If you want a stiff board with a ton of pop that can crush pow lines to big booters, this is your board. It is not the best for pressing in the park, but if you're not a park rat you won't mind this minor flaw in the board. Great response, super durable, and fun board to cruise around anywhere on. I had the older model for 3 seasons: 70+ days, 100+ days, 70+ days, and only damage on the board was when I ripped the sidewall out early season on a rock. And it was my fault, not the boards. Highly recommend this board!
