I can attest to the fact that the Pointer is 100% quality. I rode Krooked's Zig Zagger decks for a couple of years. When I was looking for a replacement I coincidentally got in touch with Ned at the same time. Glad I did! The KREEP concave is unbeatable and the shape is perfect for park, street, curbs, banks, slalom, well, you get the idea. That's my testimonial.
