Carver Skateboards - 29.75" Serape CX.4 Complete
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.

This is Carver’s hybrid surf and skate truck. On the one hand it’s a lightweight standard RKP (Reverse King Pin) hanger and base, on the other it has a patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system. This means that you can pump this truck like a C7, but it lands airs and rides fakie with more stability as well. This opens up aerial maneuvers, and keys in with the latest progression of airs in surfing.
