this board RIPS!!!!! i have been riding directional for years. been riding a rozi proline and a NS T5 wide. i wanted to start pressing and doing more in the park. this board was the best thing for me ever. i was lucky enough to have scoped it on brociety for 170 cashmoney shipped. i have never been so happy with a purchase. the only gripe i have is with the skier who put a scratch on it the 1st day!! >!
