I love this board, it rides similar to my 2010 Arbor Eden. I also love that it's made locally in huntington beach. Fun board, great pop, if I didn't already own a camber board, I'd purchase this one. I'm leaning more towards rocker boards for park riding to avoid catching edges, but still an awesome board that is fun to ride downhill or through the park.
Pros: soft flex, doesn't catch edges, grips on ice
I demoed this board in 143 because it is exactly the same as the women's cadence (143). Its definitely the same great board, fun to carve steeps, hit jumps, jibs, boxes, rails, floats in powder.
Pros: no catching edges, floats in pow, grips on ice
I got to demo this board at Big Bear. I would have liked to try it in deep pow at Mammoth, but lapping the mountain and hitting the park was super fun on this board. Loves to go fast, hit jumps, carves and doesn't lose grip. Builds confidence all-around with high speeds, jumps and steeps. This board is great for ALL SKILL LEVELS.
These are great boots, I bought them on sale. I tried on the 7's, and they fit me normally with thick socks, but after strapping into my bindings and riding with them, i found the 7's were too small, so I returned them and got a size 8. I'm normally a size 6.5-7 so I think they run a little small, but I may have wider feet since I have flat feet. Other than that, great boot, no complaints, my feet never got too hot and as long as I lace them right and get insoles, I can ride in them all day.
I also love the Quick lace system, so easy to get in and out of my boots.
