    I asked my wife for a cruiser for my birthday. Nothing too big or long and something that carves nicely to ride around my neighborhood. I know that "Carver" is popular but wanting to know what else I should be looking at. Thanks for any help.

    I was going to do some glue-ups but I got distracted with fins. Got all the woods cut and ready to go

    What ever deck you get, go for the carver trucks. Make sure you use the risers and test for wheel bite. These trucks have totally changed the game for me. I use them at skate parks and bowls. So much fun!!

    What surflax said. With Carvers you can pump the board for speed, plus the front end drifts a bit while the back end is locked in, very similar to the way a surfboard rotates around the fins. CX or C7 are both great and have a similar feel. Pair with any kick-tail equipped board (single or double) of your preference and big cruiser wheels. I dig Carvers with a 40" +/- deck for cruising, but basically anything 27" -42" will work depending on how you want to ride it.

    Plus one on the carvers. I love mine (CI pod mod model). The trucks really do mimic surfing in my opinion and it’s fun to see how far you can get by pumping alone. They also have a “garage” section on their website if you’re on a budget, can pick up blemish items for a discount.

    Careful with those "Longboards". They go really fast if your bombing hills. I ride a standard size board with the white colored bushings for heavy riders and bones ATV wheels which are great on the street. Those pump parks are a lot of fun!
