ya I heard the topsheet gets dinged up pretty easy with the bio-film finsih they use. I'm not too worried bout that though, a few scratches on top won't change how she rides. I'm sure the sidewalls are ok or the net would be full of reviews to the contrary but I just find it odd that it feels so dry to the touch, like there is nothing sealing it up.
And just to qualify my snide reply earlier I just gotta disagree with ya BA. While it's true you shouldn't be grinding down a base too often I think a board should be built to allow for the ocassional tune up/restructuring. I was willing to drop $500 on a sweet board only becuase I plan on making it last a few riding seasons, and I want to run FAST, which means when things get scraped to shit I want the option of doing a little p-tex and grinding. The boards at the rental place I work at for example tend to last on average about 3 seasons and over the course of those 3 seasons each board tends to get run through the machine at least twice, so we're talking atleast 6 overhauls. Just looking at the depth of the edge I can tell this board just aint gonna make that benchmark.
