I've been thinking about getting one since june and just ordered one today. Now I have something to look foward to during the summer besides jetskiing.
you wont regret it. its awesome cause regardless of how uber gnar the hill is, you can still hit it without worrying. honestly, youll find that steeper hills are easier. Ive found a sick one near me and my buddies wont even dare to hit it on a longboard, they louge it actually, but i can kill it on the freeboard!
If only the curbs and pavement weren't so hard...I loved frebording...I will get a board sooner or later...On steeper hils is not easier./..you have to be very quick in your transitions and very decise...if you hesitate you eat pavement.
