OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 7
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: DEEP sidecut, could maneuver it like some sort of precise knife
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Nothing that stood out, maybe would’ve liked to ride a larger size?
OVERALL COMMENTS: Loved this board. Had such a great deep sidecut that somehow didn’t affect me as far as toe or heel drag, which was awesome. Perfect stiffness and poppy as hell. Loved the slight taper and it’s ability to charge through the heavier pow later in the day.
