Everything I expected
I demoed this board before I bought it and was very happy. It rides amazing at speed, on steeps and in powder. It also is easy on landings off of cornices and cliffs. Turns quickly on bumps but likes to go fast with long, arching turns better. A day later went back to the other board and was greatly disappointed. This board lives up to the description of Big Mountain/Freeride style board. Very smooth and a joy to ride, would definately recommend it.
