Description

The Honey AMP 6 is a handcrafted cruiser style board designed to be used on campus, the streets, and on the hills. With a huge wheelbase for its size, just enough concave, and a little flex this board will have you cruising, carving and slashing in no time!

Throw on some 180mm Paris V2s and some 70mm Orangatang 4President Wheels and have the time of your life shredding the boardwalk or foothills.

Honey's Description

Named after one of Mike's favorite snowboards, The Burton Amp (alpine/carving board) of the early 90's.

The Amp 6 is designed for carving. Concave, Camber, and wheel cutouts allow you to crank those deep carves without wheelbite. Carve it, cruise it, slide it, The Amp 6 has been one of our best sellers for years.

Probably Good For Actual Hills

What I mean is that to me, a board with this length of wheelbase is best suited for going fast, where it would help with stability, and you are not going to be turning that sharp anyway, not at high speed. I guess my point is that is you are planning on just riding down sidewalks, then you would do better with something with a shorter wheelbase so you can make sharp turns easily. I'm not knocking the board itself because it is what it is, but just sort of warning people that you may want to take this factor into consideration when deciding on a purchase. I used to ride some steep hills when I lived in California, so I think I let that cloud my thinking, that, and also watching too many YouTube videos of people going really fast down hills. Now, if I want to give an explanation for the 4 stars rather than 5, I would point at what seems to me to be spray-on grip surface on the top of the deck. I am already trying to figure out a way to scrape it off. I get the idea of making the top and the bottom match by using two slices from the same veneer block, but you could show it by doing some creative piecing together of laser cut grip tape. I bought this deck from Muirskate before setting up an account by ordering as a guest, in case anyone wonders why it does not say "verified buyer" on the review.
