I don't know who this guy is, and I may be a bit off base, but basing my opinion/purchase on a review that starts with:

"I'm not a great boarder. I fall on my butt, knees, shoulders and arms, but the surf like feel and tiger-claw like grip of this board make me feel like I can ride much more aggressively without facing dire consequences"

..seems a bit silly.

Humm...

Zeppelin is one of my favorite groups.. boardwise K2's staple board from forever.. can't go wrong.

Mullet's are awesome.. I used to have a girlfiend that had one! (Ok.. that was a lie, as far as you know). Lib is sub of GNU and if you want to rock a bananna with a mullet I think that would be awesome also.. at least it's a converstion piece. Technically I know nothing about it but the name rocks.

the mullet is a tapered powder-specific board, just so you know...
