If you have larger feet or body the Skunk HP is the perfect board! I rode it and the Rice both felt equal but the skink was more stable but still aggressive
Thanks, NWskunkAPE. I actually went ahead and picked up the 2013 Jamie Lynn classic, with the C3 ((just because I wanted to try out a different camber profile)). But, I'm going to go ahead and pick up the horsepower version of the SkunkApe in a 170cm range, later this year. I'm looking forward to the Skunk Ape, as well. I've already got a Birdman in a 180cm, and I LOVE IT!!!
