Are you talking about Feels Like Home? I just saw that one. It's pretty sick.
Also it's already been mentioned but I'll put forth another vote for That's It That's All. It's the Curt...

Sorry Kirkwood people, you're one of us now. The Village is definitely the worst part of Northstar. It's like a magnet for crowds of gapers. Hopefully, you guys don't get too developed... but...

You know the more I think about it, you're probably right. I brush and brillo pad my board, but I'm probably half-assing it and the wax I use doesn't really show up against my base in most sections...

I would guess 40, but like everyone else said, it's hard to tell with the lens/angle. Also, maybe it's just the angle and the lens again but that tranny looks really flat and short to me for a 40...
