Did she ride the Barracuda in powder?

I own one and find it to be a fabulous powder deck and ride it in nothing but. Burton pitches it as an "all around" type deck but anything from Burton with an S rocker profile ( Fishcuit included ) should be regarded as a dedicated powder board.

There is also a K2 Ultra Dream in my quiver. An exceptional powder board with a nicely balanced surfy ride about it that is a little better on groomers than the Barracuda but both have a distinct "surfy" ride about them.

If she can, she should continue to demo as many as she can, hopefully in powder, for if not, she will never know how the board rides in the element it was designed for.
Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
