MBS board chooser


I'm looking for a mountainboard and I've seen this chart. Actually MBS Core 94 seems amazing for kiting according to the chart. Ofcourse MBS Pro 90 better than but it is also expensive . Do you agree with the information is written on chart. is MBS Core 94 enought for intermediate kiting, upwind, small jumps,

Second question, what do you think channel trucks, are they realy useful and necessary for kiting.

Channel trucks are great for kiting. More stable, less prone to wobble and less likely to bend. But they are heavier which is why some prefer skate trucks and hollow trucks if they are doing board-offs.

my 2 cents still goes to the old core 90. Especially if you ever want to get into tricks. Unless you are a heavyweight it will do trick. I like the lightweight skate trucks, but others will say otherwise. It's all personal preference, and once you ride yours long enough and try to ride someone else's you'll find you've adapted to your environment.
