This is a very light, fast, aggressive board. At first it was like learning to ride all over again, the board really wanted to take off. But if you push it hard, it really responds well. It is super stable, I'm able to just jam over the top of crud, or blast down the wall of a gully, with a much more solid feel. It holds the edges really well. And fast, wow, this board is really fast. As for edge to edge carving, I have to work this board a little harder than my previous board, but that may be because it's 2cm longer that my last board. But the extra effort is worth the gains in speed and edge control. It's a board that I'll grow into. Truthfully it's one notch higher than my ability. But if I ride it the way it wants to be ridden, it'll take my riding to the next level.
