Manufacturer Description: 

 

The Flying Carpet 140cm 3D Powsurfer has extra volume that gives this board ample float while maintaining solid performance in shallower depths and tricky snow. Its shorter length makes for a very fun, playful ride without sacrificing great floatation. Stable ride at high speeds yet agile in the tighter more technical terrain. Perfect for charging big mountain lines or cruising mellow flowing hills. This board has been a crew favorite for the past few years. Exclusively available with our CDC 3-Dimensional Base Technology for the highest performance in all conditions and the most aggressive and responsive ride possible.

Available in a wide variety of sizes to perfectly fit any boot size and rider size. Choose from X-Narrow, Narrow, Standard, Wide and the mammoth X-wide. 


 

Don’t be fooled by its 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 its name. Its rounded tail and short length make it incredibly agile and its steeper kicktail 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 men's 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” & “X-wide” options.
