WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It charged! It made me feel so confident and like I could take it anywhere.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Can’t think of anything I didn’t like.

OVERALL COMMENTS: I wouldn’t call it the best board at any one aspect of snowboarding, but it was damn good at everything.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  5

SHAPE COMMENT: FUN TO LOOK AT

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  The shape fit the ride of the board.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   RADICAL

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   RADICAL

STABILITY COMMENT: ROCK SOLID- AS GOOD AS IT GETS

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: I’d take this board anywhere.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  I wouldn’t call this board playfulI. It means business, and has great pop! So springy off jumps and effortless ollie pop.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    6

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EASY TO STAY UP

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: It’s not as floaty as some of the more powder specific boards, but was great for an all mountain board.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  6

GRAPHICS COMMENT: I’M FEELING IT

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Totally appropriate for the style of ride.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: One of my favorite boards of the Pow Wow! It’s the definition of a quiver killer because it can do anything. I was so comfortable charging and going fast no matter what I was riding. Steeps, chunder, jumps, or whatever just rip it as hard and fast as you can because this board can take it.
