I love this board! I thought I loved my last one, had a a tough time moving on....til I strapped into this one. I'm an intermediate rider, nothing fancy. Like my little jumps and baby boxes. The last board I had is from like 2002, so the rocker was quite impressive to me. Very forgiving, still had good pop with what I'd consider to be a solid landing. I'm 5'9" about 170-175lbs so this board would be considered "too small" for me, but so far I love it. Goes as fast as I'd like it to and seems to support me just fine. I wasn't too hyped about the graphics when I saw it online...bought it more for the reviews and price. Turns out I love the graphics as well. All around a great board.
