Flite 1 Review

So...I'm an idiot. Anyone who see's the title of this post will 100% agree. I decided to go super cheap for my first board.

I've been riding (Skate, Wake, some snow) for the better park of 8-9 years. I've got decent balance and understand the physics. After my first outing I was doing 180's and C turns mid run. My confidence has grown at a pretty rapid level.

The downside of the Flite 1's is the lack of the crank tightener on the straps. If you over tighten them at home, you have issues getting in tight on the hill. There's a bit of wiggle room once you're in and it feels like it takes a pretty heavy toll on your riding. Before I bought my set up, I rented once and the basic strap in's felt 100 times more reliable.

Moral of the story: If you're looking to get into boarding and are trying to do it on a budget, wait patiently until you can do it right. I'm already shopping for a better board and bindings.
