strap in and haul ass. i'll notice the difference and it might take me a run or two to get comfortable with it but it's not going to throw me off my game if i try a new board.

Once I had to send a jacket away for warranty and one of the guys in the shop who was sponsored let me borrow one of his, after mine came back he just let me keep the one I borrowed.

I would say it depends on how different the boards are. If they're for different styles (different length, width, flex), it's going to be harder than switching between two that are for park. That being said, I got a new setup this year (for park) that is a LOT different than my old park board and it took me about three hours before I really felt comfortable on it. Then, by the end of the day I felt more comfortable on the new one than I ever did on the old one.

Strap in and haul ass for regular boards. RC took a few days to get used to though.

as my name would suggest, i strap in and haul ass. even if i eat shit learning the boards intricacies i just get up and continue hauling ass. for some reason i enjoy a good hard fall every now and then, its exhilarating
