I rode it once and liked it. Its a 41 so you may find it to be pretty small. However, the tip and tail are pretty wide so that kind of makes up for it. I bought the slide and I like it but I wouldn't mind trying something again with a wider tip/tail. <BR> <BR>As far as your feet are concerned I think its about as wide as any skate out there. Besides with 14's what do you even need a skate for?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I'm not sure what they are selling for but I think they are around 175.

You may want to look at this one too. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/Skates/getboard5.asp?ProductID=2165" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/Skates/getboard5.asp?ProductID=2165</a> <BR> <BR>I guess it all depends on what type of tricks you like to do. I think each model explains what style of riding it suits. <BR> <BR>I have been happy with mine. It is non concave (As all of the Kampus skates are) but it stays with my feet really well.

very cool. <BR> <BR>would you get the foam top or the super stick?

I hear the mutiny's are the widest/best for big feet.

I'm not sure what they are using for grip now. The super stick was basically coarse sand glued to the deck. When new it was really sticky but it wore off. Then I tried their old soft grip and it sucked. So, I peeled that off and just put skateboard griptape on it and it works like a charm. I haven't tried their new foam but it doesn't look too grippy. If I were to buy a new skate from them I would probably order it without grip and put griptape on myself.

Sean I tried a Mutiny, not sure which model but it didn't pop for crap. I couldn't get it to stay with my feet at all. It may have had to do with the lack of rocker it had. I would be interested to check out their other models though.
