DC HKD - should I get one?!
Alright boys and girls
Ive just put a deposit down on a shiny new DC HKD all mountain board at my local board store. Id describe myself as an intermediate rider - Im fairly confident lashing down any grade piste, and a bit of powder, on my current board, a Palmer Clutch 06. The folk down the store (who also sold me my Palmer a few years back) said that this was the perfect board for me, if I like the performance, handling, and characteristics of my Palmer. All good.
However, a bit of research on the net has thrown up a few reviews and forum posts that are saying the DC is a crazy, balls out board, that needs to be tamed by an expert all mountain rider. Can any of you knowledgeable people verify or disprove this? Will it be a suitable board for me, a very average all mountain rider who likes speed but isnt insane?! Have my local store tried to fob me off with a board they want to get rid of? Any help much appreciated!
