^ Stone grind the base if it looks that way, deep structure on a base like that is your friend.
There's only one board I regret owning and that was the Santa Cruz PantherPly aka Jon Kooley from like 2002. It had too much camber, the flex pattern was one of the most whack things in the world, and it never held an edge on anything.
Otherwise I would say I've been pretty lucky in the decks I've personally owned, reviewing is a different story. There are decks I wish I had never strapped on.
