Like most boards, my stoke level is through the roof before riding it. After 20+ years of riding I'm pretty confident in my ability to pick the right board off the shelf. I focus on specific specs that fit my size and riding style. With the Flight Attendant being a directional board, I was concerned about how it will ride switch. This board is directional but Burton centered the stance between the contact points. I did some research and read or watched a few reviews where the riders claimed that it rides switch pretty well. Its always scary to buy a new board, especially a 1st generation, but knowing your specific fit needs and doing a little research can go a long ways. Can't wait to put some new Cartel EST bindings on it and take it out on a hunt.
