the fact that it is soft lets you get away with a long board easier. the shape also makes it more naturally playful. on jumps a longer board gives you more to land on so he doesnt have to land as centered. Is there more swing wieght when he spins? yes but it isnt noticeable, and will force the rider to learn better technique over getting away with things because he has a tiny thing strapped to him.
