Conditions: Overcast skies with pockets of blue, high to moderate winds, cold temps with a gnarly wind chill, ice, chunder, corduroy, and everything in between.

Flex: This board comes in just below a middle of the road flex. You end up with an abundance of flex in the tips that is accentuated by the rocker sections. It’s stiffer through the insert pack but there is a ton of torsional flex which gives this board a lot of play in the center.

Stability: The flat section is where most of the stability derives from and even then you can feel most vibrations directly under foot. The tips get some serious flap at high speed which you do feel this is only more pronounced in rutted out terrain as they’re bouncing off everything in front of them. With that said keep your knees bent and prepare yourself for a lively ride because you should be fine.

Ollies: The flat to rocker gives this board a 100% skate like pop to it that doesn’t require you to load it up to engage it. When you snap you get what you put in so if you’re lazy don’t expect a big return. It has more than enough pop to boost off a roller or a sidehit with ease.

Pop On Jumps: Small to medium-ish jumps are its strong suit. It’s not the snappiest thing on a jump and that’s fine that’s not what it’s for. The nice thing is you can be laid back and less calculated to get the pop off a lip.

Butterability: Here’s where this board shines. It just locks in to a press and stays locked in without fighting you but when you need to engage a little snap out of a butter it’s there. This thing can just hold a press forever if you want it to.

Jibbing: Much like buttering this once again locks in and lets you know that you are pressing by holding it through the feature and if you want the landing. It’s one of those boards. It’s easy to engage and it never fights you. When you get sideways on a feature even though it’s flat through the middle it hugs with power around anything and feels secure.

Carving: The edge to edge transmission is smooth and fluid. It’s not nimble or powerful and you realize that when you try to drive this board hard. It does have limitations and that should be expected when you look at it because look who has their name associated with it and what it’s designed for. Short quick carves or medium mellow drawn out ones are its strong suit. The nice thing is that it does all its steering directly underfoot.

Rider in Mind: Jib focused park rider.

Personal Thoughts: It’s been a few years since I last rode this board and it’s had some tweaks. It feels a bit more smooth when you ride it and seems to be slightly stiffer but not by a crazy margin. It’s playful and forgiving which makes it fun for buttering around but you can still dig an edge in if you need to do a carve which gives it some balance.
