The first thing I noticed about this board was its weight--I thought the package was empty when I picked it up.
I really like the graphics on the board too, it looks much better in person, and the girls love it!
I was really excited to ride this board. The first time I strapped into it I was in the hallway of my Inn in VT, this board has a lot of flex. I was doing nose hops down the hallway with ease.
On the mountain, my first run down was interesting. The edge hold is not as great as my T Rice MTX, so I was on my butt quite a few times, but by the second run I was carving naturally. The S-Class Technology on the board really helps at smoothing out the ride. I didn't feel any bumps at all. Buttering is also really easy with this board, not as easy as with a rocker, but still pretty effortless.
After I was more comfortable riding the Jibpan, I took it to the park. This board is a beast. Boxes, rails, kickers, it took everything with ease.
All in all, this board is just super fun to ride.
