I own one of his first year models (a 162) and really like it. Very damp and stable, but it did not have much pop. It has a pretty large SCR (9m), so if you like to haul ass and link big sweeping turns, then you might like it. I demoed this years model (the 162) and liked it WAY better than my old one. Again, long SCR, but I could maneuver the board a bit more easily. It was also lighter and had a ton more snap to it, and was still very damp and stable. I think they put a different core into the board for this year. It is a very stiff board, so do not expect it to turn easily if you are a light dude. Don't even bother taking it into the park, but, it was entertaining to do so none the less.
I hope this helps.
