I am an east coast rider, although hoping this season will bring alot of snow and less ice. I wanted a board that was more flexible and that could hold an egde on ice, but one that was easy to maneuver as well. Its my first board purchase and have only ridden used boards in the past.

The comments so far are very helpful thanks. I guess I should have gone for a bananna or rocker instead of the 2013 Womens Camp Seven Featherlite board. Here;s to hoping I win that contest so I can get a rocker to hold edge on ice!
