Board: Interior Plain Project Harrow
Camber Option: Traditional Camber. If you have to ask what this is, you need to read another review.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 188lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, low winds, warm temps, spring snow which was mashed potatoes in spots and firm in others.
Flex: Just under a middle of the road park flex leaning more towards snappy and responsive and less like soft and playful. The tips have an immense sweet spot for playing around and pressing, then it stiffens up a bit just before the insert packs through the middle. There’s a fair amount of torsional give to it which allows you to center flex the board better.
Stability: The boards stable to a point. You will feel the board bend to every contour in the snow, but it won’t buckle. This means it’s responsive and then adding a mellow traditional camber to it you get some snap.
Ollies: This board has one of the easiest to initiate traditional cambers I’ve ever been on. It wants to snap with ease. The more you load it the more you pop, it’s that simple. Feeling lazy? Then be lazy and still get some snap.
Pop On Jumps: This board is well rounded enough to hit just about any size of jump. It has the snap you need to get off the lip and make it past the death knuckle.
Butterability: With the coupling of a mellow traditional camber and its flex this board is a butter worthy dream. Press into the board with ease and know it will still snap you out of whatever you’re doing but not make you muscle it around.
Jibbing: Slow or fast, take your pick. This board has a great sweet spot in the tips for locking into presses. Getting sideways the mellow camber hugs rails, boxes, and tubes.
Carving: If you really drive your back knee into the board and center flex the board you can get it to wash out of a hard carve. Otherwise the sidecut rips it and grips it with ease.
Rider in Mind: The all around park ripper that likes a mellow yet snappy park board that can do it all.
Personal Thoughts: I haven’t been on this board in a little while and it was refreshing to get on it. This is a board for the masses. It has a camber profile that’s fun and responsive but won’t overwhelm you. The sidecut is perfectly blended to rip a hard turn here or there while still being easy to initiate a turn when going slow. Overall it’s just a great deck that shouldn’t be overlooked.
