The idea is to bring together the benefits of two conflicting surfboard concepts, longboards and shortboards. We want to fuse the paddling and cruise of a longboard with the tighter turning arcs and responsiveness of a shortboard. The Carpet, based on a Magic Carpet surfboard is one of our most versatile boards, surfers are riding this as a step down or back up to their longboard. That could be because you want a tighter turning arc or because it is easier to handle than a longboard when the waves get bigger or bumpier. It can also be ridden as a stand alone surfboard or replacement to a Minimal. It is also an option for beginners to intermediate, because the Carpet is particularly stable for its length.
