Yeah I noticed that the other day as well, funny thing is that is only the MK2, you don't see the first gen one anywhere.

I only sold mine, cause I wanted a board that would work kiting as well as at the cable park, to have 1 board, I don't like having too many options. Otherwise I'd still have it, I liked this board so much, I even considered buying a second deck as a spare.

That's because Flexifoil had a 50% sellout for a few days and people try to earn money on it.

I asked a seller why he was selling his mk2, and he said that it was because you lose the warranty if it breaks because of boots. That's reassuring.

These boards aren't meant to be used with boots. I don't know about breaking, but I know flexifoil says that it will delam. Which if it does cause of the use of boots, you aren't covered.

I wonder if with baseless boots you could ride them, I wonder if without the base of the boot is not as stiff, allowing the board to flex, thus not delaminating it. :naughty:

Its the increased uplift force on the bolts more than the flex change underfoot that killed my board.
