Indoor Survival

Has anyone ridden the cambered version? I'm looking into the 154, instead of the stairmaster. Seems a bit better for jumps.

What about stairmaster extreme?

The only thing I'm worried about is it will be too stiff. I've heard alot of people say it is too stiff, and is really hard to jib.

By the way, this may be a stupid question; the indoor has a centered stance I'm assuming? I couldn't find it anywhere.

Stairmaster is killer for jumps, as is the Indoor. There's a carbon X in the indoor inbetween the feet that go out to the inserts so the tip and tail stay soft for easy pressing, but theres good carving stability due to the X. The Exteme is a real heavy jib and jump version of the Stairmaster. Made with better materials so the durability factor is raised. Theres no carbon in it, so it's not a stiff deck.

Yeah, that sounds right. But, I've heard from a couple people that it is really stiff. Idk, maybe they were just really light. I've also heard the stairmaster can be noodly, and wash out on jumps. I think I'm going to go with the indoor, given the flex is right in between. (5) Plus, they last super long. The stairmaster doesnt have a sintered base either, making it slower. And I've heard they don't last long AT ALL.

Stairmaster is a softer board. More for the dude mini biking thru the park hitting everything. Indoor has a stiffer core, built more for dudes hitting bigger booters in the park. But in no way is the indoor stiff, nor is the stairmaster a noodle.

Sorry, I meant the extreme being stiff. And yeah, I'm starting to hit bigger kickers (40+) and still jib alot, so I meant with the tail and nose being softer, it seems ideal.
