TESTER: Alli Noland
BOARD: Franco Bump Tail 146 146
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 6
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Supreme floatiness
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: a little too stiff, I might miss the tail a little when winging out of control across groomers
OVERALL COMMENTS: I was digging the Bump Tail, especially through the trees. I rode the same line with each board and the Bump Tail snatched turns through cheyenne woods like no other, but I got tossed around in the Bowl a bit. Can’t wait to try next year’s softer version!
