Best Stick for a talented Soul Rider.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used this board all last season. Its performance is exemplary in nearly all conditions, although as a Baker Boy I'm usually looking for the steep and deep. The board is a visual masterpiece, and the wood grain is so damn classy... timeless, and hence why I called it the stick for a soul rider. I did have an issue with the top sheet delaminating a little at the tip and tail mostly due to people bonking into me in lift lines (they must just love the board so much that they wanted a closer look). A little clear epoxy and a clamp fixed it right up and the board is as good as new.
Performance wise it is really nice and, if you keep the edges sharp, it will hold a line through a turn on the best or worst snow days on the mountain. It finds edge quick when coming down from flight time, and even rides well switch. The board isn't super wide, but plently wide enough for my size 10.5 boots. If you're a bigfooter then you might look to either get a wide model of this board (if they make one) or look elsewhere for your epic-stick. Cheers.
