It just depends, Technine is a very sketchy brand in my eyes. If you look all over they have good and bad reviews. Unlike Lib-tech, burton, and ride. Which primarily have good all around reviews. Technine makes good and bad products, not saying that every company doesnt, just ive seen alot more with technine than any company. I mean it all depends on how ur riding, what style, and where ur riding. But for the price of this board depending on the style of ur riding i would check out a kink, or just look around. im just not a very big fan of tech.
