2011-2012 Ride DH?

What do you guys think of the 2011-12 Ride DH board?
I see a lot of them at my local hill.
I was considering getting one for next year as a park board>
I have heard a lot but if anyone owns one/has ridden on I could use some opinions?
Is it true that Ride Snowboards are bad construction like I hear or are they solid decks?
I really like the design of this board.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

From personal experience, they are alright. My Ride Society had suffered a chip in the nose and in the base the first couple days of using it. I hadn't hit any rocks or shrapnel that I can remember. Besides that, my board does not suffer like a lot of other boards out there, which have huge chips on the edge.

I'd say by now, they have improved a lot.

I would get it for riding pipe or hucking huge kickers but being cambered and one of Ride's stiffest decks its not going to be great for rails etc. For park I would pick up a crush, kink or a machete
