I have been riding for 18 years and finally found my match, I got mine two years ago, now getting this years beauty (sadly I trashed the last one). Push is truly an all mountain ride for those who know what to demand from a board. She's a strong cruiser with snappy control and will push when pushed. You can trust her to hold a solid edge on icy corners and float while surfing the powder. If you ask her to charge she will and she'll never bottom out on you.I would not recommend this to learn on due to its stiffness and snappiness, but she's a fun ride and stands up to the task of a rider who likes to push the limits and demand performance.
