WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Nice relaxed feel, easy to rode

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Edge hold, missing inserts.

OVERALL COMMENTS: Good overall board, easy to ride. Took some playing to find the right balance point to get good edge hold. The “backseat” inserts are odd. Don’t get why not just put another two inserts in between. Would have liked my foot there more
