wow, im sorry i am kind of a newb and dont understand what you are saying
i have a cheap board i bought from craigslist and like i said it seems like its hard to bend the board. im planing to spend quite a few days this winter perfecting my skills and would like to find a better board and use my current one for the street parks. since i am a newb/intermediate rider i really want to try and do everything by the end of the summer. some backwoods, rails, ground tricks and jumps.
i guess though with this statement
"Pressing a board is more about the riders technique than the board itself"
it might be more me then my board
The NVS Evo may be more to your liking, it will be a bit softer and more pressable out in the tip and tail. How much do you weigh??
