Details

Our view:
The range of skateboards from Carver might confuse you, but when you see how they offer a full range of wheelbase sizes, it starts to make sense.

Wheelbase is the term used to describe the distance between the inner most truck mounting holes in the board.
This distance is crucial, as a tight wheelbase can be unstable for taller riders, while a huge wheelbase might be harder for shorter riders to use effectively.

We recommend this board for riders up to 165cm in height.
Or taller experienced riders who know they want a short snappy setup.

From Carver:
Sometimes you want to dial in your wheelbase just so, and full-inch sizes are not specific enough.

With the 30.25” Firefly we’ve shaved ¾” off our popular 31 Resin to make this board even snappier while still retaining the same progressive shape of an archetypal squash tail.

The narrower nose keeps the front of the board light and nimble, while the proper kick tail is a wedged deckpad that locks in your back foot where it counts, giving you leverage into any tail-driven trick.
From boneless air grabs and ollies to bank and ditch surfing, this little board is a true surfskate.
Practice the same tricks you want to perfect in the water, plus work on flow, trim and power carves.

With a 16 ½” wheelbase you get a little more stability than other shorties, but not so much that you lose the super easy pump and the driveway-tight carving.

Recommended with the CX truck set for a more progressive skate performance.

  • 9 3/4"" wide
  • 6 1/4"" tail
  • 3 3/8"" nose
  • 16 1/2"" wheelbase
