Don’t be fooled by it’s short seeming length, the Flying Carpet Powsurfer 140cm is packing serious volume from nose to tail giving it excellent floatation, agility and pop. This makes for a very playful ride and allows the rider to get as aggressive as they’d like. A high-volume, compact and convex shovel nose keeps the Flying Carpet Powsurfer 140cm easily afloat and allows the rider the option to move around and ride this board in more forward weighted positions. Each stance position gives the board a different feel in the turns, so that freedom in your feet translates to a variety of ride/feels on the same board.
Characteristics of this board create a high-speed ride in the steeper slopes that can hold speed well thru flats and mellow terrain. Traditional sidecut, high volume nose/ waist width combined with our CDC 3-dimensional base make this board feel as though it’s floating on air.. hence it’s name. It’s rounded tail and short length make it incredibly agile and it’s steeper kick tail gives this board excellent pop when launching airs, popping ollies in the flats, dropping cliffs or smacking lips. A versatile board for all around riding that would make an excellent start to a proper powsurf quiver.
This board has been tested by the best powsurfers in the world in a wide variety of snow conditions from mucky slush to light and dry powder and it’s handled beautifully. The Flying Carpet has a wide body, so it prefers depths over 5-6 inches but can still be ridden in shallower snow on mellower slopes. Performs well riding backwards but keep the switch turns light as the convex nose can be a little slippy when it becomes your tail while riding backwards.
Recommended for US mens boot sizes 9.5-12 and rider weights between 140-210 lbs (72-118kg).
* For riders with bigger feet (12+) or for those who ride light/dry/deep pow and want ridiculously good float, speed and agility in a smaller package be sure to check out the “wide” option.
If you are not sure what width will be the best powsurfer for you contact us and we are happy to help.
