This board totally rips! I rode the 158 at Buttermilk (in Aspen) last year and loved it! Great width for larger feet, I have 11.5's and prefer waist widths from 260 - 263 mm; no toe drag! I could lay into fast and deep euro carves with complete confidence even though it was icy. The aggressive side cut was perfect and Magna Traction is a must have! This has been the board of choice of pro rider Mark Hoyt for the last few years; and this is the only board he has not broken. This is a great choice for anyone charging hard. Buy this board!
