I recently interviewed my buddy Jimmy about his John Barnet board. He has been riding it for a while and has just been shredding everything. Here is what he had to say about the board!
1. Set up?
stock bushings, bones reds, otang
2. How is it for
Great for freeride. It has micro
drops that act as very comfortable pockets to whip around slides. Also, the edge
of the pockets kinda act as gas
pedals, making it easier to hold out big standies. I haven't really done
any dh, but tuck wise, I can fit my back foot right into the back pocket corner which feels really
3. How is the
board and kicks for freestyle?
board's kicks are great. It is big enough to do shuvits, bigspins, manuals, no
complys, and whatever you fancy. The board itself is a little heavy but you get
used to it very fast once you skate it for a bit. The kicks have a sharp upturn
at the end which is good for locking in manuals but a bit weird to get use
4. Tell us abut the concave/drops,
The micro drop is super comfortable. It locks in both of
your feet so well. The
board has medium concave and a slight w concave in the middle. I'm rocking vicious griptape which just
locks me in even more
5. Favourite thing
about the board?
My favourite thing
about this board is that it is overall a great all
around board. I can have a freeride sesh and freestyle
sesh in the same day without switching boards or tweaking my set up too
There it is! A
quick but detailed review of the John Barnet Longboard! I have seen Jimmy ride
this board a lot and he busts out shuvits while
freeriding down hills. This board is definitely
