With its centered stance and twin shape, your relationship with this park ride is sure to be more than a fleeting romance. The medium flex and snappy carbon inserts are complemented by the dual-progressive sidecut, and make this one board you’ll want to keep around.

Tester feedback:

“So far, this is one of my favorite boards. It felt so comfortable under my feet. Smooth turns and easy to press.”

“Super fun! Manages to be buttery and fun, but stiff enough for jumps. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!”

Available sizes: 138, 142, 146, 149, 153
