I am stoked about this board. I'm not doing park much anymore but still want an all mountain freestyle. Would this be a better board for that purpose than the SL?
I found this board to be a hair softer than my 09 SL, but I hear the SL is a bit softer nowadays so flex is probably push. This board is also poppier than I remember my SL being new (although that was a couple years and 50-or-so riding days ago). The biggest difference is that this board is noticeably lighter and less damp with a more aggressive sidecut. You could go either way, just going to depend on preference.
