My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: A mix of blue and gray skies, low wind, warm temps, slush, chop, chunder, and soft hero snow on the groomers.

Flex: This board comes ever so slightly below a middle of the road park flex giving it a bit more play. You have softer tips then a slightly stiffer mid section with a ton of torsional flex.

Stability: For how soft this board is it’s actually surprisingly stable for what it is. Yeah you will get chatter in the tips and feel that underfoot and in rutted out terrain it gets pushed around but what do you expect from a deck like this? When I say it’s surprisingly stable I didn’t feel like I was going to die on it.

Ollies: There’s some super solid snap from this board. When you load up the camber section it hits this little flex point in the tips that just turns into a springboard and this board boosts. You can launch off everything in your path and never worry about it. Send that roller, pop that sidehit, and gap over that family of fat skiers that fell in front of you.

Pop On Jumps: Small to medium jumps are going to be its strong suit and that’s fine. It snaps off the lip easily enough and gets you in the air without any worries, so go send it you baby park hero you!

Butterability: The tips have this nice sweet spot that just lets you press into it with ease. You never have to worry about it not wanting to lock in and hold the press. So go get weird and have some fun.

Jibbing: This board is so easy to press on a feature you don’t have to worry about it. Lock in that nose or tail press and let it snap out of the end of the feature with relative ease. When you go sideways the elliptical camber sections really let you lock in a slide and just go for it.

Carving: It’s a softer freestyle deck so obviously there are going to be some limitations with how hard you can carve it. But that never stops it from letting you occasionally lay it over hard and spring out of the carve. It’s those medium mellow carves where you’re just ankle steering that really let you have some fun cruising with this board.

Rider in Mind: Price conscious park rider.

Personal Thoughts: The change in the camber profile since the last time I rode this is nice. It gives it more power and lets you pop higher but doesn’t sacrifice its playfulness. This is a board I always have fun on when I get a chance to hop on it and dick around.
