Testers' Ratings

You don’t expect such an instantaneous and responsive ollie on such a compact and powerful freestyle model. Remarkably powerful!

The Beast truly lives up to its name and is once again a favorite for its extremely dynamic freestyle performance. Featuring all the standards of a pro model, it's compact, peppy and has fast spin. Its active and very responsive nose and tail set the pace, delivering rebound and consistency, while the waist provides control and balance. Very lively underfoot, the board will always work with you no matter what you ask from it. Despite this, it's forgiving in edge transfer, which stops it from being too elitist. It’s awesome in jib, where its compact shape means you can really work with the nose and tail. Add to that its solid pop and nosepress for champions and you get an incredibly efficient freestyle board for every type of ride. It does need a certain amount of technical know-how though to get the most out of it.
