Board: IPP Harrow
Camber Option: Minimalist Camber. Traditional camber, just lower.
Bindings: Ride Rodeo Medium
Stance: Goofy 21in Wide, 12/-6
Boots: DC Tucknee size 8
My Weight: 155lbs
Resort: Copper Mtn
Conditions: A mix of overcast and bluebird and warmer spring conditions. Snow was soft and a little slushy.
Flex: Overall just below a middle flex for your average park board with a little bit more give in the tips. Stiffens up just before the bindings then a bit softer again between the feet. Abundant torsional flex, but not too much.
Stability: Well I rode the 47 and honestly outweigh the board. That said, while it did skip around and wouldn’t really hold a line pointing it, it was still relatively controllable. It faired better than expected for a downsized jib deck. At slower speeds it never buckled under carving forces and felt smooth.
Ollies/Pop: The right amount of snap to always get you up on or over the feature you’re approaching and not so much you’ll accidentally overshoot or get bucked out of a press. Exactly what it needed to be.
Butterability: Solid. I mean it is a tiny park board. With the dialed snap it has the butters were great. Locked in right where they should just outside the binding, and you could hold it as long as you want then snap out.
Carving: The sidecut feels well suited to the rest of the board but wasn’t really a standout feature. In this size I couldn’t really euro carve it as it would just wash out at speeds, but quick setup turns and snappy quick carves had some nice energy.
Rider in Mind: Park kid looking for something more versatile than you’re basic jib board.
Personal Thoughts: It was actually really refreshing to get on something like this that was so dialed. It did everything it should pretty much exactly how it should. It’s a no nonsense, no frills, good solid twin. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a midish flex twin that isn’t sending 60ft jumps.
