Basically, a Longboard with the centre 2½ft missing out of the middle, the 'Magic Carpet' is the board of choice for many reasons. It has the same width in the nose, tail and centre point as a traditional Longboard, so it paddles and picks up waves with ease. However the reduced rail line allows you to turn on a mark and perform in a wide range of conditions.
The pulled in tail and subtle concave through the fins provide a lively yet predictable feel creating plenty of drive through turns holding the tail in the wave, even through bumpy sections.
The longboard blank for the 'Magic Carpet' gets the board as flat as possible which enables it to both catch waves and trim easily, it also draws as much speed as possible from the wave. The board has a lot of volume throughout and this is carried right through to the nose. There is just enough lift in the nose to avoid pearling and the same in the tail to allow for quick changes in direction.
This board is literally the best of both worlds and the perfect all round shape for the style of waves here in Sligo!
I can meet any where in the Strandhill/Sligo with this board.
Board bag, Leash and Wax included!!!
I have also been living here my whole life and can offer priceless info to you on where and when to surf locally.
