I have the 2008 version of this with the cute sea horse. I got this for a steal and never have regretted saying goodbye to my bella board.
This board has had me on the icy conditions and on powder in between the trees. It can give you sweet curves and turn on a dime if you need it too.
I love this board. I would recommend this board. Don't be upset if you ding it and some of the top coat comes of .... it just happens and you move on.
