    Hej!
    Jag äger en Twin för tillfället och är hur nöjd som helst, men mycket vill ha mer och jag är sugen på en Buddy. Tänkte testa något kortare bräda för lite mer city-åkning. Men jag har lite funderingar kring den. Jag har testat en polares bräda som är väldigt flexig och väldigt enkel att pumpa med.
    Hur är Buddyn när det kommer till pumpning, tänker på att den är kort och stiff, det kanske inte spelar någon roll?

    mvh Johan

      Hej Johan!
      Actually, pumping has as much to do with trucks/bushings as flex in the board, and this board is great to pump with using the right truck/bushing setup for you, so you should be fine.
      Good Luck!

    Hejsan. Tänkte köpa en bräda att ha och åka med inne i stan och ibland lite längre sträckor. Är en nybörjare och har endast tänkte åka “vanligt”. Passar denna bra för mig eller?

      Hejsan Kent!
      This is a great board in cities and you will probably like it if you are used to “regular” skateboards.
      For beginners and commuting, The Lowrider will probably be a better choice.
      Good Luck!

    Hi!
    I wonder how this board would do with 180mm trucks? I have a set just laying around and that board looks really dope as a play-around-allround-board!

    hi i was wondering which of your boards i should get for a good varity on Carving and sliding through the city, i want a good board that flex alot . but at the same time i know that sliding is easier with a hard board. i currently own a kahalani EVA, which i use for downhill mostly, but i carve alot aswell :) so i think i already is a good enuoght longboarder to slide, carve and do whatever on whichever flex. but i really like flexy boards, and as i said my EVA is already very stiff!

    So to get to the point, what board would you say would be enought flexy for me? I wiegh in on about 75-80kg :)

      Hi Mikael!
      For carving and sliding through the city with a flexy board we would reccommend the Platypus for you with the Hammer 2014 as a runner up.
      Good luck, hope this helps!

    Is it still possible to buy this board? I had it since 2012, and just lost it.
