Chuck, I've been riding your classic style longboard for about five years now and I just gotta say it is and has been my favorite board to ride since I got it. It is the most durable board as it has taken a brutal beating by me and everything I've smashed into and it's still going strong (though I broke the original trucks a long time ago). I just recently started riding bowls with this 47 inch board and it's a great time wherever I go. Thanks for the great board and keep up the good work!
