That Antler is, IMO, the best looking board I have seen. I don't like the new graphic for 2014 and can't even find any of the 2013 models anymore. I know you don't buy a board for its graphics, but I am definitely not going to ride a board with a bunch of goth skull crap on it. Thanks for the input on the your experience with the antler. If you were to do it over again would you still get that board?
For sure, in good conditions this thing is fun as hell, has encouraged a whole new playful side to my riding. I think learning to ride this in tough conditions will only improve my riding and force me to exaggerate my technique as an intermediate rider tryin to progress to advanced. I do like having my stiff camber board in my quiver though for when I want speed or to push myself on the steeps.
