if your a carver at heart or just like poping tricks left and right, then this is the board for you. you wont haft to worry about wheel bite because the wide cut outs. the drop through feature is excellent for a little bit of bombing but it not the best for that type of riding because the board is flexy. i weigh 135 lb. and i get about 2 in of flex. I have had friends weighing more than 200+ lb. ride it with no problem but they didnt jump up and down on it to see how far it went down. Arbor is known for its eco-friendly products including this board which features recycled glass grip (it wears away after a couple months), and its bamboo deck. one of the cons about this board is there isnt much of a tail so poping the board up takes some getting used to, especailly when you suddenly stop from stepping on the wheel.
