Long radius carves are probably the easiest on this board as well as small radius turns (kinda carvey but sometimes skiddy).

Damp as fuck. It was slushy shit snow and it charged right through it. Hardly rattled me while going fast.

It can also be a bit grabby, I should detune my edges for this. I fell once today because of this. I was breaking heelside, and the board just grabbed the snow out of nowhere...Well, stopping instantly while breaking down from 30mph can only result in one thing. FACEPLANT. Hahaha. I think I flew forwards maybe 15 feet. Fuck that shit hurt when my adams apple landed on my fist.

Not as noodley as I first rode it. I widended out my stance to the max and this helped out a lot. Fucked with my ollies but helped with landings and coastin down mountains.
What size boots do you ride? Do you suffer from a lot of drag while making deep carves? I have 11s and got the wide version and it is noticeably less quick from edge to edge, but I thought I needed it for the larger feet... I don't have any drag though and can really get my belly draggin'. I'm 6'3", 180 riding the 158 Proto CTX (wide).
