OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Shape, look, and Blake Paul rides it.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: If it was a 162 or 3 I’d be all over this.

OVERALL COMMENTS: A fun, feel good ride. Camber gives it a solid feel and great pop. Powwy shape lets it “do pow good”. A rippers ride for sure.

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EASY TO STAY UP

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Slashing felt good.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  OK

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: I like it. I’d like to see a larger version but this 157 is hard to out-rip!!
