Surprising in the best of ways

I was in need of a new compact freeride board that could act as an occasional ride around town. I'm about 5'6 so a lot of boards are too big for me to have any fun with, but this board has proven to be perfect for fast freeride and slide jams. It's super lightweight, and the beefy kicktail makes it an awesome street slasher with some TKP trucks. The concave is substantial, but not obnoxious, and locks you right in. I'm always weary of directional topmount kicktail boards, but this board is quickly becoming my favorite freeride deck so far. I could personally go for shaving another inch off in length, but I'm not too bent up about it

No BS, That's the Moonsine mantra. Or at least that's what it seems like. I purchased this deck from my local shop, and it has become my dedicated parking garage shredder. Its a small directional longboard, which is nice for ripping around town or hills alike. Long decks are awesome, but there should be something to be said about using the whole deck rather than just parts of it. It feels great to really use a deck, and you can really use everything this has. I've got some 180mm trucks and some 73mm wheels, and there isn't wheel bite. You'll run into trouble at low speeds with an 80mm wheel though. Overall, this thing feels like a Mini Cooper racing through LA in the Italian Job. No problem with speed, nimble, stable, and reliable. Might even survive a crash with a helicopter, but I'm not sure I'd go try it.
