This is the first board I've ever owned after years of borrowing boards from my friends and renting at multiple resorts. This board is by far the best I've ever rode. The flexibility is just right and the true twin is really nice. I rode in Utah, New Mexico, and Whistler with this board. I also rode all over Keystone throughout the seasonpopoh96te and the super amazing A-51 park that they have and not a signle problem. It handled every signle jump, rail, and box with no problem at all. My brother also has this board and is mad at me cause he says that I should be better with this board. Further I've never had a problem with Technine warranty, anytime I've had a binding problem I just took it in to the factory and they didn't ask any questions. My brother was able to get a brand new board after 2 years of hardcore riding because the laminate was starting to peel. Technine is by far the best.
