Oh how I love you
I'm finally ready to make my big review for the Custom X. I bought this board a while ago and wanted to give it a good long use before reviewing it. As you can see from the stars my initial impressions were good.
This board is the shit. I absolutely love it, I've been boarding for 12 years now and this is hands down the best board I've ever owned or been on. It's much stiffer than I was expecting. This makes it the perfect board for me, I'm by nature a Freeride oriented rider. Steep and deep is where I hang. I wanted something that was stiff but not Never Summer Titan TX stiff as a board for me. This Custom X fits the bill. It's stiff and responsive but not so stiff that it's completely unforgiving. Great edge to edge hold and control. The N20 WFO Vision base is one of the fastest on the market and this board proves it. I've yet to be caught when I open it up. Doesn't chatter at high speeds and keeps on trucking when you're throwing some serious g's into a turn.
I am also a cliff/natural jump rider which is the extent of my freestyle use. It works wonders for that in my opinion. Enough forgiveness to let you pull out of some sketch landings but not so much that it will just slop out from underneath you. Lightweight for easy spin initiation.
I would say on a 10 scale, I give this board an 11. I've been looking at it for years and finally pulled the trigger on it. Happy I did.
