As a noob, year 2 with an option vinson/trinity fr stiffy...that thing beat my ass for about a season and a half; first time I've literally saw stars ...another time thought I had ripped some neck/head arterial due to sharp stabbing/burning pain in the neck and could taste blood but there wasn't any...and don't remember even biffing. Part of being taken for a ride, is that as a noob you don't have the aggressive attitude, the skills to see the snow/terrain, the body awareness to anticipate or have confidence in the board nor the skills to control the board. Thus the board knows/designed to do what it does best...and if high end...usually likes to go fast, react to the terrain, is stiffer so it literally bucks/rebounds and keeps going.
