Not sure about the Ace but the Jamie is a great allround board. Bit more forgiving than the hardcore freestyle weapons yet still very capable to do all the advanced stuff including unhooked.

Its a tricky balance as many of the freeride boards are actually too soft to really load up. The Jamie however can and offers a good balance for riders with a diverse riding style.

Hope it helps, at least no commercial interests here.

Did you remove the protective lead layer under the board?

both are bluish in colour...which makes them hard to see in the ocean...why would they purposely make them hard to find when you fall off your board.I have lost a board for this reason.I want to buy one of the 2 but now im worried i might lose it...Any ideas why they would make boards that are hard to find???

Totally agree. That puts me off too.
If I had an option of 2 boards that were the same, but one was bright orange, rather than perfect sea camo colours, I'd go bright orange any day!
