ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY? One of my favorite boards of the ShaperSummit! It’s the definition of a quiver killer because it can do anything. I was so comfortable charging and going fast no matter what I was riding. Steeps, chunder, jumps, or whatever just rip it as hard and fast as you can because this board can take it.
