All the hype is true - loved this board after breaking a wrist with my more poppy K2 Darkstar. I am on the IceCoast and it is massively stable on ice and at speeds. I dont agree that it can be used in park but that's my opinion but it can tango with any board for the fastest path to the lift. Works well with White Bindings too although I agree Black may be more stealthy. Would recommend for the advanced to intermediate as it is too stiff for a beginner although the edges are designed for leniency. Good times.
