The nose and tail are just the right size. I love popping ollies and kick-flips on it. You can also do some crazy blunt slides if you're into that stuff. When it comes to downhill I really enjoy a board that's very stiff and that has a good width, so I don't feel like I'll lose balance anytime soon. So I can really count on this board for control at higher speeds.
When it comes to the design and graphic, both are very solid. The shape is simple, but it has those little awesome features that really make the difference. The graphic is sweet, you can appreciate the blend of colors and its' simplicity.
Overall I truly recommend this board, I trust it for all types of skateboarding and I'm sure you you'll enjoy it too!
Robin cut a carry handle in this board and outfitted it with water wheels. A potent combination I originally was to use only for rain but now have been using daily for a couple of months.
Robins decks are high quality and this is a great design. Importantly he matches the components to the design which results in a great ride. I loosened up the ride with Blood Orange 89a barrels (red) and 83a cones (blue).
Look no further, IMO.
I ride mine on the short wheelbase with 50 degree blue calibers and venom balls/cannibles. With the wheels wells I always have enough clearance to be wheelbite free!
This is overall a great board for riding everything! Great for someone just starting to a seasoned veteran!
just some words of my opinion.
-The concave locks your feet in place without it being too big and making the stance uncomfortable.
-The small kick up front really does help with the ollies. The back kick isnt short but isnt long so again, its perfect.
-The gas pedals are more for dh stance when pre-drifting into corners.
I ride with a wider-ish stance. Switch toesides have gotten waaaay easier. I usually fluctuate between 36-38 so its perfect.
Its a stable ride and a great platform for shove its and no complies.
OH and also, the graphic of this board is sick!
Will totally shred mine untill it dies and then get another one.
