Touchgrind: board abilities

each board in touchgrind has special abilities that no other board has. I am going to start a whole list here. Post the ones you know, in time we will all figure them out. Look at the description for a hint on what they can do.

The monkey one: flips faster

Zen: I don't have this yet but it says something about rubbing the buddhas belly, so maybe a boardslide activates some kinda power or something.

yeah I didn't know about it either but I checked the site and it said "12boards each with different abilities" or something like that.

Kakkoii: I seem to land most of my tricks when using this board so I stick with it (I also love the design) Description mentions luck so that might have something to do with it.

It looks like there are different stats for all the boards
Flip (how fast the board flips)
Shuvit (how fast the board spins)
Ride (how fast the board travels)
Ollie (airtime)
Landing (how likely you are to stick a landing)

I thought this was the case, but I didn't see too much of a difference. It would be nice to have some sort of guide on this, although it's sort of fun to figure out what each board's advantages are.

I noticed that the king is probably the hardest board to use but it gives you extra points for doing good tricks. The devil board will almost always flip itself over if you land upside down so you don't have to worry about missing tricks. Those are the only 2 I know tho

Boards have special abilities? I never noticed. I got every board on the first day I got it though.
