    Default If you own a BC Moray...

    i currently ride a S9 Super Shaka and im looking to upgrade to a better board for free riding. i really like the shape and construction of the BC Moray, but since i have not be able to ride one i dont know much about it other than the little bit the BC website explains. So! my question for you is, what are the pros and cons of this board? would you recommend it? any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    My friend has one and I like it a lot. Its light and is pretty fun for freeriding. But If you're tall or have a wide stance you might feel a bit cramped.

    It doesn't have too much flex but it is still kinda there. I don't know what kinda flex he has on his board though.

    I know its an old thread buuuut if you haven't gotten it or gotten a freeride board I highly recommend it. I love for almost anything. Im about 6 foot and its perfect as far as size, slides are fantastic, it even has enough room to dance and the kicktails help a lot for tricks. I love this board. Tell your friends

    The nose and tail is also a little bit bigger than the tan tien so it's pretty good for tricks since you do have more room. LOVE busting out slides. Get it if you have the money, and customize it with your own design if you like, they do it for free

    I have done a lot of research, and I am confident that the Moray is one of the best! (so confident that I spent $250 on it) Can't go wrong with this board!

    I agree with you: the guys at BC are super sweet. Very fast at email replies

    Don't be disappointed when your graphic comes in faded and blurry haha. The bc moray always felt saggy to me...tons of fun for low speed freeride, but saggy and dead

    I like the original graphic.

    You're the first person I've read about to not like the Moray, dude!

    I came up with most of the design elements like the diamond head backdrop and city scape, they just tagged on their logo and cleaned it up a bit haha.
