I currently ride this board in the 144... It is so much fun to ride on, easy to carve, nice and soft, and flexy. i take it in the park a bit and on the groomed runs and it does the job nicely.. and, please, the design is AMAZING! who wouldnt want a board with sick little buttons on it? it has been the most amazing board to learn on- forgiving, durable, and fun! i reccomend it!
