Trevor Preston reviews the new 2012 topmount deck from Rayne, the Vandal. Suited for every situation, the Vandal is one of the most adept and versatile boards out there.
WB: 25.75 – 27.25
Note from Trevor:
Whaddup guys, I think I could’ve been a little more clear on my explanation of the relationship between board width, leverage and wobbles. Here’s what I was trying to say: Wobbles are usually caused by putting too much force on your back truck, which causes your board to jerk suddenly, which you then try to correct and overcorrect, starting the vicious cycle of automatic subconscious overcorrections that are wobbles. By narrowing the back of the board you have less leverage and therefore less force transferred to your back truck, so your chances of getting wobbles is reduced.
