BOARD: Niche Ember 146

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The fact that it is a unisex board just different flex patterns (I believe)

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: How I felt on the board

OVERALL COMMENTS: This board has a beautiful graphic, everyone loved it, the shape is different and intriguing. I was so excited to try it and I just don’t feel as if it was the board for me. Could be the fact I rode it on groomers rather than pow.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  OK

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  I feel as if this just wasn’t the board for me as much as I wanted it to be. It’s hard to explain but it felt as if while transitioning from one edge to another it would feel normal for the first part and then just would flop to the edge. I’m nice on the edge you could hold that thing forever but it felt a bit stiff/ clunky almost. Again… I didn’t get to experience it in pow.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:   

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW:

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

GRAPHICS COMMENT: AESTHETIC AND INSPIRING

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Love what you guys did with this one! The stripe down the base definitely stands out
