I've been riding Burton boards for over 8 years now. I've rode expensive boards and cheap boards and this thing is awesome. I am 5'6" tall 165lbs and ride the 155cm. I hit jumps and freeride the mountain side. I know the description says it's a park board but the flex and pop is great on the mountain it takes the jarring off your knees and sends you into another tight carve. Performs like a $600.00 borard. Well worth the price.
