Santa Cruz Allstar Vato Dato

Just signed up with this forum.........Anybody have any rant or raves about the Santa Cruz Allstar Vato Dato I tried searching didnt really come up with much I mainly free ride groomers or hit up train parks. I recently picked it up on sierra snowboard for $99 figure if its crap I can use it as a loaner board. Also I picked it up in a 150cm I currently ride a 153cm all mountain burton air (2008) is this going to be a issue at all. Im about 5"11 148lbs 9.5 boot.

I had the 07/08 allstar. It's good for its price and your board also has comply side wall which means the edge holds better in ice. I did have a problem where the top sheet cracked apart but they replace it under warranty without much fuss and with a bit of extra money i got the allstar xx anniversary edition. Its designed for use in park although I haven't really used it there yet. If your going on holiday take both boards as its likely too small in deep powder considering your height and weight.
If you want something for the ff piste i'd say a 156-160 its personal preference but I ride a 158 and I'm 5"8

Cool thanks for the info.... I figure I would use it for jibs and non pow days I'm thinking of also picking up a Palmar Classic as a poor mans pow board I have heard nothing but good things about it.
