So I’m coming from the classic pin tail 40’’ style board that I’ve used for over 15 years. Finally decided to make a change and I am so glad I did. This board is amazing. It has a lower stance, more real estate for my big feet to balance on, and is overall a sturdier and more comfortable ride. I wasn’t sure about the grooves in the board at first but they are a great feature for gaining better traction on the board itself for stability over bumps, curves, high speed, everything. Super comfy board that’s perfect for cruising or for speed. My favorite board I’ve tried by far. Paired these with the ceramic bearings and the plow kings wheels and the Bear Gen 6 - 180mm 50 Degree Trucks. Perfect combo right there.
