Summary:
Really good for getting into freestyle and for older school carving manoeuvres. One of the fastest, most comfortable freestyle boards in a straight line.

The Clones say:

“Really good for old-school carving manoeuvres and kept its speed up well through the turns”

“The domed deck makes it a lot more comfortable for the freerode side of things. It’s really nice on the ankles and the footpads are also comfy”

“Pops nicely but doesn’t rotate quite as rapidly as some of the others in slides”

“Very fast and more of a carving board than the others. Also handles the chop well”

“Feels a bit smaller than the other boards, apart from the Tabou”

Feels small, with too much fin area for new-school freestyle. Needs a cut-down fin for proper freestyle moves”

“Nose rocker makes it nice in the chop”
