The 36" Venice is such a versatile street surfer because of its balance between wheelbase and deck length in combination with Carver's surfing truck systems.
The medium length wheelbase is short enough to pump for speed on the flats, while the deck is long enough to either cruise to the market or get you down the biggest hills in town with full control. The pin-tail kick gives this cruiser the performance edge every serious longboard needs, with it's back foot wedge for pumping from the tail or popping over cracks, and the forward-set front truck placement for a little added stability at faster carving speeds.

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.
