One of my favorite boards I've ridden in my limited experience. The preloaded rocker system and amount of flex this board gives is seriously insane, almost comical. For those trying to learn beginning tricks (spins, presses, butters, 180's), the board is extremely forgiving and will never send you on your back while catching an edge.
I float around 150-160lb and rode this in a 148 for a few sessions. The board got a little sketchy at higher speeds, but overall I was able to keep up with my friends okay. On ice, it's definitely less secure as you get the feeling that the board will slip out under you and put you into a spin.
Definitely a lot of fun in and out of the park. I didn't get a chance to ride it on super huge runs (mostly rode in Big Bear with its shorter runs), but I re-iterate, this is one of the funnest boards I've ridden.
