I hopped on this demo board the other day and had a blast! I'm an intermediate rider and felt a lot more playful and carefree than I do on my older, stiffer Ride Fever. Ollies were just a little higher, carves were just a little easier. Transitions weren't as quick, but chatter was low and I feel like I connected with the terrain more. An all around fun board to take things to the next level with.
