RATE THE FLOAT IN POWDER (1 TO 7)): 6
RATE THE FLOAT IN POWDER (1 TO 7): EASY TO STAY UP
ADDITIONAL FLOAT IN POWDER COMMENT: It’s not as floaty as some of the more powder specific boards, but was great for an all mountain board.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY? One of my favorite boards of the ShaperSummit! It’s the definition of a quiver killer because it can do anything. I was so comfortable charging and going fast no matter what I was riding. Steeps, chunder, jumps, or whatever just rip it as hard and fast as you can because this board can take it.
