The Full Review:
I had some high expectations for this board. With the release of the War Pig, the Super Pig is a step up into the all-mountain world. The Super Pig definitely doesn’t lack in the stiffness category. In fact, I feel that it is important that one definitely rides this board shorter than a normal board. For instance, I rode the 148, and it felt like I was making turns on a 158.
I had a hard time controlling this board. Maybe it was because I should’ve been on a shorter board, but regardless it outperforms most humans, I believe. It is a fun ride when you figure it out. If you want something stiff and powerful, this is an excellent board to buy.
Amazing edgehold, extremely stable.
Rides bigger than one would expect, so get sizing right!
The Bottom Line:
This is a great board for a rider that prefers something on the stiff and responsive side.
