One of the most stylish riders ever. Good pick capita. And the ltd board looks fine. Sad this fucking thing is not camber.

Ya, had this deck been full camber I def would've added one a long time ago.

Though, one of my biggest quiver regrets to date was not grabbing the 1st year Merc. That topsheet was a thing of beauty imo. And from my understanding, was stiffer than the latest ones? Either way, got to try the 59 in its 2nd year of release, thing was pretty poppy. And a close buddy of mine has last year's 57 Merc, and though its camber is not very high, it's still quite poppy.

Love the specs of the Merc, overall and is def high on my list for twin-ish decks.

I picked one up today @Milo. Was quite fond of the graphics in person.

Does this mean it was presses with ie the outsiders/indoor camber profile???? Anyone knows??

On the website it appears to have the exact same specs as the normal one.

this Mercury camber profile change on the Longo board, could anticipate the next 2021 Mercury generation... it could make totally sense

Was comparing a 157 to a 159 (regular version) and was surprised how much meatier the 159 was (stiffer, thicker, heavier, what she said). Based on hand feel alone, I'd probably go with a 157 and now that the Longo is 157 with a longer camber profile, I'm super intrigued.

I put a comment question on their post so hopefully we get an answer on that.

What puzzles me more than the pop he gets is that it appears to be doing it at average speeds. 🤨

I think it's just all slowed down.

I dig the graphics, very bauhaus.  Also his style is insane, so fun to watch.  To me, he mixes elements of OG Terje with peak Nico with his own personal flair which is pretty well perfect in my eyes

I dunno, I don’t think most of his footage is slowed down. Doesn’t really matter anyway, it’s the difference between how he comes into the jump vs how huge he goes. It’s still disproportionate regardless of video playback speed. I don’t get it either. He must be super on point with using all potential energy available, all while looking extremely nonchalant.

Ya, I've rewinded so much of his sidehit edits and clips to try and analyze how he boosts so high, with such seemingly little effort. Settled with the combination of his apparent lightweight frame, and optimal popping ability ie. Nico-esque? And imo, he looks like he's going pretty fast in most of his clips esp in the SHE vids.

Aside from Nico, haven't seen anyone pop as high as Longo, esp in such short amount of time/space.
