It is Truly AWSOME! the flex is exactly what i was looking for. i (as im sure alot of you) Love a flexible board! but after having the park pickle for a season i realized that there is Such thing as TOO MUCH flex haha. this year i wanted something that would work better in the air and great at Stomping those big air tricks! the Art PandaHippo is Sweeet!!!! gotten lots of Complements on it Already! the only thing is that i wish it had more ColoR ha but besides that it is a serious Performance board that i highly recommend! especially if your in an 11.5 boot like me and are sick of draggin those Toes!
