I have the one from 2008 and its an amazing board. It will handle everything you throw at it and then some. I have rode in everything from typical So Cal slush, ice, and powder (including the 15' of snow Mammoth got over the holidays) and it hasn't let me down in any condition. Pretty fast base, solid construction, and crazy amounts of pop, this board is definitely made to own the jumps. It can definitely jib as well, just don't expect any crazy presses without working hard for them. I have had this board the same amount of time my buddy has had his Burton Blunt, and while his topsheet AND base are starting to peel up, my DC is still holding strong, and it has been through all the same terrain and reckless skiers running over the top of our boards in the lift line... DC makes some beast boards, and I will have mine for more seasons to come.
