I thought it was lackluster. The pop was too hard to get too and I wanted a deeper sidecut for how stiff it was. I had oodles more fun on the Flow Rush. Still a stiff twin all mountain freestyle board, but It had more snap and could turn harder.

Well I am a 5' 8" 220lb football player so I have a lot of leg strength, do you think this will make a difference?

As far as getting to the pop yeah. But it wont change the sidecut. Super stable in a straight line though.
