Wasn't doing any spins, and I wasn't in the park. It was mostly little lips and drops in the trees. The landings ranged from steep and soft pack to flat and powder.

I have a tendancy to sometimes wash out a little and butt check after hitting a decent jump/drop with speed and then trying to initiate the next turn. It felt a little easier to do that with the Raygun.

Anyway, it was a fun ride for sure. I'm going to have to play around with other rocker variations to see what I may want with my next board.
