That is hardly any weight. You need a lot more. At least a thousand more to get good push.

at 5'8" 135lbs the Factor PCX will be way too fast and big. She would love the Victoria Impulse because she is the exact same size as Taylor Dorey who designed it.

The wide tail of the Diamond makes it very loose. At only 115 lbs, she would do better on a pin tail.

I hope you guys know that most of these statues were put up starting in the 1920s when the resurgence in the KKK was taking place.

Confederate history belongs in museums and history classes....

I recommend getting a surf style or a skim style. A hybrid is too much of a compromise to me. They usually are nothing like a skimboard, and have too flat of rocker for what I want in a surf style.

This is on the regular Factor from 2016. It isn't carbon fiber so it doesn't have the same snappy feel, but the core is still super stiff compared to other brands so it has a ton of pop. You should...
