I have been riding 20 years now and I have been on a lot of decks. This is the best board I have ever ridden. It holds an edge on ice, charges through choppy, bumpy conditions, floats in pow super good thanks to lowrize rocker. The slimewalls take out all the chatter. The board is super lively and has tons of pop!! Its super light too! Ride has this thing figured out no doubt!!! Some people think this is just a park board, but this thing will charge the whole mountain!!! This is for real!! I have size 11 Ride Duece boots and I am 6'3" and 230 lbs. I am on a 161 wide. Its perrrrfect!!!
