i went the opposite direction with this and got a super long Never Summer Swift that comes up almost to my collarbone when you stand it on end...it's got paris trucks and big soft wheels, plus just about the gnarliest flex ive ever felt. it's so fucking fun for cruising and making wide carving turns, it just cant cut on a dime or slide like a short board
but ive had S9's for years and im tired of them, theyre all starting to feel kinda the same.
oh, and other guy, if you want to get good at bombing hills in an environment that's more controlled, go hit up a parking garage
