WOW is this thing amazing. Just took it out for the first time yesterday and fell in love. After every run, all I could do is talk about my board. Been riding Burton and Never Summer and will stick with Rome for a while now. Haven't had the chance to hit Pow yet, but feel it will handle it as it does everything else.
I ride the entire mountain, and only about 25-30% in the park, depending on the conditions. I was looking for an all-mountain board that could get creative and be fun and playful in the natural backcountry terrain, while still being able to haul-ass on the groomers. I found it.
First of all, the stories of the insane pop are true. First run, first jump, I tried to mellow a simple straight air without loading up and this thing launched into outer space. Even tho I was caught off guard, its actually a predictable amount of pop, and kept me very stable. After that it was on. I've never charged kickers so hard and so clean.
Given the conditions, I was in the park most of the day, but this thing charges as well. Holds a great edge and mashes through the chop with confidence. Riding switch is a dream. I set my stance about an inch back and got a great directional carve as well. Definitely an all mountain board. Stiffer than a park board, but still a blast in there and light as a feather.
I can go on forever. Bottom line is this board is the most fun board I've ever been on and it's OG Camber!!! Enjoy this thing as I have.
