I'm gonna get either the Vinyl or the Cat 2.0 to use as a slider board for the upcoming season

Mitch, yeah I know I wish they did though I like the design of that board my buddy has one that's never been ridden that I'm thinking about picking up.


I've heard the Vinyl is damn near bomb proof and I've seen people just beat the $h|t out of em so I'm pretty sure it'll hold up just fine as a slider 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.
