This Rossignol snowboard is perfect for the casual snowboard. It is very affordable in price but it has lasted me over four years of snowboarding (going about 4-5 times a year). It is a dark blue snowboard with a blue wave-like design that comes through the board. Considering the price, this board is suprisingly durable. I have not had to do any maintenance on it yet and it still performs as well as it did on day one. I wouldn't recommend it for hard core freestyle riders, but for the casul rider it is a good fit. The board is very light overall because it is thin, but the ride control is on par with other more expensive snowboards. I have my wave equipped with Burton Cartels and honestly I can't tell a difference when I ride with my friend's board who paid about three times more than I did. I definitely recommend this board for the casual rider who doesn't want to break the bank.
