theyre really good, great decks but the trucks are new and in my oppinion not perfected yet. But they are more available than most makes in australia. if you get the trucks id suggest the infintys as the vertigoes (the ones with weight saving holes) currently have a tendancy to bend and break.

Decks are great, will never delam or snap, some people say they can go a little soggy after a few years but over all theyre a great deck. id suggest going a ply or two thicker than suggested and then shavign it down as i dont like the shape of them personally.

I would deffo buy the trampa deck :D
I love my 15 ply short one. Im 16 and not short but it still gives me loads of pop and its also pretty stable at high speeds aswell :D

The trampa trucks arnt as good tho, my mate has bent a few D:

I would say Trampa trucks are much better than MBS ones though. So much more stable and the attention to detail is amazing. As Jasper suggested go with infinity, but have vertigo hangars. Because Trampa are so amazing you can mix and match parts so don't worry. It depends on your riding style as well, unless you're ganna hit big jumps where a lot of pressure could fall onto a single truck when things go wrong the chances of a breakage is no different to any other truck.

To answer your actual question, I would strongly recommend that deck. They are so so beastly, don't bother calling it a board, it's more of a steed!

I'd suggest going for Infinty Hangers and Vertigo Baseplates if you prefer to mix em up. I have a full trampa setup (except for the Mak tires), 17Ply long, infinities, Superstars, trampa ratchets. Heavy setup, but it gives you confidence and the pop a whole lot.

No deck is the best. It all depends what you want out of it. Tramps mbs etc are all great quality.

I ride Trampa vertigo trucks and, have no complaints. I have used them for some fairly challenging freeride. I dont think bending / breaking them is going to be a concern for your average rider. These instances seem to be involved with bad landings on big air.

Note the Trampa hanger is a direct copy of the Scrub boost. Infinty / vertigo is virtually the same hanger as on the boost / boost lite . The only marginal difference is the shape of the weight saving cut out.

Yep I've bent a few sets but only ever on bad landings on big air!
