How would those handle big jumps and pipe, I don’t want to hear about other boards just can you tell how this would do on pipe and big booters?

Andre on March 17, 2011 at 04:59 AM

do not buy this board the tips get banged up so easy and the top coat comes of the whole top of my kink is now compleatly white

Pavel on April 15, 2011 at 02:28 AM

I 100% agree with Andre. The top coat on mine is already chipping and I only got to use it for 4 days. The tips on the nose are chipping away as well. On the plus side, the ride is very poppy. It CAN handle some high speed carving, especially on ice but the edge hold isn’t anything to brag about. I had no prob with washouts off kickers. The rails were a blast. The ProRize rocker or Flying V or Rockercamber. Whatever you want to call it, it’s pretty sweet. It’s got my vote.
