    My buddy's been riding one for like 3 or 4 years. its a 7'2" epoxy and he likes it very much, but he's a little guy, only like 138 lbs or something. Its taken a beating and held up pretty good. But a few years of use, its got quite a few pressure dings on the deck. You can see the stringer in the middle raised up a bit. Pretty decent I suppose. I'll ask him more about it if you want.

    They are pretty crappy boards. I bought an epoxy becuase it was a good price and snapped it in half the very first time I took it out. Lukily I the shop I bought it from gave me my money back because I came back in the the same day I bought the board, but I would avoid them if you could.

    I picked one up once... sold it 2 weeks later. For being so crappy, they're rather heavy too. It's Chinese made garbage whose main outlet for selling new boards is eBay. That should tell you something right there.
