The board that is.....
This year I've been struggling a bit with my ride. I've always loved the Faction board, but I've never ridden one with the stock fins. I always put the small Marius fins on it. CWB changed up the bolt spacing this year and went to a 2 bolt fin for some more strength. Awesome, except that I couldn't transfer my small fins to the new board (You can still get the small Marius fins I just haven't gotten around to getting the new ones). So I've been going back and forth between this years 144 with stock fins and last years 138 with the small fins. I actually kinda like the smaller board better, though I feel like a 140 would be the perfect fit for me. So I was torn about what to do.
We happened to have a Vibe sitting in our storage unit and I decided to give it a try. Man... What a fun board. Lightning fast, loose and really poppy. I guess it's considered a flex board, though it's not a noodle like the Roam's that I'd ridden in the past. It has a really nice snap to it.
Anyway... Just tossing this out there. If you thought this board was a park only board, give it a try. Don't overlook it in the lineup. I'm pretty sure I found my new ride for the year. Pumped.
