• The product is frickin amazing and completely addictive. I knew this thing was going to be a blast but didn't quite realize just how much. I grew up skating and spent years surfing and now, in my forties, without these outlets, felt a bit of a void. OW has quickly filled that void. I have a feeling I''m in their target market...
• The control is more intuitive than I would have believed. Every time I go out, I get better and achieve more. The evolution of learning is so fluid and natural that I don't even notice it. When I first took this thing on the trails I couldn't get over certain obstacles without getting / jumping off the board (mainly root clusters) and just chalked it up to being technical impossibility. Now, I'm getting over and around the same spots without trouble. I take my OW on a local trail daily and love the feeling of earth surfing.
• This community is strong and very helpful. I've read just about every post here, soaking in as much info as I can and continue to keep up with the posts. The passion for the OW from those of you here is testament to an amazing product and a passion from it's users. The conversations about rides, experiences and mods here is part of what made me feel comfortable about my investment (take note FM)! I live in a spot (Asheville) that seems to have a lot of riders and though I haven't met any yet, look forward to riding with others.
So, thanks to FM for an amazing product and thanks also to this community for well...the community!
