The Gravity Drop Carve longboard skateboard has a drop through design that makes longboarding easy to learn. The Liquid Lava is 100% Canadian Maple, and the price is unbeatable in comparison. It is also comparable to the Loaded Dervish, but for a much lower price. For those who have ridden the Loaded Dervish, the Gravity Drop Carve flex pattern is closer to the Dervish Flex 2.
The Gravity Drop Carve measures in at 9.5" wide, making this board wonderful for dancing and messing around. The Liquid Lava has moderate concave giving the feet a really comfortable stance on the platform. Rail to rail, the Gravity Drop Carve Longboard skateboard maneuvers with ease.
Like most flexible boards, jumping directly on the board will lead to scratched graphics, but that shouldn't be a con for any board. We love this board because of its versatility.
The Drop Carve is definitely an all around longboard skateboard, great for the beach, ripping your favorite hill, or even just trips to the store.
The Gravity Drop Carve works really well with reversed kingpin Longboard skateboard trucks (i.e: Randal, Paris, etc) that are 180mm wide. Trucks can be customized with different bushing combinations in order to make the board very personal to the rider. Venom and Khiro bushings are what we recommend. For Downhill and cruising we would recommend that you try set up this board with a 75mm, sharp lipped longboard skateboard wheel, such as the Retro BigZigs or Orangatang In Heats. For Freeriding we like the 70mm Stimulus and the 75mm Durians by Orangatang, simply because these wheels have amazing rebound and have predictable slide characteristics.
