This is by far the funnest board I’ve ever ridden. It’s BUTTER! I’ve never felt so comfortable and confident on any part of the mountain. We hit pow tree lines this weekend and it floated effortlessly. Went exactly where I wanted it to go without feeling restriction. Bombed groomers, the thought of catching edge didn’t even cross my mind. SO SMOOTH. Charged the park, jumps, rails, spins all effortless. It’s got a sweet surfy loose feel I’ve never had on any of my last 6 boards. After riding it once, I’ll never ride anything else. Strongly recommend this board if you like that surfy feel that can take whatever you through at it. I can’t believe I waited so long to get it.

This is definitely a "jack-of-all-trades" type of deck and although it has shortcomings in some specific areas, it is an absolute blast for everyday riding (so much so that I bought a second one after putting my first one through the wringer). If you're the type who likes to get the blood flowing with a speedy summit bomb run, boost off every side hit before ducking into tight turns in powdery glades, and then jib it up in the park for a bit - all in the same run - then this is the board for you! The rockered profile makes for a catch-free ride that makes alternating between switch and regular effortless while putting you at ease on less-than-perfect landings. It also makes powder or variable snow feel a little more natural without the need to shift more of your weight to the back foot and as someone who prefers a shorter board I still get the float I need from a 152. The (reverse) camber profile means you sacrifice some stability at high speed and don't have the same "snap" as with a cambered deck, but to that I say "don't skip leg day!" and you can compensate. The Magnetraction definitely helps maintain grip on big, open, icy faces so while the board might not be ideal for a resort-run speed demon, the flex is playful and gives the board a buttery feel that makes cruising around and exploring every bump and side-hit a blast.
