sector nine are...ok. the boards that is. there trucks, wheels and bearings tend to be a little less quality. the board i am riding most is the Landyachtz Wedge Flex with Randal 180's and some coned out kryptos. the turned up nose gives you improved carving, very improved. and the R-180s are very carvy but very stable. krypto wheels are grippy, slidy and fast. dont bomb on them to much in hot weather. i ahve seen some kryptos melt. crazy shit. spread the longboard stoke! and if your from Canada, support local and buy Landyachtz. or Rayne or Redneck or Godspeed. or Skull Skates.
