    Default Which kebbek board?

    It's like this that ive got a deal with kebbek, I can get their boards a little cheaper.

    So now I wonder what board should I choose?

    Ive been looking at the flushcut and the cafton.

    The flushcut looks really nice, bot I dont like the concave form of the board. The caften too looks really good but it's not a drop through. Maybe the comishin?

    Atm I have no idea of which board I want. Whats the main differences between these boards, and which do you recomend and why?

    The setup im going to use is, Randall DH baseplates, RII 180mm trucks, gummbals 76mm.

    Peace

    Commishin. The only problem with that is that it is only cut for Crails I think. Crails have some really weird baseplates so the drop-thru cutouts will not fit any other trucks.

    No the commishin is flushed for randal dh/force or crail. I'd go with commishin considering you like the caften but want it to be drop through.

    Hmm, when I look at the comishin at their webpage it says:

    Pictured: Randal drop
    Option for all DH trucks avible



    And why the cmoishin, what makes it better then the other boards like the cafton and flusshcut?

    It's not better I just thought you would like it most because you like the concave of the caften but want it to be drop through like the flushcut=the commishin. The reason flushcut is better is because it is stronger.

    Okey, yeah the comishin looks good, great that u can get it for randall dh plates.

    So what differens is there between the flushcut and the comishin, which board do you prefer and why?

    Well for one thing the flush has a small platform (it's awsome if you have a tight compact tuck) and the comm has a good size platform. Another difference is that the com has an upturned nose making for quicker stearing in the front where as the flush is nuetral on both sides.

    I love my Commishin but you can't set it up as carvy and it's harder to initiate a slide than other decks. If you want to use it for DH and some light commuting then I recommend it. Otherwise, a Caften might be a better choice for you, a friend of mine set up his Caften with grizzlies and it carves like a dream and bombs hills real well.

    Ive got a Flushcut and it Rocks. Crails turn well without having to worry about the nose changing the geometry. Just put on softer bushings, you can ride it nice and loose and tighten them up for bombing.
    Plus you dont have to worry about which is the front of the board. Its nice when a skateboard performs the same forwards and backwards.

    Hey man, tell us about your special deal with Kebbek.
    Dont eat lead paint.

    i'm trying to figure out how you don't know a whole lot about the Kebbek boards, but can get them "cheaper" than the rest of us.

    My vote is the CaftEn

    I'd recommend the caften. It's still plenty low and gives you more truck options.
