Hi, last year I used the 2011 JP Walker 151 (1,70 m, 65 Kg) and I thought it was a great ride. I bought the board without testing it in a end of season sale and used it for during a sunny but cold week in Italy, end March. In my opinion it's a good all around/park board, mid flex (a bit to the stiff side) wich was quite good to ride the whole mountain. I mostly spent the days in the park and found it very good for jibs and kickers. Also liked to play around in the pistes and was quite stable at high speeds (for my surprise). Before I rode a cambered board (Burton Custom) and tested some rocker board also (GNU PP, Burton Hero, etc...) and the 0 camber from the Stepchild JP was a very good compromise between both worlds...
PS: Don't know the upgrades of this year's model...
PS2: I use it with Burton Restricted Cartel's and it's a good all around set up...
