I bought this board without having ridden it, and was pleasantly surprised.
The board works wonders with sliding, downhill and even pushing.
I'm 6'1" and the 39" is sweet and fits my wide stance perfectly. If you're a bit shorter than I would recommend the 36".
The wheel flare/foot locks are perfect for locking in and hanging a sick slide. This thing slides like a dream. It's so effortless when you're in the foot locks and it's going to be sweet slide every time.
The kick trails are awesome but they felt a little weird at first due to concave that continued until about halfway down the tails, but I quickly got used to it. The tails are perfect for turning on a dime and you can even olly of the occasional curb.
It has the perfect amount of concave and it has .7" of continuous rocker. Pretty sweet.

I would highly recommend this board to anyone who wants an all-arounder and who wants to have DAMN GOOD FUN.
