This is my second board, a 148. I purchased my first board, Liquid Twin 156, in 1999. I couldn't do anything besides sluggish craving. I rode it for couple of years til I broke my back (I injury it during work). After a few years, my back got better. So I went out to find a new board. In Feb. 2008 I went to SierraSnowBoard. The staffs were very helpful and they helped me picked an all mountain/ freestyle board that matched my body type and my riding style. They suggested Custom 151 but I wanted it to be easier to spin, so the staff suggested a 148. The first hours on this board sucked, cuz I forgot how to snowboard. After I got my groove back, I jumped from beginner to advance in a day. The only thing bad bout this board are: the top sheet scratches very easily. Now that I got better, I wanted a softer flexing board for easier butters and presses (nothing wrong with the board's flex, its just my new preference). Thanx Sierra
