Have been riding for 20 years and always had traditional camber boards. I started the morning off with my old board that had just been tuned and it felt good. The hill was hard icy and steep but for the 1st ride of the season felt pretty good. Took a few runs and then switched over to the Lando. This board rips felt good right of the bat, held on the ice better then anything I have ever ridden was extremely stable at speed and it has a ton of pop. It is very stiff so will have to see how that feels in the pow. Had a great 1st day and thinking going to have many more with this board and for once I got a board that rips and I like the graphics.
