this board is the best board I have had for the price. It is not for everybody though. If you would like a board that locks into lines and holds an edge than this board will be perfect for you but do not get this if you want something playful because you will be disappointed. The board is also super fast! It does not have a sinistered base but it burns anyone's deck no matter what their base is made of and the pop on the deck is insane. bottom line: if you are looking for a board that is good in the park but rides like an all mountain board than you will love this board.
