Man, I hated that Skim Skate. Sssssssslllloooooowwww. I bought the very first one right when it came out. Thank god the boys at the board shop were cool and let me return it. I bought it to replace my old (5'6" twin fin) Landlock, but I ended up back on the Landlock. I have since been through a Trick Boardz Surf Skate and a Phase 5 Icon. The P5 would be good if it was the Prop model. I got the Icon for a steal so I bought it. Too small for me though (6'0" 195). Now it's the wifes. This put me right back on the old Landlock. Fastest, most comfortable board I could find around here. I rode every "pop out" around and couldn't replace the Landlock. I just bought a Walzer that will hopefully be the ticket, but I have yet to ride it as I can't seem to get the planets to align. It seems that is what it's going to take to get out this year.
