I tried the Machete the other day and didnt get on with it at all tbh.
Here are three other boards i really liked:
- YES Jackpot
- YES The Basic
- Salomon Salomonder
The YES basic sounds like it might be what you want?
I rented a machete last year and didnt like it either, found it hard to turn, and at the same time a little loose/sloppy - I see it is a flat board with a bit or rocker in the ends, maybe that was it - I'm used to riding either camber or hybrid camber on the end and rocker in the middle.
