Wife said buy it, after a great crash.
I am completely new to board sports. I was not able to do any for years. Then the shop that I work at became a distributor for FM. I tried it and loved it immediately. Nose dived a couple of times and the first one into a cyclone fence headfirst.
My lovely wife of 30 years shot this video. I am 52 years old and have not smiled this big in years :)
My first couple of crashes were on the sidewalk in front of my house with my ten-year-old daughter sitting on the stoop and laughing at me every time I went into the concrete. Smiles all around.
That didn't look like the nosedives I've seen and experienced... Most nosedives I've seen happened at speeds >15mph (and are considerably more dangerous). Don't get too confident yet. Be careful!
But, yes, these things are amazing. I ride with permagrin.
"Party over" Not many woman could say those words with such a sweet voice. Lovely Indeed :-) @Magiccarpetrider
The fence crash was not a nose dive. I think that I was doing a pre-crash abandon board move. The subsequent crash later was at speed and I left an imprint of the bumper perfectly emblazoned onto the dirt. :)
Yes, me thinks that there would be some non-loving responses from the wife of many others. My wife really loves me after 30 years. She said later that she thought that I would give up after that crash. I am going strong still and loving it.
Yeah. I had most of my bad crashes the first month and thought I might quit. I'm nearly 3 years in now and I've owned 16 boards. 4 currently. @Magiccarpetrider
