I have the same exact board and I still ride the shit out of it to this day, most recent being a fat ass powder day on Sunday. Its damp as hell and faster than what most slopes will allow. You can seriously mach on this board and it feels like your just cruising down the highway in Cadilac. Even in icy chunder it still has a smooth and stable feel as it just cuts right through the crap. Definatly a knee saver. In pow is where its real element is to be found. In mellower terrain I enjoy the Proto more than the Premier but when I'm looking for big lines then the Premier delivers. This board has gotten me out of some sketchy situations and you can trust this board will hold up no matter whats in front of you. Just point it and go. Landing cliffs, big drops or kickers into powder is just a blast and really confidence inspiring especially when the landing is anything but smooth. Coming out of a gully where it starts to get tracked out feels like your still riding fresh, your seriuosly cutting through other peoples tracks like they're not even there. You might feel a small thud on the bottom of your boots but thats it. The Premeir just soaks it all up. Its not the best park board due to its flex as its pretty stiff but I have never had a problem with in on kickers, pipe, boxes, rails or backyard shenanigans and its an absolute log destroyer. God I miss the logs of Beaver Creek, we just dont have them here in the Alps. So to sum up this board can pretty much rip anything you put in front of it. Tight trees, tight carves, big carves, big lines and big air or hitting some swingset rail in a schoolyard. As far as durablity is concerned mine has around 700 days on it and its still a beast. Although last year I finally cracked an edge but its still rideable and I dont even notice it but at the same time I wonder just how much longer can it hold up as its still my go to board.
So I hope you enjoy and if you ever consider selling it let me know, seriously.
Man, the Internet sounds like a tuff place to ride.
