A high-volume, compact and convex shovel nose keeps the Flying Carpet 150cm Black easily afloat and allows the rider the option to creep up and ride this board in more forward weighted positions. This board gives a high-speed aggressive ride that can hold speed well thru flats and mellow terrain. It’s traditional sidecut, length and light taper give this board a more snowboard-like feel in the turns, but it’s high volume nose and extra waist width combined with our CDC 3-Dimensional base make it feel as though it’s floating on air.. hence it’s name. It’s rounded tail and longer sidecut create a nice balance of agility and high speed stability.
The “Black on Black” model features our ultra durable and fast ptex 4001 base material and a stained black topsheet that reveals the natural wood grain.
A great choice for bigger riders and riders in areas where the snow gets deep. It can also be a great solution for riding deep snow in more mellow terrain. It’s a solid cruiser in the steep open terrain and can hold it’s own in the deep and technical terrain as well. The Flying Carpet can handle the shallower and more variable snow decently but when depths get beneath 5-6 inches (13cm) you may need to stick to mellower angled terrain for best control. Performs well riding backwards but keep the switch turns light as the convex nose can be a little slippy when it becomes your tail.

I’ve been riding the 150m Flying Carpet this last year, freakin love it! I’m a bigger dude and this rides perfect, low angle, steep, doesn’t matter. I don’t know how Jeremy does it, the formula he is putting into this pow surfer it the best, no one can beat it. Thanks Jeremy for all the hard work and passion its taken to create this beauty!

I purchased the Splitsurf version of this board and I love this set up! It makes it hard to decide when picking between my normal splitboard or the splitsurfer. This board is a bit longer but tracks well on the uphill. I have only ridden this board when we had over 10 inches of new snow, however, it was a dream. If you’re looking for a smooth, controlled ride, with help on the uphill, this is the board for you.

150cm Flying Carpet
Hands down my favorite board, I’m 6’3’’ 180 and ride dry bottomless snow in Colorado. The 150cm flying carpet keeps me afloat and charging in the deep pow. Surfing mountains is the best feeling!
