An absolute gem. If you want something you can do deep carves and pumps, this is the board. With an amazing flex it provides a comfortable ride, and camber lets you dig into the board when you hit those deep carves. The paris trucks provide really good turning and the 78a wheels provide adequate grip. There are better wheels out there, but as it is, the wheels are fine. Not recommended for bombing because of the nature of the board. The high flex does not give you the stability needed for speed. But this is not meant to be a downhill board, but a cruiser/carving machine. Overall a great board. NS also has the Heist which is a drop-though version that is a little stiffer. Also highly recommended.
