    Default ordering a exile this week

    hey guys i think i am finally going to order a exile s glass. looking to get into wave riding. still will do a fair amount of flat landing, so far i have black top white logo grey bottom, s glass, 5/8 thickness, probably get a traction pad and arch bar as well. also getting the textured over the gloss finish. anymore suggestions? need input before orderin.
    Thanks

    where do you skim? you might want to look into getting a 3/4 instead of 5/8 seeing how you are a beginner
