My first board is a burton troop 155 ( no worries i am not a guy). This board has done everything I wanted it to do. I have been riding it the past two years and it withstood some pretty nasty falls. It's nice and bendy but not too much. The control I get is purely amazing. I find myself very comfortable on all terrain. However, the park ( it could just be me) is sometimes a challenge. The board is quite thin so getting those lucky breaks on rails doesn't happen often.
