"The Serape, which is the Spanish name for the traditional Mexican blanket we use here in SoCal for everything from Hot Rod seat covers to beach blankets, is one of our new incremental length short boards which fills in the gaps between whole-number sizes. Since the quickest pumping comes from smaller boards we’ve added numerous in-between sizes so you can really dial in your selection. For this model we wanted a small template with a longer wheelbase, so you get the performance of a slightly longer board with a smaller, lighter deck. We were inspired by the short, wide-tailed surfboards we use for carving and air tricks crossover popular in Ventura county. The short length gives you that snappy pump and carve, while the wide tail gives you plenty of leverage to dig deep with your rear foot for powerful turns, and boost big airs with a solid take off and landing platform. Recommended with the CX truck set for most progressive surfskating." - Carver

What’s the difference between the C7 and the CX?
The C7 is Carver's signature surfskate front truck, and it has an incredible amount of pump and turning radius. It has a spring loaded swing arm that allows the nose of the board to sway slightly from side to side, essentially allowing you to snap your turns from the tail and pump effortlessly for speed. It is as close to surfing on land you will get!
The CX is Carver's reverse-kingpin longboard truck. It is like a standard longboard truck but given the Carver treatment, has more pump and is tighter turning. It has a similar feel to the C7 but is less extreme, so if you want a more longboard skate than surf skate but want to pump and surf, then the CX is the truck you want.
