And by wondering if its a smart idea I was just looking for some feedback on the board before I go spend 1000+ on a setup, I know it's a completely different type of board that I'm used to but I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to handle it
I've been on a CX the last few seasons, and even though I have other boards in the quiver it's still my favorite. The thing that makes the CX difficult to ride or adjust to is how you have to balance power with finesse. It requires aggressive riding to get the performance aspect but you'll have to be smooth and controlled as well. The CX is very rewarding if you can find that point but like the others said it won't be any fun if you can't.
