Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 29.5″ Conlogue Sea Tiger

Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 29.5″ Conlogue Sea Tiger


The Conlogue Sea Tiger surfskate is 29 1/2
inches long, by 9 3/4 wide, with a 16 inch wheelbase. Courtney has been riding Carver for years,
so she knows that a combination of a wide deck with a shorter wheelbase is the best
for a blend of control and power. Mirroring her fierce approach to surfing,
this model can be all business for surf training, or also playful and fun. This model comes with one of two Carver surfskate
truck sets; the dual-axis C7 truck for fluid surfing motion and a wider range of adjustability,
or the reverse kingpin CX truck set for snappy rail-to-rail carving and lighter weight. The Sea Tiger comes with our 69mm Roundhouse
Concave wheel, hand poured in our custom 78a formula, and assembled with Carver’s Built-In
ABEC 7 precision speed bearings. This wheel has incredible grip, so you can
lean deep into your carves with complete confidence. Wheelbase is the distance between the trucks,
and it determines how easy it is to initiate a pump, versus how fast you can pump for speed. A longer wheelbase needs more room to pump
but has a faster top speed, and flows with wider, more drawn out turns. A shorter wheelbase is easier to pump in a
smaller space with great control, and is snappier with its tighter turning radius. With a 16 inch wheelbase, the Sea Tiger is
quick and packed with power, making for a responsive surf trainer. This premium board features an eco-certified
Walnut veneer for beauty that helps preserve the planet. To watch more videos, get tech info, or shop
