OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  7

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It’s a whole different experience

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The first couple turns are something to get used to… but after that it’s a rip!

OVERALL COMMENTS: Slow and flowing is the name of the game on this machine… brought my stance all the way in to 18” and just went surfing! The nose stays up real nice in the pow, and that reverse taper makes for some extra juicy turning… then it came down and ripped the turns on the groomer at the bottom! Super fun experience.
