The Prime is the perfect board when taking that step from renting to becoming a full time shred. This board will enhance your abilities and transform you into a rider that can tackle any run on the mountain. The Powercore and radial sidecut are a great combo for introductory riders. Nitro decks are known for their lightweight and responsive snap, so there is no sacrifice in construction. The only place where you are going to feel the difference is in the price.
