Just a heads up if you have one, don't jump with it strapless. Mine has about 8 sessions on it and one strap insert is actually trying to push through the bottom of the board, and it's delaming in the same spot (front foot impact area). I'm on the 4'10" and it's super thin so that may have been a factor. I bought this board because it was a really good deal, although I would have loved to have the regular stronger version. I kinda figured since the promo product video shows guys boosting 30 foot strapless airs, the board could handle. Oh well, live and learn. Not bothering with a warranty claim, I don't want to deal with all the hassle as the shop is on the mainland east coast and I'm in Hawaii...donating the board to someone who can use it and moving on to the next board, thinking probably a Vader.

I have the 2015 Skater Sport M and been jumping and landing it strapless quite a lot. No damage yet (knocking the wood), only dents on the front foot heels, which I like.

But yeah, it's a really nice board, thin and planes really early for its size and has very good speed and pop for tricks!

I wish I could afford the carbon version but over a grand for a 4ft. surfboard is just insane to me. That board is really sick though, I've never had as much success with strapless jumping on any other board. OMG keep your eyes peeled for a small bump on the bottom, like a reverse ding. That was my footstrap insert pushing through the board. When pushing on the deck on that spot it would creak and I could feel the delamination. If I see a standard build skater pop up second hand I will pick it up.
