I got this board last year for 200$ on sierra, and it was probably one of the best purchases I ever made. I wear a big-sized boot, so having a wide board is a must, but I also like to shred the park as well as the rest of the mountain. This board is a great park board. It's got a nice flex for doing nose and tail presses, and yet it still manages to maintain some hardness on big jumps and kickers. There are impact plates inside the board for reducing the shockwave from jibbing, however this adds some weight to the board. Other than that I really have no complaints. I put this as an intermediate board because it's fairly well-priced and it's good if you are a moderate skill level, but I would also recommend this to any advanced rider, especially if they have big feet.
