Thanks again for the help, am looking into some of those options! Am also checking out some of the sales that are popping up around here (Australia) at the moment - still not much of a bargain compared to even normal retail prices over there!
Had a look at the Rome Madisons (06/07) yesterday, definitely like the look of them, and hear they ride really really well!!
Also was having a chat about a couple of other boards - has anyone heard anything about these, and how they fare? I'm aware some of them are outside my price range that I set originally, but if they're relaly worth the dosh, then I might be able to stretch a little further...I also realise that some of them are freestyle boards, but I probably wouldn't mind having that versatility, coz I do want to get into doing the park stuff too eventually!
What's the opinion on the Forum Craft, Burton Troop or Burton Feelgood?
