ev13wt I bomb down the hills in Austria with mine full friggen tilt and have never had an issue with it being unstable. .as a matter of fact, I went much faster (well, as fast as gravity would let me) fully in control, where as one day earlier on my 2004 non rocker board I was enviously watching some due gassing it down a hill where all I was doing is flying from bumb to bump in the afternoon.

Test if ya can, but its a great board. I have the 159 version, maBe its a bit stiffer? Great board.

seanboobs Thank you for your experiences Skatebanana101 i look forward to riding one :].. But i think MistahTaki is talking about those huge 40+ foot kickers, which i've also heard the skate banana isn't the best for, but not horrible.

have it ever taken big jumps with it? doesn't it ever wash out on the landings? i think many of those cons apply to many reverse camber boards.

That's pretty much all the cons of the board.

seanboobs Thank you all, i have heard nothing bad about this board and was wondering if people were just biased haha, but now im so much more psyched to go boarding soon

slyder Im new to the sport so not much experience with boards but I bought a 09/10 for this season. I've been out twice this year and will be out this weekend.
It is much softer than my old lib tech, sorry I don't know the model. It gripped much better than my old board in our man made snow.
I liked the flex but I am still not used to it. Once I get some more time on it I can add more info
