This board is great for more than the park. Smaller/lighter ladies looking for an all-around board that you can start on and not outgrow in your first season, this is definitely the board for you! It's got a very smooth ride, turns easily, floats well in powder, and holds an edge even in hardpacked or icy conditions. When I got this board I was a very timid rider because I never felt sure of how my previous board would respond to me. Now I'm becoming a more confident and aggressive rider with each day I spend on this board. You can get a much cheaper beginner board, but this one is well worth the extra money.
I got this leash after losing my other double handled leash at the dog park. The webbing on this one is thinner than most leads and easier for me to hold onto when my dog pulls, while still just as strong as the other leads. I LOVE the ability to make the lead shorter or longer using the buckle at the top. It's very solid and does not slip, I can attach Rusty to my waist, or shorten up the leash in places where I'd like him closer to me. The padding on the main loop is nice and dries pretty quickly. The carabiner makes it easy to hook the leash onto his collar and the locking feature and traffic loop are great for situations where I need a lot of control.
This thing still looks almost new after 6 months of hard use. The only drawback is that I wish it was a little longer, which would make it more useful when the leash is around your waist.
