Pow slashin' dream machine!
5 5

I'm 5'10" 165lbs and just got done riding my 160cm Sick Stick on vacation at Northstar and Heavenly in Tahoe. They've been getting pounded the last week with 8+ feet of snow and conditions were knee to waist deep all over. This board rides so damn good! The flat camber helps it turn like a much shorter board (turned as easily as my 155 Capita Horrorscope) which was a huge bonus on those tight tree runs. The slight taper keeps the tail sunk but it still maintains control on groomers. I rode it setback and centered on different days and while you can attack the pow with a centered stance I preferred the extra float of a slight setback. I was also pleasantly surprised how light the board was. I thought because of the low weight and thinness of it that it would be a bit uncomfortable on lumpy terrain but it actually held up pretty well. Not the dampest ever, but good enough. On the few soft groomers I rode, it still felt great and was able to ride switch decently, but this is a board that will probably only come out on the days with 8+ inches of fresh and will mostly be ridden forward. The only downsides of the board to me is the price. I planned on getting the Charlie Slasher for almost $200 less, but the Sick Stick came in a better size for me and now that I've ridden it I have no regrets.

Overall this is a very surfy, very playful, good looking board that helps make those dream days even better. When this one wears out I'm sure that I'll get another.
