This board has got to be one of the best boards out their for the price. it has an ok flex, VERY forgiving, and rides quite well actually in pow. Park wise, this is the best board i've ridden. it's incredibly stable for high speeds, great and smooth for pressing boxes, and it has TONS of pop. i'm about intermediate, i've been boarding for about two years now, and i gotta say, you won't be disappointed with this board. I HIGHLY suggest this board for beginner/ intermediate people who are just starting to get in the park scene. I myself am entering the park scene, and within a day, i was able to do some grabs like indy's, or melons. the board is great for all around, especially park, and i suggest buying this board today!
