I got my board in the mail! Took it out for a ride and all I have to say is WOW. The board is super stable and damp. The concave makes you feel very secure and locked on the board. the wheels have a very smooth buttery slide yet grip well. I messed around with the bushings and set up coned venom 81a bushings board side and it feels amazing. The barrels felt like they restricted the lean. My only complaint is that it gets MAD wheel bite. I have to run them a little tighter than i want because the wheel gets caught really easily and bucks me off. other than that it has to the best board i have ever ridden.

looks like you have 83.5 a (stock bushings) on one end and 90a? on the other end. what size wheels you have ? here's my set up with no wheel bite 87A(purple barrels) boardside and 85a (yellow barrels) roadside with 70 mm otang stims, i've also put some durians and zombie hawgs with no wheel bite problem.how much do you weigh? i weigh 160lbs. also make sure your hangers are not flipped.

I ride a freedom dolly single fin.

I've only had the board about a week and rode it about four times so far. General impression is that the board is pretty smooth riding and the trucks are relatively good for carving. it takes a few times to break it in. there is very little flex in my opinion. i haven't tried too many things on it yet as like I mentioned, i have only had it for a week. but if you would like I can give you some more feedback as i try more things on it.

81a? Sounds super carvy. Do you have the stock barrels boardside?
