Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought a late 2016 154cm handmade model from the Burton Craig Kelly R+D facility. I saw it on the Burton site and there was something about it, I had to have it. Instinctively I knew it was right without overthinking. One of those decisions. Rode it and it changed my life. I was just smiling from the first minute. Effortless, intuitive, forgiving, super fun and super, super quick turn to turn. My previous board is the Con Artist which is killer too, but this is softer and has some nice pop and just the right amount of stiffness too, like a Porsche. Superb. I ride only Japan Powder and it's a #Japow destroyer. The only other board I'm interested in is the legendary Gentemstick. Nuff said.
