Our view:
A longboard dancer perfectly tuned to work with Carver's CV Trucks.

The flex on the board is very smooth, under my 80kgs I find it isn't overly snappy, but does provide a smooth bounce for getting some air on my tricks. 

At just over 9" this in an ideal double kick freestyle longboard, agile enough to carve up the streets, yet not too long to do tricks on either.
Carver don't break the bank when it comes to decks, that's for sure!

Definitely the best value dancer we've ever had in the shop in my eyes, it's still made in the USA!

From Carver Skateboards:
The Platypus is a symmetrical top-mount cutaway deck with large functional kicks nose and tail.

The 7 ply deck is light, the wheelbase is short for it's length so this board is meant to pop, shove and flip. While it's taller than a dropped deck, the trucks mount without risers directly to the wood for a low profile, and the design of the cutaways along with the wheel wells means there will never be any wheelbite. Available in Top Mount only.

9 1/16" wide
4 1/2" tail
4 1/2" nose
28 3/4" wheelbase
