This board ROCKS! The Spell has made me fall in love. I have never rode any Nitro boards, and I am between the size available in this board (I normally ride a 149 or 150), so I got the 151 and it's perfect. Still could use a cm shorter, but I just made my stance a tad wider and it's all good. This board RIPS through powder and down groomed runs, and is awesome on rails, and the Zero camber gives it crazy pop for kickers and jumps. The flex is just about perfect, but it's not as soft as it sounds. (I've had softer), which makes it good for rails and jumps. It's an all-in-one board for girls who like to ride park and all mountain (living in Utah, you have to do both).
