I'm still very much a beginner but I love my proto. This board has allowed me to progress at a good pace this season. I know that it'll do anything I ask of it.
Just rode the board today...I'm ready to sell my other board. It rides like nothing I'm been on. I'm very out of shape, but I was able to complete a tailblock, love the pop on the Proto. I might switch out the Flux RK30 for my Union Contact Pro.
