164 isn't that bad to throw around. Plus, in the powder the CS's kicked up nose makes it surprising easy to get into turns.
The thing I like most about the CS is the stiff tail. Jumping this thing in powder is an absolute blast. The stiff tail gives you plenty to land on, but the big fat kicked up nose makes it nearly impossible to sink. Every pow day we all see guys going over the handle bars and cartwheeling when jumping in pow because they sink the nose. I haven't done that yet on the CS. You don't even have to think about it. You can just jump and land the same as you would hitting a kicker in the park.
But the part about Capita saying that this is a board you can ride switch, well they're full of shit. I guess since it's not a swallowtail that it's possible but it ain't fun. Granted my switch riding is relatively weak, but you better be damn good to even think about any switch riding on this thing. No way I'd land switch on this board. That would end badly for me.
