Hey guys just bought this board, just wondering if it’s as good, strong and durable as Ride says it is?

I love the new ride kink wide. Comming from riding a flow board last year the ride kink has got it all. I ride alot of trails and park and this board is great for both. With the flex rating of a 5 it is perfect for my type of riding. Also the fact I ride a 156 it has a good look, it is all around a good board.
