Its a great board for the boat and I'd guess it will work well at cable too... Ive never heard of a board that isnt good for cable, but then, I've only been to the cable once. I think that one would work good with sliders and that kind of stuff since Melissa is a great rail rider and she must have made her board good for that as well.
Here in Ecuador is also hard to demo boards...
