First impressions

The first time I stepped on a Dancefloor I was thinking, wow, this is a really wide tail and a very wide board. It became a lot easier to do Peter pans with the extra space, and no-complies were much easier to do the moment I switched to this wide, spoon like tail.

How long have you been using it?

I’ve been on the Dancefloor for a little over a year, and have tried all flexes and lengths. They all have their benefits and flaws. I find the longer lengths are a lot better for dancing tricks, and overall stability in steps, but does lose a bit of mobility in freestyle tricks. The shorter lengths are a lot easier to flick and flip.

How often do you ride it? (What purpose, commuting, freestyling, freeriding, downhill etc)

For everything. I flew to Hong Kong for a trip early in 2018, and spent time in the mountains of Hong Kong downhilling and sliding, and also throughout West Kowloon doing freestyle and dancing (Shoutout to @SBDWLongboardshop in HK).

I spent a lot of time commuting place to place with the board as well. It worked great for everything, but was not the best for downhill considering the lack of concavity. Still – I only had to bring one board on this international trip and still had a great time doing it!

Best qualities

The tails are life changing

What can be improved?

The board is a big boy. The weight could definitely be improved. We’ve discussed using a foam core in newer models. One thing to consider is that if you make a board lighter, it becomes substantially less durable.

Why should I include it in my quiver (collection or arsenal)?

Its definitely a unique dancing · freestyle board.
