Absolutely love my A-Frame. It was my first serious board, and I'm ready to get another one (same model). I have the 158, Its a very aggressive board to ride, carves great and does well in powder, not as easy as my Hovercraft when it's really deep, but you can manage if you set it all back and like a really surfy ride. The board is stiff, cambered and not super easy to ride, like a hybrid rocker, but the rebound out of a carve is so addictive. I use it with very high binding angles on groomers, or all set back on powder. Either way it's a great ride. The new one looks gorgeous.

The top sheet is not the strongest, and I do have water seeping in the holes I am not using, and lifting the top sheet in a point, but removing the bindings at the end of the day and drying the unused holes solves the problem.

In the last section of the video I switch from the Hovercraft (that also carves amazingly well for a pow board) back to the A-Frame

Good luck!
