Yes Brian...that's probably the main reason I'm not that big a fan of air boards...the weight...when I've taught at several Community Colleges I always expressed the importance of letting the paper do the work and not to apply pressure on the block but, with an air board, the shear weight alone applies pressure. It just seemed contradictory to what I was trying to teach. Again, and please don't anyone get me wrong, they do have a purpose and work well when used properly, as I mentioned earlier, I feel I have more control with a hand held long board.
