I was looking for a board that could take me from my beginner stages of connecting turns and starting to feel confident.
This board was the perfect board for taking the step into the big leagues (sounds cheesy, but true). I felt 100% more comfortable with higher speeds, steeper runs, even jumping, and then the fact that it is a board that lasted the whole season without any real wear was the icing on the cake.
I will keep this board forever. Does not get any better than the Eero Ettala board!
