For a board under $400 it is loaded with features and rides amazing. I've been riding for 15 yrs and I have never been put into a situation where I needed more board. The low-rize rocker is stable enough to hit high speeds and bigger jumps with out washing or getting squirly but really makes it easy to ride in deeper snow. I had a 48" day in Brighton last year and didn't have another board so I rode my 55cm floated with all my buddies that were on 62cm + sized boards. The cleave edge paired with the slimewalls make this board super durable too for your kid riding rails and such all day. Overall this board super fun and can handle it's own in a bunch of different situations.
