ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

I am purchasing a loaded dancer deck from the Hopkin racing store and i am unsure whether it is worth its weight it skating gold. 
What are the Pros and Cons of owning a Dancer Board?

Pleas note: this board will not be used for bombing runs and i've already taken that into consideration.

so long as your reasonably light you can build your own without a press

buy a sheet of good quality ply (>12mm) and cut the shape out. Don't bother painting it, just grip it. Thrash that (which will happen to a dancer) and if you still like the idea of a dancer once that one's firewood, drop the cash on it.

Pros and cons of dancer

Pros

-you can dance (duh)
-more room for boardwalking
-normally has kicktails for shovits etc

Cons

-they're a b!tch to carry
-they feel dead to steer, you just keep leaning but dont go anywhere particularly fast

But yeah, build your own (save $350 odd bucks) to see if you like the idea, if you do, buy a 'proper' one
What the hell bro
these are the wickedest boards ever
if you seriously like board walking get this board... its so good
And i here Jezza makes a pretty fine dancer :p
got mine second hand the other day and LOVE IT!
doesn't sound like your dancer was set up very nice...

the nose and tail on the loaded dancer are perfect for what they are needed for, the weight is amazing for any sort of manuals and with pairs 180s and some tall cone venoms, the turn is amazingly sharp for such a large board and standup slides aren't that bad

nah, I'm just not a big fan

Also I'm building one for Inuit-Joe at the moment, so if you want one (Joshua Stephans) I'd be more than happy to build one, somewhere around $120. And I mean a real board, not the cut out of flat ply thing I mentioned above.

no thanks i'm aiight.
i'm happy enough to buy my dancer.
i just wanted peoples input on the board. i'm still buying it regardless of public opinion.

but thanks for the offer.

i should be fine dealing with the turning issue, especially since i've been riding an $80 longboard from big w that doesnt flex or turn.
and carrying it wont bother me either :)
like Mike said, it was probably the setup that I rode, the guy had some crazy angle risers going
