Smile 180 Video

You guys better reply this time

I would embed but it doesn't work, sorry but I have to link it. Would use youtube but the quality sucks.

VIDEO



Here is Thoris attempting his first jump



The board is amazing, the landings are really soft, very responsive and loose when it needs to be. Pop is also very good and consistent. But what sucks is that after one day of riding this is what my board looks like



those ramps really fuck them up, oh well

Lookin good man. Looks like youre very comfortable with those surface 180s, both ways.

Sucks about the board, but comes with the whole cable park business!

that's about what it looks like. that seems slow. the reason i asked is that it looks like you are pretty deep in the water.

This board sits deeper in the water, the main reason it does that is because it is wider than other boards. So that might be the reason why it looks like that. But to be honest 18 feels about right to hit kickers, you can built your own speed when you approach them.

I do like the new board, but there is an issue with the board. Since its so wide it has a lot of side cut and landing as much as they are soft, they are not forgiving. You need to all the landing by yourself, the board will not aid you at all. So I have to get used to this, tomorrow I am going to try to see if adding the fins will help this or not. I do not want to loose the ability to easily switch in the water into 180's.

And about the 720's , I am not sure I will ever get them. Tomorrow I am going to try 360's and see if I can land them.
