This board is amazing.. I have ridden a NeverSummer Evo for the past 3 years and I never thought I would ever ride anything other than a NeverSummer board ever again. But I came across a great deal on this Arbor Del Rey and I have been nothing but pleased with the new board. It has surpassed my expectations for sure.. Its great all over the mountain whether you like to ride the park or you like to just straight up rip up some pow.. It has great pop and is pretty flexible.. And the base on this board is super fast straight from the factory. Also the top layer holds up really well.. I had a few skiers run into me with their skis while at the lift lines and at the end of the day there werent any scratches at all.. All in all a gread board and I highly recommend it..
I don't really know how to rate boards, as this is my first one, and I'm no expert, but I do own it, so I will review it. I can talk about the width though. I wear a size 12 boot, and I had no issues with toe drag. Other things to consider: my leading foot is angled about 15 degrees, the backfoot virtually straight, maybe 5 degrees tops.. and I'm on K2 bindings. I do remember last month on a rental board, I had slight issues with toe drag.. nothing extreme, but noticeable. I noticed no toe drag at all here. So you don't have to worry too much if you think you have big feet..
Okay I may be wrong, but my understanding is freestyle boards tend to be wider in general.. but the numbers don't lie.. I don't recall off hand, but in the research I did before buying, this board is not much skinnier than a Burton WIDE board I was also considering... I'm glad I went with this one because I love the design. Doublecheck the stats and research before buying, but for me, I decided (and ended up being correct) that slightly skinnier by like a centimeter or two versus a wide board is not a factor.
Hope this helps some of the larger footed riders who are in love with boards not offered in wide lol
whats the flex on the board?

I picked it up on Saturday nght and instantly put two days on it. It rides smooth and fast. I rode it all mountain and park and it rides great either way. The only downside is the top sheet chips out pretty easily. Great board!
