I can only speak for the Charlie and I love mine. It's a very surfy ride and directional I would say (I never even try to ride it switch). Given its profile, and taper if you size correctly its unsinkable. I am 160lbs in street clothes and I ride a 158cm. I ride a lot of tight trees on pow days at my local hill so 158 gives me super float, but I can still get in and out of trees with out issue. I do very well with jumps and drops on this board as well, due to the newer models having the carbon strings in the nose, helps you from going over the handle bars. I also find the board to be very light weight. So, if you want a less freestyle, more surfy board you can't go wrong with Sir Charles.
