I rock a loaded dervish and love it. I had a kracked skull, but i broke that after three months, and decided to upgrade to the dervish.
both boards were/are fun, but i personally like the feel of the dervish. it feels so much more stable than the kracked skull ever did.
pretty sure snapping the nose off the board broke it... but thats just me. I had the Randalls on it a some gumballs.
Don't get me wrong, the board was fun to play around on, but I had a good job over summer, and I dropped the extra cash on a dervish.
I did look into the BC eel, but they were sold out at the time, and I didn't feel like waiting around for a board. they did look sick, and I would've gotten one.
