Read the Review Transcript: What's up? Leo here. Just got off the 2013 Forum Manual in a 153. This board is going to a 4 out of 5 stars for me. This is just the entry level board. It doesn't cost too much. It's under $400 dollars. $350 actually. Just a fun freestyle deck it's nice and buttery. I give it about a 3 flex on the 10 scale. You can actually go a few cm shorter on the board. This is a 153, I normally ride a 158 and this still handles fine on the groomers. It has a lively feel underfoot so if you're into the hitting rails you're going to get that locked in feeling that you like. Again this gets a 4 out of 5 from anywhere from a beginner and up freestyle rider can ride this board.
