From the top. This is Danny Hampson's pro model.



From the side, two metal mounting blocks bind the board together.



And some info, I talked directly to Horrell about it and asked questions. It IS true that hyperlite is trying to rip the design off, and Horrell said the patent has gone through, so he will be suing them. "And it will be fun" I asked him about ollies, he said that "everything just seems so much easier on it" He also said kickflips are a lot easier, and even did one during the best trick contest to prove it. I asked him about pretty much everything. He said the deck shouldn't flex so much that you smash your hands on tail grabs either.

As you can see the top board is strangely concaved, he said this helps too. It's also very flexible, like skateboard type flexible. The bottom deck was sturdy and nigh-unflexible.

Not ragging on the Integrity, but I guarantee you, this board will blow it out of the water.

PS: To anyone that was making fun of the graphics, they aren't as bad as the previews, it looks like mostly blank wood and you can barely see the little circles. Trust me, the graphics are sick.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely picking up one of these, liquid. Oh yeah, a piece of valuable info, they are shipping at the end of this month. And Brian Grubb looks just like me.

Oh. I see what you're talking about. It might be coming off, I don't know Thomas said this is the only one they had manufactured and have been riding, so I'm guessing a lot of people have been riding it for a while. I'm sure it would be ok. And yeah, Cassette makes EVA, but I don't know if they sell it by itself. If it's a big problem just get some Kampus foam and put it on there.

Yes that is me holding it. And it was.. about.. 9 lbs maybe. I said it felt kinda heavy and he said yeah it is, but the new ones that are shipping soon will be much lighter. That one is just a prototype he said.

I got to stand on it. That weird shape feels better than any concave or flat deck.

Damn straight. But if you wanna ride it first, Thomas said Ambush would have some to demo in a week or so.

They might. I didn't ask him. But it's worth a shot. I'm probably gonna drive up to Ambush when they get some in and demo one. If no one else has ridden one by then, I'll write up a review.
