didn’t scout a small line appropriately and I thought I was ollieing onto another pillow/something soft and landed directly onto a pretty jagged boulder.  got tossed but landed into some soft stuff, glad I was riding with friends and not alone, could’ve been a lot worse!  lesson learned, oof.  feeling the board flex that far underfoot was wild

There's a time and a place for all of that nose. And when you do get to ride a mega nose on the right conditions it is like nothing else. But yes, it is noticeable.

Also, it's not like EL is made up of people looking for a single board to do it all.

there is literally no time that you need as much nose as a gentemstick or dupraz has, its juts a stupid cosmetic "surf" style thing. they ride so fucking weird I can't believe anyone buys into it or likes it.

A profile pic on a table will be more than enough. Thanks for the answer.

Well, that's certainly your opinion, for what that's worth.

No way.

Or yes, you do not NEED all the nose..... there's a lot of things people dont truly need.... but those big nose boards feel very different. and frankly, they're a blast.

Dupraz, Cheetah, Gentems, some of the Nitro Q's, you could probably lump in the older Fish and maybe stuff like Dump Truck... killer boards that feel very special.

I would love to ride a Gentem in Japan or Baldface.

If we only rode what we “need,” there’d be a whole lot less variety.

I’m riding this 195 today and it’s FUCKING SICK. Definitely a novelty board, but rides really well and is super fun.

Again, for the record, the squash is not like one of those huge nose dupraz style boards... since that’s what sparked this.

@spenser, let's all be real, that cannon is straight FASHUN, so I welcome you to the International Fashun-Ballers Club

also, one could argue with that same logic that none of us need anything more than a unicycle, but hell bicycles, tricycles, motorcycles, cars, vans, trucks, trains all exist.  Catch me on that uni making elevation gains with a board strapped to my back.  The board also has no material outside the contact points because that's all superfluous anyways

zero percent of the "fun" is attributable to the pointless, idiotically long nose.

if i am wrong, explain how please (anyone can try to answer, but you all will be wrong)
