Reviewed: 32" Slalom Buttons by Gravity Boards

Gravity SkateBoards make some really nice long boards. after messing around for several months on the GS32 (Giant Slalom) model, i can say that i am thoroughly satisfied with this purchase.
Ride: the ride is smooth and on my 66mm 78a amber soft wheels, the larger bumps are absorbed while the grip is super tight. it also comes with abec 5 bearings which make the smooth ride even quicker and effortless. going down a hill is much less wobbly even at higher speeds because of the Randal R-II 150mm trucks. they sit tight at high speeds and turn on hard leans. the angled trucks do not need risers but still allows me to lean into the bigger turns. the hardwood maple body has a slight flex and some concavity for better turns. it's short, which makes it more firm than most long boards but it's got the feel of a surf board. the over all feeling is carving waves on concrete, awesome.
Looks: at 32 inches, this is not much larger than a short board, but definitely runs like a long. there's no kick tail but you can still manage to step it up with the little raised end. i would like to take this portable board with me everywhere i go, especially with the really cool graphics on the underside. i prefer the twin palm trees over the "buttons" model, because it reminds me of the nice beaches with Oahu's Diamond Head in the back ground. the topside has a strip that reveals "Gravity Skateboards" right in the center where the grip tape is cut out. the shape is wide and with wheel cut outs at the front and back to avoid wheel burns. overall, this is the best looking board i own and being so portable i also use it the most.
