I'm a retired park rat that loves fast cruisers, playing around all-mountain style, and powder days. I think this board needs more cred than just as a great park board!! I rarely do more than hit a few rails in the park occasionally. But, I've found this board floats pow nicely, will charge through heavy stuff, carves ok, and is fun at top speedsI am 5'5, 125 lbs, and have a 153. I was going to buy the pro model, but got too good of a deal on this board bc it was a year old (still new.) I think the slightly stiffer pro model would have been a bit better, but overall I am wild about my gnu!
