I picked up a 158cm Sierra Reverse Crew compliments of a daily give-away a few weeks ago and had the chance to get out and ride it this past weekend. Wow!
I'm an old guy (forty-something)used to riding groomed runs on a Burton Custom & I was skeptical of the concept of a rockerd board. Has to be a squirrly ride, right? Wrong!
This thing is every bit as easy to carve around on as the Custom plus it is absolutely loaded with pop. Until this past weekend I wouldn't have been able to tell you what pop was - now I get it.
I pulled up the nose & all of a sudden I'm buttering...went back on the tail and popped an ollie (haven't done that since skateboarding as a kid)...hit a terrain feature and got air...was able to go to switch and back at speed without dumping myself.
I love the Custom I ride but this Reverse Crew is an absolute riot. Very confidence inspiring - extremely manuverable & it begs to be in the air.
My lone gripe with this board is sizing...I wish Sierra had put a board size between 155 & 159. A Small gripe for an otherwise great board!
