Wayne, I got a chance to try out the new board this past Saturday. You're absolutely right, it's so much more dynamic than my old board! For sure it'll help transition me to the next level, can't wait to take it out later this afternoon. I need more time to get used to the balance etc, but so far I'm loving it! Also, checked my bank statement and the payment should have gone through. Let me know if you have any problems on your end. thanks again for an awesome board!
