This is a really cool board to ride. The equalizer sidecut is much different from a radial one, and it took me a few runs to get used to it, but it was super fun. It is rockered, so pop isn't outstanding, but its super flexy. The flex is more on the tip and tail of the board, and it's stiffer through the middle for stability when going really fast so unlike normal noodle boards, this board can handle bombing down the hill with minimal chatter. It held an edge pretty well on ice too!
