home mtns. are marquette mountain and heavenly valley. also rode timber ridge and bittersweet in high school. I have a degree in Ski Area Management. Also worked as a snowmaker/groomer at heavenly valley. SAM for life.
So I just rode this board for the first time today and this board rocked my socks off!!! I went from a Ride DH2 157 to the Superpark 159, and after the first run I was turning quicker, I could ollie higher, and the board seemed much more stable. I also hit a few jumps(35-40ft.) and the spin-recovery on the landings is amazing! It seemed as if I only had to put my feet down and the board did the rest. Plus, I didn't have any trouble washing out on icy landings. The board was a little stiffer on rails than I expected but I'm sure it will soften up to my liking. The one thing that caught me off guard was the color... Mine is blaze orange and yellow, not blue/green. Other than that this board has exceeded my expectations and will take your riding to a new level.
