This is my second snowboard. An upgrade from a budget pale swing board. I found the difference to be amazing and is a great upgrade from cheap boards and rentals. It rides smooth with no noticeable chatter at speed. nice transitions from edge to edge. good flex smoothed out those ripped up groomers. As yet I haven't had a chance to take is on deep pow.
Not sure how it would go on bigger jumps but on small to medium kickers (the current limit of my skill level) it was great. very stable. Got about 6ft of air underneath and covered a distance of about 10 to 15ft sweet as. I think it would be good beginners for its easy handling right through to more advanced riders wanting to try new tricks. good all rounder but might might not suit those who focus on one particular area.
It is light but not as light as something like a Burton dominant. Im pleased I bought the antic and will look forward to increasing my skill with it.
