WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Sooooooo lightweight.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: A bit too soft and not damp at all.
OVERALL COMMENTS: This thing is crazy light!! The shape was cool and rode great. Very versatile all mountain ride. It wasn’t stiff so it floated better than I anticipated. Def felt the lack of dampening in the chunder though, musta been the carbon feel. Over all it felt good, would be a good resort, free ride dabbling in freestyle board!
