Slash Happy Place 152

First impressions, not a full review.
150lbs
K2 Enders size 8
Flow Five Se's

To start, this board has this glass lay up that when the board bends up tip to tail it gets slightly concave edge to edge, then bend it the opposite way, like boardslide a rail, and it gets convex edge to edge. I couldn't really feel it with the limited time I spent on the deck. So if you were worried it would feel bad, no. I really can only feel good. The deck is like a mid flex park feel with enough give in the tips to butter and press into but not so much that you'd ever go over the ends. It has a nice sweet spot in the middle of the tip that is easy to get into and stay on. The shining aspect of the board is it's stability. By this point in the day the steep section was pretty chopped up from it being the only real steep section. So it had some harder conditions to deal with, not to mention it was only a 52. Damn. Seriously the most stable 52 park deck I've been on in a good long while. And it'll rail a turn. Pop was a bit above average but nothing especially shocking.

Overall impression: I hope they never change this deck. In fact I told they Yes/Jones/Slash rep that exact thing. Super rad park deck that rides the mountain well too. Very, very well done. And I can't help but think that tip shape would be killer in deep snow...

Snowboarding Is...

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