This is not for the faint at heart. This board is very aggressive. You gotta work when on this board. It is amazing...you can bomb anything and it is solid and chatter free. It is very stiff, so not much a rail, buttery board, but WOW it has pop. It is a great board for an advanced women ride. I would not recommend this for anyone beginning or intermediate. But if you are looking for a more aggressive durable board this is the way to go. I enjoyed my time on it. Make sure you have stiffer bindings to help just rally this board around the mt.
