Default skunk ape

Hey all,

Got my first day of this sweet sweet board under my belt, what a ride and still can't get over just how much attention was put into building a board, WOW. The magna traction was like riding rails but on ice/hard pack. I kept waiting for a slip out but it never did even at warp speed, but I aien't going to dull those edges.

Going from a 165cm to a 190 was a difference, I had to put more effort into front edge turns and slow powder turns where a lot tougher. But the gain in stabiliy to bomb down a hill in a flagship was well worth it. I loved that going goofy foot you still had some board in front of you, opened up a whole new style of ride, such smooth lean turns.

Yah I could never go back to non magna traction or < 170cm. I'm hooked.
