Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 33.75″ Yago Skinny Goat

Carver Skateboards: Ride Review – 33.75″ Yago Skinny Goat

The Skinny Goat surfskate is 33 3/4 inches
long, by 9 7/8 wide, with a 17 inch wheelbase. Made for team rider Yago Dora, this double
kick board features a wider stance for better carving control and precision on both flat
ground and transition, a high performance surf trainer for one of the most progressive
surfers in the world. 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 Skinny Goat 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 17 inch wheelbase and double-kick mold,
the Skinny Goat is an ideal trainer for surfers looking to practice progressive maneuvers
like aerials, blow tails, and nosepicks with a proper surf stance. To watch more videos, get tech info, or shop
