This board is awsome!!! It lacks a nose and tail meaning that the nose and tail are both flattened out nicely, making butters effortless. So soft, but still has some solid pop, will lock onto rails like a board should. I can't wait to get my true first laps through the park on mine. (Beware you may spontaneously Jizz in your Pants as you strap in.) Bottom line, just buy this board.
