This kills the entire mountain but the flex is so soft that its great for presses and butters. I say this is mainly a park board (which is what i do) but it can do everything else too!Easily stomped kickers and jibbed. Cuts through powder pretty good and great control. I have the regular cartels since i didnt have anymore money left for EST bindings but the board still responds extremely well, best board ive ever rode. Also it does come with hardware if you dont have EST bindings. I defiantly recommend this board to any park person!
