TESTER: Eric Odlin

BOARD: Winterstick ARC ( Rob Kingwill pro model) 164

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I like boards that remind you of the people who made it. This board is solid, very fast, positive, and solid. Also its made in Maine, like me!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I would get rid of the small early rise on the tail and take the camber to the contact point. The tail is long a seems it would keep you up when getting switchy in pow
