This new board from Koastal has been on our minds for a while. Its a nice big cruiser board but handles like a shorter longboard. With Revenge Trucks this board carves like a dream and you can really dig into the turns. The core is 12 ply plus the addition of the wood stringer top sheet consisting of Mahogany, Aspen, and Purple Heart. With its longer wheel base you will have some flex but not an extreme flex. The flex gives the board a nice comfortable ride and basically acts like shocks in a car when going over bumps and cracks it helps smooth the ride out. Also with the flex you can really pump the board up and down the street which is a nice feature for such a long board.
