I have ridden Gnu/ Lib boards for the better part of my 18+ years of riding - specifically the B-Street for the last two. While I LOVED the B-Street, I never found it to really break in or flex smoothly, even after 180 days on it. I am small and have always had difficulty "breaking in" boards, boots, bindings, etc., so I decided to go with softer everything for a change this year. The B-Street was my friend from the first moment I rode it. It just felt smooth and comfortable. As a huge fan of the BTX technology, and being "used to" the B-Street, the B-Nice is everything the B-Street was, but "nicer." It makes riding EVERYTHING easier, and instructing (i.e. riding slowly with many edge changes, butters, transitions, switch, etc.) a breeze. If you're looking for an easy-riding but responsive board that holds up under a bit of a push, this is your board.
True to size - great pool/ beach cover up. Great color.
My only beef would be that it's a little longer than I would want it to be - but I'm 5' 4", so it might just be me :)
I have a pair of black Reef Ginger sandals from YEARS ago that are still my all-time favorite. So when it came to ordering a similar pair in a different color at this price, it was a no-brainer. They are exactly what I expected.
BTW - I tried the Reef Crystal last summer and NEVER broke them in - for some reason Reef put the seams on the leather on the most sensitive part of the foot - between the toes on top - and they drove me crazy. So back to the Ginger. Should have just gone this route in the first place.
Great sandals, great price. Great service from DogFunk.
