what is the experience level need for this board
beginners intermediat or advanced?
I'd say intermediate to have total control of the board. Arbor boards are typically stiffer than Sector 9's. I think it makes it harder to ride, but it really depends on what you're planning on riding. If you're wanting to do a lot of carving, this isn't a great board to begin with, but if you want a sturdy, stiff ride for fast straight-a-ways then you'll be fine beginning with it. One of my friends bought it as his first board and did just fine.
Hey, I got this board as my first and I love it! and at this price you won't regret it, perfect flex and all. I'm now buying this one for a buddy for his bday since he loved mine.
I've found the opposite. Perhaps only for this board, but I digress. This board is more flexy than my friend's bamboo deck that's a sector 9. In fact, his seemed a bit dead. This was my first and it rides great. :)
