The Carver model by Infinity Surfboards has a pulled in nose with good kick for late drops and a narrow tail for carving turns. The rocker is relatively straight in the center for speed and wave catching ability. The tail rocker is more blended than the other models for speed. The Carver can be shaped up to 10' long, but it has become the favorite for hot, experienced riders in the 8'6" to 9'6" range. Experienced surfers know that a wide tailed SUP is hard to bottom turn or go vertical in a juicy wave. You can see that the tail template on these boards is pulled way in to 17". This also allows fast rail to rail zigzags with out moving your back foot.
