Been a fan of Landyachtz for a few years now and decided to add to my quiver by buying the new Ripper graphic when I saw the 2023 lineup release. The Ripper carves like crazy, and the flexiness of the deck makes it super comfortable and fun to stand on. I'm in college and my campus has a ton of hills, and this board makes them all the more fun. I have several other boards from Landyachtz, but this is the most fun board from them I have ever bought. Even with the narrower trucks and flexier deck, I still feel super confident on hills with the ridiculously wide wheelbase and stance. Carving on this board is so enjoyable and easy, and you can really lean into the tight turns and even kick out little slides if you please. Amazing board, and I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who skates, as it is both great for people just learning, but also provides the confidence and capability for more experienced riders. Unlike some other boards, the Ripper is great at doing it all. Don't know what else to say about it other than that it is pretty much perfect and makes skateboarding even more fun than it already is.
