I like ollie-ing on my SL now off of natural rollers and kickers, but I've wanted to butter it a little more than I can. I don't know if the lack of butterability from my SL is from my lack of skill or just the stiffness of the board. Probably a bit of both

If only you could talk Vince into adding the bright orange sno-glo effect on the bottom of the 4.0...I'd be sold in a heartbeat!!
The SL is definitely buttereable. So is the new proto HD. Not easy on either board but still doable. I was nose and tail pressing the HD through all the groomed flats on sunday. 180lbs, 158 proto HD
