Core does not equal quality
I bought this board in the middle of summer, the worse thing you can do because I just waited and waited to shred the snow covered terrain, especially with my sick new board. Long story short, my top sheet started delaminating maybe 6 sessions into the season. Then my sidewall exploded about 8 inches long right between my binding on my toe edge. Other than that, I loved the board, but the quality just isn't there, or someone from the company to respond to emails or phone calls - what can you do right? I suggest ride Rome.
