I was riding the 2011 version on this board in january last year and I also have never ridden rocker before that and it was a really fun overall board but it was really flex which made speed a little bumpy. I liked how the board carved, nice deep carve turns on it although it took a little getting used to. I really liked it for jumps and flatland stuff too. Hope I can find a good board to rent around keystone/breck, any recommendations? I rented from avalanche sports in brick in 2009 and they were nice but not sure if they have the kind of board ill want this time around.
