I recently purchased the Wasteland after I had my previous board/bindings jacked from me at Mammoth Mountain. My previous board was a Burton Baron 166...heavy as hell but still a decent stick. Up until this point, I rode nothing but Burton and was never disappointed. I just spent two days on my Wasteland, in a gamut of conditions, and it dominated them all and it did it in way more style and with far better feel than any of my Burton boards. This is the best purchase of my life--Hands Down!!
