OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 6
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It charges around off the trails. It rides great in variable conditions.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It is hard to read the name on the board. The yellow barely shows up. The Hedonist is such a clever name I would make it flashy and more appealing.
