alright! some action in the skate department instead of the surf department. Yea the gravity longboards are nice stuff. Much more soulful than Sector Nine I think. The only super longboards in the vicinity of 72" I've seen are the Jam models on this website. I think most people looking at this section of the bulletin board probably skate at least a few times a week.
Am I right?

Orange County, CA. Chiming in.

I don't buy commerical decks but I'm not really into lighter weight boards. Here's a vlam I made for strictly cruising.

No problem with excessive flex. I'm 175 and my buddy is over 200 with no detrimental flex. I made it thick (.75 in) so that it would stay fairly flat and stable. For a cruise deck meant for cross stepping I did not want any flex. Also the v-lam construction is suppose to reduce the amount of bend. Something about the alternating materials, grain direction and gluelines is suppose to be stiffer that a homogeneous material. Weight is not much of a problem with a cruiser so you can make it thicker.
