In my experience most people riding TBT and not liking it are either not adaptive enough or are trying to ride it like a traditional based camber board. It blends benefits of camber and rocker. I rode the original Whatever and it is still one of my all time favorite boards. Once on edge it drives like camber. Before that it drives between the feet as that's where you have edge contact. Realize that and change the way you rdie to compensate and its great. And as far as it being sketchy on jumps. Wasnt for me. I loved the feeling off jumps. The only thing it takes some real time getting use to is technical buttering. But if thats a concern dont get a Goliath or camber for the matter.

The Goliath is a fantastic deck. Grab one.
