Yeah 2011. I think though its swings and roundabouts on it.
New shape means more float. For me, this is the main reason im getting rid of it. Im 175lbs, it struggles in all honesty for float at my weight. The 157 2012 would have been an improvement in that regard.
However, they extended the tbt a bit further through the board to make it feel more loose. I dunno how id feel about that in truth. Its plenty loose as is.
I guess if youre about 150-165lbs and love pop, this board is going to work out for you. But its just not enough board for me so i cant really work it. The nollie pop on it though is rather freaking insane. I know its complete twin and all that, but its the first board ive ridden thats just so explosive in the nose. Its also pure mischief.
