BOARD: MtnLocal Oceanic 152

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  7

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: This board is solid, stout and shreds.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Heavy and stiff in anything choppy

OVERALL COMMENTS: Love this board! Carves smooth, hard and low, giving off excellent stability on groomers and euro style carving. Floats in pow like a butterfly, with quick handling through tighter turns. It fell short in choppy pow or mogul conditions, immediately stiffening up my turns and zapping the energy in my legs and feet. While it’s not a very poppy and snappy board, it handles airtime well. Landing was a bit challenging and I washed out on almost every landing.
