Ok so like I said Arbor is a rad company and I love them. I believe I have seven of their skateboards. So with that being said I was stoked to get this bad boy in the mail only to find out that it was warped, bummed as I was Dogfunk took care of me (as always) and sent me out a new one. I got it and it was a little warped from the get go but not as bad as the last so I stuck with it. Problem was it only got worse and worse. I don't think that Arbor put a wood sealer on this model, not sure why. Best guess would it has to do something with the cork. Long story short the board looks beautiful it's a really fun shape but the downside is it tends to warp. Other downside is if you are buying for looks the cork gets dirty real fast just FYI. I would try the Arbor Pocket Rocket instead. I have this board and I love it. -I'm out.
