Flex: When I say this board is a stiff directional ride I mean it’s stiff. Yes you get the standard directional flex of a softer nose into a stiffer tail, but man it’s just super stiff throughout. This is a board that definitely lends itself to the freeride flex fully. There’s a little torsional flex but it isn’t anything to write home about.

Stability: Well this board is stable that’s for sure. You notice that right away when you plow through everything in your path and skip right over any ruts in the terrain. Micro vibrations? Yeah I’m sure there’s some in there somewhere but you never feel it. This board is very damp.

Ollies/Pop: Well this board has the most camber out of anything with C3 that I’ve ever ridden. You want to pop, load it up and prepare for some boost. This thing will shoot you to the moon. It’s an aggressive board to load up and even when you put minimal effort into it, you still pop.

Butterability: This is a super chore on this board. It fights you the whole time and you need to keep your weight way out over the tip and tail.

Carving: This is one of those boards that just wants to be on edge and locked in. There’s no time to not give it your full attention. It springs in and out of turns due to the abundance of camber while its edge to edge transition is aggressively quick. Short quick turns or long hard drawn out carves this thing lets you know it means business.

Rider in Mind: Oldschool camber loving Jamie Lynn freeride fan boy.

Personal Thoughts: Dear god this board was a work out. I mean a true work out. You feel the rebound out of this board the second you strap in. It’s got so much camber to it. And the flex is super powerful. This is a board for hauling ass and that’s it. I won’t lie this is just too much board for me for most days and while I didn’t like it I loved the fact that it exists. There is a rider for this for sure.
