I road this board christmas eve and fell in love with the ride... I am no where near a park/jib/rail rat. I'm older and want nothing more then to just shread the mountain. I was so surprised to use this board and discover I love riding rockers... Feels like your bounced up and over the snow and I can't even explain it, the feel was great and especially great at high speeds... My question is, why are rocker style boards meant for park use? and are they not recommended for someone who is looking to just shread the mountain? I tried 4 high quality boards on saturday including the GNU riders choice and still fell inlove with this one. Let me know what ya'll think..
