timmytard Beside the Sick Stick, it looks more nose fat, with a way shorter tail.

Wide boards rail carves better & easier.

They may not be as fast edge to edge, but once they're up there.

You dig trenches.

Watched him ride it this year in the derby. Guy kills it.

I haven't. I'd be curious to give one a whirl. I imagine they're a bear on groomers due to the width. I'd also be curious to see how they handle speed with them being that short.

Interesting right? I did a double take when i saw the length. 151? I started on a 155 and it seemed like a skateboard!

Is there a state for total surface area of a board? Looking at the pic of the Derby compared to the Sick Stick, it's nose width looks bigger...curious how much surface area it actually covers.
