Between the concave and vicious grip, tape, your feet are staying right on the board. The board is extremely stiff, no flex what so ever. Set up, Rey hangers, reyvolver baseplates with blood orange bushings. I mostly cruise/freeride. For crusing NYC, I use These 69.5 MM 80A. for freeride, I use bustin swifts 70MM 82A. I've done some light downhill with the board. Coming from a heavier board, it does take time to adjust to it, but after that it's great.
