Well I took the beast to the hill this weekend! What shitty coverage there was on the one open run. But what the hell. Why not? I have to say the first turn on it bucked me off. Didn't know if it was being under prepared for this season or just underestimating the power required for the board. Well it was lack of power. Saddled up and flew down the hard pack with ease. Obviously in so cal there was no pow to be found at this point of the season. But... I can say there is little to no power loss in the cut tail on the groom. The bitch held on just fine. And... She was rocket Fast!

I will report back later this season on powder performance. I have high expectations. Just hope they're not too high.

.....2 years later......

I finally have an update! First off, F this drought we have had the last few years. Its been really bad. But...this last weekend we finally had a nice dump. about 3 feet in the trees, but really heavy and sticky. That didn't really matter though. The beast is a beast. So glad I cut that board. Absolutely flawless in powder. Id say its a bit big and stiff for tight tree runs but it is, afterall, a plank. The advantage though...cut through chop with ease. It was very damp, almost to a fault. I wasn't prepared for it! By the second or third run I was used to it and loved that I didn't have to shift my weight at all riding this board. Maybe next time I'll get a video or something. Moral of the story...expectations highly exceeded.
