    not trying to sway your decision, but have you looked into the original boards...I have a custom 35 and it felt the best out of any other board i tried.

    Love my Land Yachtz . The deck is built to slide. Great board.

    I wouldn't put C7s on a drop through. To get the most out of the carver trucks you really need to get your back foot out on the kicktail, well behind the rear truck. I don't think you would be able to pump nearly as well on a drop through. Just my opinion though, never tried it.

    this is what I have also. I love this thing and got if for a steal a few years ago. I have my dog pull me on this for miles; he loves it and I love it.

    Just demoed a Green Room model at Coastal Edge. It was flipping awesome. I want to try a longer board to feel the difference (Green Room was longest one they had in stock) and then whichever one I like is going on my birthday list...less than a month a way. Awesome!

    I have a 38" FaceTime and a 31" Resin. These boards are perfect for surf training when you cant surf. They really work the legs and the body mechanics are the same as surfing. The 38" is better for strength training and pumping as It requires a bit more muscle to pump. The 31" is better for turns and muscle memory.

    The best skateboards I have found for carving are the retro penny or globe boards. They are extremely maneuverabile and fast. Very similar to surfing, perfect for cross training. I have purchased many long boards trying to emulate surfing and by far these small plastic boards are the best.

    I rode those penny boards before they were "retro". While they are a blast to ride they've got nothing on the Carver C7 truck when it comes to copying the mechanics of surfing on land.

    I agree the Carver is awesome, the closest thing to surfing on land. I don't skateboard but this thing is real fun. Good training and fun on flat days.
