Board rips when its deep, the rockered tip and tail give it a really surfy feel. Great flex pattern overall, found it to be a perfect for a pow board: Still some play in the board, but there is enough rigidity to hold up in the crud and in landings - plus the cap construction makes it really playful and lively. Because of the rocker and cap it doesn't have the best edge-hold, found my edges slipping a lot of traverses and windblown stuff. It did however Delam on me, but k2 Warranted it right away.
Overall: Not the kind of board I would ride everyday, I really only bust it out with 12"+. But when I do get to ride it its a blast. If you are in an area without a lot of snow but sill want a pow board, go for the turbo dream- much more versatile.
