The Full Review:
This board smacks! It has all the features one could ask for, all in one board! The Ember has a nice big nose for floating in powder, but when you want to lean into a sick deep turn, it grabs and goes! The board has some camber in the backseat, so you feel nice and stable and it holds edge as you get into a deep carve.
I felt that this board also had some good float in it too. I would ride this board a little shorter than one normally would, given the volume shifted style. If you’re going to continuously be in deeper snow conditions, go a hair bigger. I felt like I was surfing the snow, but I was stable and secure. This is one of the funnest snowboards I’ve had the pleasure of riding.

Stable and surfy!
Fat nose chatters a bit at higher speeds.
The Bottom Line:
Hands down one of the funnest boards I’ve ever ridden and everyone should have one. Tell everyone.
