Well if you get a chance on it let me know what you think. I'm looking for a new setup. Haven't tried many boards. Still riding an old 170 never summer legacy. I need something that will handle better through the trees. Hesitant to buy something without demoing it.

holy shit a 170? i can see why your wanting new board. Yeah i dont normally buy boards without demo first but this wont be the first or even second arbor i've ridden only the r=second i've owned, so i feel comfortable enough knowing that the board will do what they say it does.

You want to ride tree lines, yeah get a shorter board with a mid/wide depending on your weight and foot size then go tear it up.

k2 also makes skis, boots and bindings for both sports, helmets, goggles, outerwear, ski poles. My point being i've always been a believer of the "jack of all trades, master of none" motto. Granted their equipment might be good but it'll never be great. Not to mention just like burton they're industrializing the sport which is a huge turn off for me, yeah its a great business practice and sure they make alot of money doing it but it doesn't sit well with me..

anyways that's just my opinion, and admittedly i did some searching around for reviews on the ultra dream and couldnt find anyone who had something bad to say about it. quite the opposite really but they were also staff to board shops so they might be bias, who knows.

Last years SL was pretty nice. Paired with Cartels. Agree about some of the graphics though, don't like the red Cobra at all, sick board though.

NS are pretty rare in Europe still and this set up got some interested looks in France earlier this year.
