Im curious if anyone has ridden an element (specifically the traditional cambered CX version)

it sounds like its mostly for mountain riding, but I can only find a few reviews on it. How does it handle (if at all) the park? Jumps? Jibs?

I just cam all over my keyboard cause I have boners for Arbor. You want the Coda and they do make legit decks.

Beautiful boards that ride great but don't hold up that well. The bases are SOFT (at least on the Element). Have p-tex handy.

What size are you looking for? I've got a 165 Element I'll sell you.

I have a Arbor Nightrain that has been rock solid for two seasons now. 6' 210 lbs.

I carve the shit out of mine.

Nivek, I picked up a new 156 Westmark on ebay for under $300. I'm going to set it up with those Shaka's for next season.

Bindings are a little on the heavy side, but that's a setup I'd ride. Smaller though, cause I'm small.
