hey , u will be fine with the hk in trees

i took mine out to breck this weekend and it is basically my first "camber" board ever and I really loved how it handles the trees.

First of all, the base is really fast, which can be a good and bad thing in trees. then it is damp as well, on the upper spectrum in lib boards. The mellow MTX is really good as well, not grabby feeling like on my t rice but grip the ice patches here and there.

tips and tail are a little stiff for what i expected, if it can be a tad softer, that will make it really playful, but again, u gain some u lose some.

it does ride like we say: a rear wheel drive
