jeez why is this so expensive? you can get a whatever deck you want (besides something stupid like carbfibe) and the floating axel randal trucks for this much.... you might go over on wheels and bearing but still its probably waaay better then this setup.

This is a quality setup for the person who needs it, they know they need it and probably go faster than a person buying a sector 9 pintail. Never Summer builds these by hand and is competing against some of the Landyachtz drop decks.

This board is a purpose built Downhill board that can dabble in a bit of free riding. The drop through design and Randal trucks with black bushings give it a stable ride at speed. Loosen it up and you can dabble in a little free riding. Stiff flex adds to stability at speeds. It is not meant to be a commuter board, but I've found that its weight and low ride helps me push easily, and the momentum from the weight means I am pushing less.
Flatter concave and slight rocker means your feet fit nicely and grip onto the surface of the board. Generous width means even larger riders will be satisfied.
The looks are great too. The top uses a special texalium (sp*) fiberglass and is a aluminum weeve.
Over all this is a great DH board for anyone. Although it is pricey, a purpose built Downhill board will cost roughly around the same price after you outfit it with the correct accessories.
I received this board from NS's VP of Sales and Marketing, and I've been using it for 6 months now and it is still my favorite Drop through DH board to date.
You won't regret it!
would it break if you go done a hill fast,then jump on a ramp high then drop but land on board, would the skateboard break if that happen?

NS builds a solid board, it probably wouldn't but we're not liable if you break. Good luck getting this sucker off the ground.

Just saying, but I think if you're going to drop $350 on a longboard, you might not want to take it off jumps - especially if you're wondering if it's going to break if you do.
