I was looking for a solid board for getting into freestyling with a bit of dancing and came across the Judo. After using it multiple times for hours on different sessions it's safe to say I love the thing. I am about 5'3" and 135 - 140lb and personally I feel the dimensions of the board fits just right. The board for me does not flex much at all given my weight and honestly it's what I wanted. Paired with the Caliber II's and the Flow's you can't go wrong. I've taken it on long cruises with some low key and shorter steeper hills to push how fast I could go. While I did experience speed wobbles it wasn't anything one couldn't control or handle. Also with me just getting into freestyling, it has taken it's share bumps and falls; and it can definitely take it. That being said it's easy to pop, carve, and really is an enjoyable ride.
