By far the best board I've ever ridden. Everybody says that it takes a day to get a feel for it, but that's not the case. It takes about one or two runs to figure out that the board is sick. It's almost effortless to turn under any conditions. It felt a little weird at first because my old board (gnu carbon high beam or any other previous board) required a lot more effort to turn. I just got the chance to try it out in some powder and was pretty impressed. The board did seem to float a little easier at slower speeds, but felt just like any other board at higher speeds. Usually I would go 4 or 5 cm bigger for a pow board, so it's nice not having to travel with two boards. This thing feels like it is on rails when on ice. For somebody like me that lives on the ice coast, the magna traction is a must have. It's scary how well it hooks up on ice. The best thing about the reverse camber is that there is no chatter when hitting the brakes hard. Also took it into the park and was impressed, made rails and boxes pretty easy. No more catching the front lip with the banana board. The only complaint that I have is that is has minimum pop and the nose and tail chip easily. Mervin, do us a favor and put a whole sheet of metal on the board. I can handle the extra 15 ounces of weight.
