So my “dream” and supposed first ever longboard is finally in my quiver. Set it up “beginner” style with Randall 150s, 72mm Freerides, venom barrels (probably the only non-beginner thing here), and reused my stock Nickel hardware bolts to mount the trucks and risers. Feels great, actually not that much flex, very lively. Most importantly- VERY light. Probably my lightest board after Penny. If I were to compare this to the rest of the boring market, I’d say its like a sexier Earthwing Superglider.
To avoid wheel bite, I’d say 3 thin risers will do the job perfectly.
Update: After rocking this guy for about 4 months now, still love this one as my daily driver. Since May, I strapped Bear 852s on this guy and it can now handle some hills with superb finesse and response. Being a lively and a featherweight deck, it really makes you practice having a lead foot to avoid squirreling out of control.
All in all, excellent cruiser/carver/commuter that sports a 3 year factory warranty.
