After 20 years of freeriding in all conditions & on both sides of the continent I found the Arbor Element 161 the best all mountain board for me (6’ 190#): quick, light, snappy, quick initiation, easy landing & carving & almost as stable as a stiffer board at speed.

I bought the Element (152 cm) last year, and I rode it for half season. Truly, it is the best big mountain stick I have ever owned. I am a girl, 5’2, 115 lbs, and this board is totally made for my size and riding style (aggressive). It is lively like a bull on steroids, yet relatively light!

This board allows you to go to such speed that it will make your head spin,lol! And the pop that goes with it! I rode Burton Vapor before this one, but no more, I am going to sell it.

Initially, I had the stance set up as recommended by the manufacturer, but I found it hard to turn. So, I shifted it more to the centre, and voila, the stick was dancing!

So, you serious girl shredders, don’t be afraid to buy a man’s board!
