Nice to hear that! I would definately say that this would also be a very good first board to buy. It is forgiving, but when you are ready to step your game up, it can rip it as hard as you can dish it out.

I am glad you are as happy with this board as I am!

Thank you! I will definately try and let everybody know how it holds up in time. Yah you are right not too many of them on here, but I just couldnt resist this board for the money and I am so glad I bought it.

Although, if I had to find one thing I dont like about it, it would be that it only has 10mm of setback, which I would like it to have a little more because I tend to like more nose than tail but Its not bad at all and I can definately live with it.

Review of 2011 Artec Gabe Taylor !!!

Hello everybody, this is my first post here, long time lurker. I just wanted to do a review of this board since there seems to be very few reviews or information on this board, and when I was looking for reviews on this board before I bought it, I couldnt find squat! so here goes:

Board: Artec Gabe Taylor 163 Wide (it also comes in regular sizes, I just got bit feet)

My specs: 6' 195 Lbs.

Conditions tested in: Groomed runs, Powder, Hard pack

First off, I would like to say that I abosolutley loved this board, and it surprised the crap out of me! My last board was a Burton Custom and in my opinion I liked this board much better than my custom. I bought this board because I needed a new one but was on a budjet and couldnt spend more than $350 on a board, and I got it for $300. So for the money, this board really performs, plus it has a sintered base and is super fast. It has traditional camber and I would like to say that this thing can carve its ass off! Super smooth carves fast or slow, it did it all very well. It also held a super good edge better than the Burton ever did in my opinion. In the powder, it was very similar to my Burton did very well for a cambered board and I loved it there too. Cant say how it did in the park as I am not a park rat but I did hit a couple jumps with it and holy crap this thing is super stable! That also surprised me. It seems to have a medium flex to it so it pretty much handled everything that I used it for very well, even in super fast hard carves It held its line very well, like it was on freaking rails. I am loving everything about this board right now.
So if you are in the market for a new board and you want an excellent DO IT ALL board that will (in my opinion) perform as well or better than others in the 500 to 600 dolloar range, I would definately reccomend an Artec Gabe Taylor!

If anybody has any questions for me on how it rode, let me know, I will be glad to answer.
