this board is a dream come true. she trims fast and solid, and turns beautifully. as odd as this may sound, it is out performing my expectations. it's like everyones doubt about the functionality of a flat deck poisoned my expectations. so excited. every session i get more out of this board. i was able to avoid sets that would have punished me, i was able to catch plenty of waves. she's got a solid gas pedal and a trust worthy brake. so stoked!!!!!
