OVERALL COMMENTS: This might be my next board. incredibly light underfoot and super responsive. last board of the day, but it made me feel like it was just the beginning. At one point, I looked for the Nitrous button, thinking I’d hit it by accident, but apparently, there isn’t one, just super fast fun. Even going faster than I should have been, it felt grippy stable on all terrain: bowl, trees, flats…
