Drop Deck 43" - Black Wave (Natural)
- Product Review (submitted on October 3, 2013):
I was in Salt Lake City this summer for the Outdoor Retailer show, and I stumbled across this board. After fighting the temptation for a day, I gave in and bought it, and it was money well spent.
The board looks and rides awesome. It's a smooth ride, and it carves like a dream. You can really lay into the turns, and there's enough flex in the board to build your speed back with smaller, tighter carves. I've only hit small hills so far, so I can't speak for really bombing hills, but it handled well on the hills I've hit so far without any wobbles.
Finally, it is just a cool looking board. The artwork really makes it stand out, and every time I've ridden it, I've had random people, sometimes people who I could never imagine riding a skateboard, coming up to me and complementing me on the board.
I didn't do much research on the bearings, trucks and wheels, but it rides with speed and carves well, so I have no complaints.
I hadn't been riding all that much in the last few years, but this board has me back out again. I'm glad that I bought it!
