I just took this board out for the first time today. Icy wet conditions. It had absolutely no problem shredding through ice with that magne-traction thing. wicked flex, not too soft but not too stiff. the pop on the board is pretty badass. i had to bail on my first jump cuz i was so high (in more then one way). it was also my first time on a reverse camber board and i will never go back to a regular camber. I highly recommend this board to people of all skill levels.
