I've never snowboarded before so I researched this board a good deal before making my purchase. Overall it seemed to rate very highly. What I wasn't prepared for is just how beautiful it is. The clover enclosure in this picture doesn't show the detail. It almost looks as though a real clover were enclosed in clear embossed casing. The Swiss symbol is also elevated. Mine did arrive with a nick or two but, as stated, I've never snowboarded before, so I doubt they'll be the last.
