I actually had a chance to test out a custom on a Burton demo day last week. It is a defintely a great all around board. It def has some flex in the nose and tail, but if you want a board geared more for park riding this may not be the board for you. It was great at speeds with no chatter, and held an edge really well. It is defintey gearred more for all around all mountain and resort versatilty. It can handle the park, but if your main focus is going to be the park, I don't think I would want this board unless you wanted that all around versatilty.
