Twitchy is when bombing....say at 40+mph; is somewhat design inherent in the c2btx. However skill/technique ought to make it a non-issue. Its a stable/solid...if you want more stable when bombing you got to got to a cambered board.


As for.... "going on my current board it starts to slide (maybe I just need to get the edges sharpened though" other than sharp edges"...for me, sliding is also a matter of not being angulated enough over the edge and often being too chicken shit to further point it down the fall line cause I already haulin ass...so shutting down the speed.
