"Third talked to FM and clarified some information that is out there. Changing the modes on OW+ does not change the nose level as it did in V1...."
I did not know or hear this before but this explains a lot :(:(
@groovyruvy We will get injured indeed, when falling. But I'd add that those injuries heal faster thanks to us riding the OW (when we're not falling). The riding keeps our bodies younger in a very peculiar way that few other boards or even sports can. It's one of the benefits of riding the OW that is not talked about much yet but that is certainly there.
I know this may sound weird: OW-ing keeps our bodies younger, but what is the deal if it also causes us to get hurt?
No-brainer to me (assuming injuries remain within reason)..
