First of all, I work for Mervin Mfg. so it's up to you whether to believe me or not. This is by far the most fun I've ever had snowboarding. I was lucky enough to get one last January. This board has a 7meter sidecut, which is TIGHT! It does the tightest little turns you could ever imagine but is still stable on longer turns. Because of the powerful construction (basalt fiber/no fiberglass) the board just accelerates out of turns. I rode it most of the rest of last season and when I rode something else, I was kind of wishing I was back on the Magic. I'm not a park guy so I didn't ride rails with it. But it is banana so I'm sure it works great in the park. Bottom line: completely different than any snowboard I've ever ridden. Mike Olson's favorite board! Fun!!!
