Yeah, looks tops for that. Wouldn’t take it in the bowl.
i took it in a bowl a few years ago. bad move. felt ok dropping in, but went for a grind and the tail flexed, board squirreled and nearly threw me into the flats. it's for the streets, not transition.

Re: skateboarding ...

not so great for transition, a bit too much flex, you don't want that. great for hot mix asphalt. it's a cruiser, but can kinda bomb hills with a bit of speed, carves real nice. let's call it the all rounder. the hypto-krypto of skateboards.

Re: skateboarding ...

Broken bones are a part of the deal. It’s bound to happen sooner or later. I’ve broken a wrist, thumb, had concussion, lost bark more times than I can remember, witnessed shoulder and elbow dislocations. Pretty much every skatepark sooner or later will have some poor cûnt die there. Greenhills had a...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

What’s the consensus on the best legrope for up to DOH for build quality and least likely to snap? I’ve tried all the generic brands, and they’ll all snap in given situations. Is there some product or tech out there that’s substantially better, more dependable, less likely to snap? As they all seem...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I use one of those O&E “world’s strongest legrope” on my gun. I surf 8-10ft max. Hasn’t broken yet in some pretty powerful waves. Not sure you’ll find consensus though. These? https://www.oceanearthstore.com/surfboard-leashes/premium-one-xt-leash-6ft/ If so, snapped the exact one in 6-8 foot beach ...
