Description

TESTER: Knut Carter

BOARD: Winterstick Ark wood top 158

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Stiff

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: I loved it. Stance maybe could go a little bigger.

OVERALL COMMENTS: Pretty amazing board. The would top looks awesome. I like how the would top mages it stiffer, but still has a damp feeling to it. Tortional flex felt great. It seems like the would top gave it a natural flex side to side. It is very responsive. Really solid on any landing, hard or soft.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

SHAPE COMMENT: AT THING OF BEAUTY

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Perfect shape to ride big mountains in all conditions. The nose is great for float ant the tail is great for landings and staying in control.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   RADICAL

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Perfect for my style of riding. I like to go fast and make quick turns. The fictional flex made it really easy to turn around trees. The stiffness in the length made it great for small landings where you need to be on point to get around obstacles.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   RADICAL

STABILITY COMMENT: ROCK SOLID- AS GOOD AS IT GETS

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: Stable as it gets.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Although it’s very stiff it is very easy to maneuver. Again the wood top made it stiff yet playful.

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    RADICAL

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EFFORTLESSLY FLOATY

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: It tears through powder and the nose is a perfect width for float. I like how stiff the nose is so you have control in variable powder.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  RADICAL

GRAPHICS COMMENT: AESTHETIC AND INSPIRING

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: Naturally beautiful

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: I hope to add this board to my quiver. I could use it in any conditions and be very happy.
