The Forum Spinster is like nothing I've ever ridden! It is sooo soft and pressable... this board is incredible on rails but doens't mush up when landing on jumps. The blunt nose and tail make it so you need to down size, i usually ride a 149 and I rode the 146, it was perfect. If you are looking to progress in the park, this is a great board... or if you are brand new to snowboarding, this board would be incredible easy and fun to learn on, so forgiving! Love it!
