Ya I have somewhat of a complex when it comes to having something a lot of people have lol, and I always sticker up my boards when I get them anyways.
Graphics are a big part in my choice on a board as well as flex
-Not a big fan of the artifact or eve
-the swindle is rather tight tho, just never been partial to nitro for some reason
-k2 is good but I see a lot of them also, altho they have alot of choices with the park star, www, and what ever that other one is with the park rocker series
Amplid is an imported board so it would be scarce to see but its about an extra hundred because of that. Money isnt really that big of a problem unless its like ridiculously expensive.
I'm very curious about that academy yet. I hear good reviews about it but havent talked to anyone who has ridden it. my only concern about that one is that its a mid high flex and i was looking for a low mid or something.
