If you want to see the epitome of style and power watch Torsteins latest edit in Shredbots Untitled. My god, the guy still rips the bag, mainly concentrating on backcountry hits this time. After that realise that you're never going to be that good, but if just starting out, DC's Focus 19/20 is your best ticket to learning all basics, and then progressing into the next realm. Rocker to flat, a 3 degree catch free bevel, Stratus core with Beech stringers, Bi Ax glass and a True Base will load up this price point board to breaking point. The Focus will take you from Friday Flat beginner to Crackenback ruler without even batting an eyelid. This board has a softer flex that really allows you load up the tail, or press into any rail or box feature. Enjoy the Ride!
