Guys,

I am thinking of buying one of the take off flying carpets instead of a longboard so it is easier to transport, does anyone have one of these boards, just wondering how they ride ?

cheers

I had one of these boards for about a year. Very floaty (due to being epoxy), nice early entry into waves and rode great with fcs g5 fins. Slightly over priced boards though in my opinion!

hope this has answered your questions.

The epoxy is very durable, the board I had when I looked at it closely had next to no pressures in the deck. Overall great board, very light too.
