I love the channels on my liquid force DLX. I'll ride a normal freestyle board again. The channels make it track teally good when you're edging, but flatten the board and it's. Perfect for landing blind, because you can easily slide the last way around without crashing.
And landings are so soft and smooth. Way more control in the landings...
Thanks for you post. I noticed in your wakestyle board you spoke about 'accelerator channels' and wonder what they were and how they worked?
