Default Anyone riding Arbor?

So I couldn't help myself and just bought the last 149 Arbor Cadence I could find. Reviews I have read and mountain buzz I have overheard tell me this is a great board making company and they ride great...

Any thoughts from you all?

My previous board was stolen this weekend so I guess the upside of that is this time of year being a good season to upgrade.

Thanks for any comments! I have a 60 day return policy on the board.

Lots of people ride Arbors. They're great boards. If I didn't have a Never Summer, I'd have an Arbor.

Arbor boards are great. You can't go wrong and I doubt you'll be disappointed.

I love Arbor. I ride a 2010 Arbor Del Ray and love it.

Demo'd an Arbor A-frame and was shocked at how light it was compared to my every day board. It felt great. They have to be some of the most beautiful boards on the mountain.

I saw an Arbor A-Frame for sale at the last expo I was at. $600.

It was the first time since my g/f cheated on me 6 years ago that I had contemplated killing someone and running of with their stuff.

My husband rode an Arbor Roundhouse for most of last season. Most stable, responsive board he's been on.

I get the feeling that Arbor boards tend to be stiffer than equivalent snowboards from other manufacturers, but I could be way off base there. My first board was the Arbor Eden and I could not learn to turn on it. Bought a softer board after 5 days or so and was linking turns immediately. Took the Eden out again at the end of that season and I stiff found it stiff and hard to turn. I just think the Eden needed a stronger, more aggressive rider.

Regardless, they are sold boards with beautiful topsheets.

thanks for the replies! I am a tad concerned about the stiffness, but time will have to tell at this point, although I consider my riding sorta agressive. At least I try to be. I should be smart and demo one before committing -- if I can find that here in the East.

Arbors make some of the best boards out there. I'd take one over many of the boards that people on this forum rave about. As with any board, it'll break in with real usage. Keep in mind that most people that complain about overly stiff boards that really aren't that stiff weigh nothing and/or don't ride very hard.
