i know its 2013 but i love mine and they're still some on the market....

stoked on this deck. i buy my boards a season behind. so just started riding it this season. perfect medium flex. Really responsive. park feel that can tackle most different terrains. not sure i would call it a free ride board but it still a laser sword.

bobsy852 I'm REALLY interested in Ply board as my first snowboard, particularly the 153 (donuts and coffee) model!!
However I'm worried that it will be too advanced for me? - Snowboarding at least once a month in my local indoor slope since I started back in January 2011. Just about starting now to learn some freestyle - small jumps and flat spins on the ground.... I will be taking lessons in freestyle before next season properly comes around so ever advancing....although I'll want a board which can do a good run down a piste when I want to try challenge my mates to some speed?
Or is the Ply a pure park board?

EDIT: If it's a park board - would Lauri Pro Tone be better suited to my level of experience? Or will I grow out of it too quickly?

fattrav Ah, Snow Planet, forgot about that one. I lived in Auckland for about 2 years, rode ther often. Nothing like walking out of a big freezer into 30 deg C heat in summer.

Yeah, will be interesting to see what it rides like on the mountain with a bit of speed up.

stinkyjim Auckland has a indoor ski field that runs year round, but the Ruapehu and the South Island fields won't open until late June.

On the topic of the board, DC with kind enough to send me out a demo of the 153.75 Ply. I tried it out at our indoor hill on man made snow, which doesn't give you the best indication of how it will handle all Mountain conditions, but gives you a good idea, especially in terms of jibbing etc.

I found to do be extremely stable on boxes and jump take-off/landing. Great ollie pop, I found edge hold a little difficult until I got used to the strange camber profile. I personally really enjoyed it, it really fitted with my personal riding style.

What secret part of NZ are you in that has snow and an open mountain at the moment? Winters forgotten to turn up everywhere in NZ so far.
