No problems, no issues. Note the stance setback, it does make a big difference. I used to go duck-footed in my bindings (about 12 degrees each), on this board I'm 'regular' with 8 and 21 settings, which seems to work well. Flex is great, I'm 6ft2in 165lbs riding a 161 wide with no problems. For my height/weight, I would probably recommend a 159, but 161 was all they had in wide (which I needed for my huge feet) and it seems to work pretty well. It is a bit of a challenge carving w/ this board on hard packed because I'm a bit light for it.
