Board is still killer. I have brutalized this and it barely shows wear. Top sheet is tough, edges are like diamonds. Super easy to press, there is a stiff spot at the tip/tail for pop, but if you load up on it, you can get out of this spot and it's a noodle. On urban setups, it wraps around rails nicely. You can really load up on lip slides and spin out with ease.

Easily the best park board I have used to date. As a warning though, don't use it on icy days.

bought the 2016 Disaster a few days ago. Cyber-monday impulse buy...always wanted a disaster and this seemed good a time as any.

Will post a review once I ride it, but just wanted to say that they dropped the weight to 5 pounds. They also upgraded the base this year to "extruded+", which I'm guessing is basically the "synthruded" base they used to have on the goliath (2555 molecular weight). They'r also back to making their boards in Austria (couple years back, they were being made in China...probably at the same factory as K2, Ride, etc, but still not Austria)
