Put it this way. My homie got a DWD that was a big factor in him learning to love snowboarding again. Then he tried out a Bataleon and hasn't ridden his DWD since in 3 seasons. Added another Bataleon to his quiver since then too.
That sounds pretty convincing. Do you know which Bataleon he's riding? I was thinking the Evil Twin but wasn't sure if it would be too flexible for me, and that's why I was considering the Riot because it is a little bit stiffer.
