I had the earlier model of this board, and it's a pretty sweet ride. I'm an east-coast rider and this board has now lasted through a second season of wear n tear. Great board if your just starting or just looking for basic and cheap. It's a great all mountain board, it has decent pop, moves well in pow, and i could swing my 156 around in the woods pretty easy. Its a quick board too. All around this is an amazing board especially for that price. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for a great, versetile, camber.
