Fantastic. Even having a Slayblade at his disposal my buddy who's a rep out here chose the Ultra to go up against my other buddy on his Flow Maverick in a flat out speed run. I tested it at Loveland in Nov with ski racers chopping up the steeper runs with their stupid obnoxious tight turn. Powered through the chop and held an edge all the way through. Lay it over and drive into the hyper progressive infinite sidecut and it rails. I love that deck.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Found the K2 online for $400 available in all sizes. Do you think i'd be better with the 164 considering the huge nose. I am used to riding a 161
