What type of riding is this product best for and why?

This deck is ideal for any type of riding. With subtle concave, a nice width, and a 3-stage rocker that is asymmetrical and the pop is moderate. It won’t do the work for you, but you can definitely get this board to cooperate.

Appearance-wise, does it look sweet?

Well the board is a map of Clermont, Florida. The green makes the graphic pop out nice with the actual wood incorporated as the streets.  But hey, lets not forget about the guy bustin’ the sweet raley. I heard that if you can do a raley, u must be pro.

How durable is it (and how hard did you trying to break it)?
Being a wood board, the durability of the ‘09 is superb. The most common problem for these is the retaining of water. Water logging will only happen if you don’t take your skate out of the boat.

What is different about it than other boards you’ve tried?

This board is a 40 but it has some width to it, so the weight is perfect. In my experience, it stays with you perfectly behind the boat.

General thoughts?
You can see team riders Chris Kallas and Keaton Bowlby riding this board as well as Danny and Aaron riding the longer sticks. This wood concave is definitely preferred by the team. The board also has holes to fit the Obscura nubs to shred rails with!
