its a decent board, its a bit like the catalyst, but wider heavier and griptape. i personally liked it, what else have you ridden or is this your first board? in my oponion its an all around a decent board
The vinyl is a fun skate to ride especially if you like a heavier skate that rides high on the water. I would have to disagree that it is bomb proof, in fact I think it is probably the most delicate board I have owned. It is foam inside (Thus the amazing boyancy factor) and the edge blows apart very easily if it contacts a rail head on. I had one of mine split and had a buddy who had a similar blow out.....very fragile.
