Default Wham!

FInally caught an edge Wednesday...after years edge-less...I thought I grew immune after all this time.
The new A-Frame demands attention and aggressive control...but at the end of the day with wobbly legs and...glazed eyes, we are prone to distraction and bad posture.
The Arbor board reminded me all that in an instant...WHAM!
Love my helmet. No damage done...beside a sore neck.

LOL! No man.....lol...
I love the board...but as I wrote you have to ride it... if you just stand on it..like when you're tired and thinking..."hmm is this my last one or II have legs for another...WHAM!"
no pain besides a sore neck the next day..just a reminder that experience is not an excuse to ride sloppy

It's very forgiving and precise, but it's also a bit longer (158 from 155) than the previous one, and stiffer. Has a very surfy feeling, it's setback so demands a longer turn radius. Haven't tried in really tight anything, but handles the steeps really well, again ,until you have legs to ride well on it.
Very stable at speed...the base is delicate..watch for those rocks...
other than that..I absolutely love it.

Exactly
Just a good old reminder.."respect your board"
Besides..that's what you pay for getting another cambered board..in a rocker-camber world...
