Academy Team 2016 - 2015 Review by The Good Ride

The Academy Team is a decent board that we would like to spend more time on. To us the 156 felt a little smaller for our specs.  The 159 might be a better call. We were told it had a set back but it appears to have a centered stance in the specs.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective. 

How This Review Happened: We had a couple of laps at a frantic manic demo day.

Conditions: Very good
Riders: James, Peter, Jimbo, Stephen, Ginger, Kyle, Mary
