I have had an Arbor Element for the past few years now. Returning with the new one just keeps it going. Definitely a necessity to keep in your quiver. I've taken this from Alaska to Austria and it has never let me down, from powder to park. Besides, why do you want to look like everyone else on the mountain with boards that look the same, be an individual, stand out, and get one of these, you will truly be impressed with it's versatility.
