This board has changed my belief that all boards are the same. At the beginning of the season I bought a new Burton Custom and after 3 days of riding it normal, it split down the side opening like a butterfly! I bought this Agent and have used it twice so far... I feel more comfortable hitting rails, jumps, etc. I love the flex this board has but at higher speeds the board still maintains its structure and doesn't wobble. This is an excellent board, and A++++ for backcountry customer service!
