Description

TESTER: Levi Johnson

BOARD: Elevated Red Tail Hawk 150?

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Carving was amazing, and this board road different than any board I’ve ever been on!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Honestly nothing.

OVERALL COMMENTS: You have to stay on edge with this board and I imagine most people would complain about not riding well flat based, but I thought it made it awesome and such a fun unique experience on a snowboard!

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

SHAPE COMMENT: AT THING OF BEAUTY

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  First impression looking at it I was skeptical if I’d even like it. Then I was blown away and immediately fell in love with it!

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   RADICAL

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT: 

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   RADICAL

STABILITY COMMENT: ROCK SOLID- AS GOOD AS IT GETS

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: It’s only stable if you’re on edge. Flat based it’s squirrelly as hell, but this board is not meant to not be ridden flat based so…

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  The board isn’t meant to be a jumper, but I thought it had great pop taking that into consideration. It’s also so damn stable jumping it was really fun!

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    RADICAL

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Ok so I didn’t get to ride this board in powder, but with the size and shape of this thing there’s no way it wouldn’t arguably be the best floating board on the planet.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  OK

GRAPHICS COMMENT: I’M FEELING IT

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: It’s just simple, but I think because of the unique shape there’s no need get to crazy with the graphics.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: I’m going to buy one!
