Is This Normal?
I bought this LF Watson Hybrid last year and started hitting rails with it late last year and was wondering if this is normal for this board. My son rides a LF Deluxe at the same cable park and his board has no where near the amount of slider material on the bottom of his board, almost none(and he hits a lot more rails and rides way more then I do)

Im asking because I am trying to get a 360 down on one of the rails and I stick half way through the spin. I am 6'2" and weigh 215 dry, my life jacket asborbs alot of water and so I would say it adds another 20lbs atleast and the board is a 143. Is this caused by my size?

My Watson hybrid looks the same and Im only 160lbs.

I would be more worried about that sponge of a life jacket you are wearing :)

This is completely normal. In fact, it's good. What you're seeing there is the white plastic material from the rail. The grind base on your Watson is so good that it's actually harder than the rail, so the rail is rubbing off on the board and not vice versa. This is the best case scenario! Keep shredding that **** and don't worry about it!

Are you wetting down the rails before you ride them. That might be why you stick to them.

Whoa bro, easy with the attitude!

Where in your 360 do you get stuck Dennis?

That second picture you took with the LF logo is pretty sweet!

I can 180 both directions on two of the sliders but when I try to complete the rotation for the 360 my board sticks a little. I am attempting a backside 360 because the slider is on my toe side and I have to edge hard to get to it so it seems my momentum is alreay going that way. I am going to the park today and am planning on setting up a video camera so I can see if it is a technique issue.

I'd say to try a front 3 first. Toe back 3s are the hardest rotation to do
