I just thought I'd give you a look the 2013 arbor westmark since it tends to be brought up a lot on the forum as far freestyle riding. I must say that this years board is my favorite arbor to be made so far. After riding a draft for two season I wanted to switch to something with steel edges again and a little more pop. I got even more than I asked for, the grip tech never fails to impress, the board has a ton of pop, yet I can do presses and butters as easy as my draft. And I forgot to mention that the top sheet is so sick. I'd highly recommend you get this board, it can do everything. let me know if you have any questions!
My setup: 153 Arbor Westmark

Has anyone noticed the difference in the bases since they switched to extruded this year?
I rode the '13 Blacklist in February and bought the '12 Blacklist about two weeks later. Didn't get to ride a lot on it since our winter sucked balls and was basically over by March 10 and then my wife had to go pop out a kid (don't worry, it's *my* kid) but I don't really see it being a huge issue I still had that Blacklist going scary fast for a park board even with the extruded base. Plus just remember it's a park board and you're going to (probably) beat the shit out of it anyways, so the extruded is A) less expensive and B) easier to repair, even if you sacrifice a little bit of top speed.
