Hands down THE best board I have ever ridden (and I am 38 and have been riding every year since I was 19)! First off, the graphics are just plain sick, top and bottom. Our resorts just opened, and I couldn't wait to ride this beast. This board can do it all: float in powder, rail on the groomed, cut through chunder, press. The antivex dampening is really cool, where you usually get chatter, it just plows right through. Ice into powder! I can't wait to ride this board even more and see what it's limits are. I am 5'9", weigh 190, and I got the 159. You won't be disappointed, and will be the envy of your crew.
