My wife would agrees with you review. She's been riding the push for 3 years. The swoon offered something new and is positioned the same on the arbor website. Just wanted to see what the difference is from a regular person, firsthand. It was good to read about the gnu, we brought her boots to try them with the binding last night.I was going to post my review but someone did it for me. :thumbsup: I love the Push absolutely the best board I have ridden so far. I thought about going for the swoon but I am glad I went with regular camber, it holds an edge so well, carves the mountain wonderfully. I didn't have any of the issues that most people say happen with traditional camber. You will catch an edge if you aren't careful but that will happen with any board. I wouldn't push for the Push over the Swoon its just personal preference.
My wife has the swoon 151, she is 130# and we mainly ride in NY (no pow). I picked it because Arbor told me it was the women's version of the Coda. Tons of posts about the Coda here, so I got it for her hoping that meant it was a fun, easy turning board that could rail a good turn. My wife is a mellow rider and loves it.My wife would agrees with you review. She's been riding the push for 3 years. The swoon offered something new and is positioned the same on the arbor website.
