This directional twin board kills it riding all conditions. Rocker helps with maneuverability and adds a surfy ride while seeking out powder at your local resort. While it floats through soft pack, it also holds an edge on hardpack due to Arbor’s System Rocker.

This kind of shape reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail and makes it so that the outside contact point can hold an edge when needed.

This is a great board geared towards intermediate to advanced riders looking to advance their skills riding any type of terrain. Medium flex gives the board a playful and poppy feeling while the directionality of the board lets you charge any line in your sights.

Overall, this was a great board to ride off the groomers. Maneuvering through tight trees was effortless, and riding powder was just like surfing. The board was playful and took little work to engage a solid carve through the hard packed snow. The price is hard to beat for how well Arbor boards are made, so we recommend this board to anyone looking to for a good beginner or intermediate board that can go everywhere.
