Picked up my first Real deck a couple of days ago and it's probably the best skateboard I have ever had. Concave is amazing, got lots of pop, and it is very durable. I'm a pretty big boy, so when I say it's durable, you know it's strong. Going from a blank Mini Logo to a pro deck is a complete change for me. Personally, it is truely worth spending a few extra bones to get a pro model. Would definitely recommend Real Skateboards to all.
