No snowboard is going to be perfect for everything, but this board definitely comes close. Whether you're in the park, or bombing some steep slopes, it'll handle whatever you throw at it. Mine is the 2011-2012 model so the graphics are a bit different but I don't believe they've made any huge differences since I bought mine. It's not as stiff as say the Dark Series (also an epic board) but it's also not as soft as the skate banana. If you're only going to buy one snowboard, let this be the one. The base isn't sintered, it's extruded, so it's a little slower than some higher performing boards but it's still very fast when you put good wax on it.
Between the Magnetraction, and the BTW rocker/camber, this board can handle any condition you throw at it. I'm 5'10" ~200lbs and I ride a 157.
