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.

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.
