First of all, yes, this board is probably too small for me, but I don't care. I've wanted one since last year, and since a 157 was the only one in stock anywhere, I took what I could get.

Initial thoughts: This board is a PITA to scrape wax off. It prolly took me an hour to scrape the wax off the damn thing because it's hard to get the BS areas.

If anyone thinks that BS Tech & TBT are even remotely similar, they are smoking crack! BS tech runs from the contact points in nose/tail and makes an arch inward toward the waist of the board. At the waist of the board, the BS tech goes inward, maybe 1-1.5" from the edge.

Although I already rode it this past week, I'll wait to post my thoughts about it until I have another day on it.
