Yeah, it's going to be softer than that Kass you ride, but it still has just a medium flex. Can't believe I haven't set it up and tried it yet.

soft is a crazy understatement. granted i dont have alot of experience with different boards, but this board was MUSH. Felt sketchy on the edges and made me feel pretty uncomfy on it. It did have good speed though and was really easy to ride flat with the center-tapered based or whatever they call it.

you think this board is that soft? i haven't riden it but i flexed it in the store and it didn't feel like a noodle.

curious, how much do you weigh? i'm looking into this board but i was under the impression it rode more like a midflexing park board.

im 5'8, 165 and by no means fat and I thought this board was straight MUSH. I'm not the only one who rode it either.. ,andreas, who's probably my height and 130-140lbs said similar things. It felt super sketchy even in the slush

What size was it?

I have the 157 and though it's still wrapped, I've done the hand flex test as well and it doesn't seem that soft... if it turns out to be that soft, fine. I'll just butter the shit out of it and love every minute of it!

its a 151.. i normally ride a 155 but ive ridden smaller before without any issue. and ,andreas rides like a 148 so this was actually bigger for him.

i will say, it was super easy to walk on it and stuff. but i found it to be very one dimensional

A piece of pvc pipe with my feet duck taped on would've been more stable.
