Hi I’m Jenna. I just got off the Capita Birds of a Feather. I give this board 4 out of 5 stars. It’s really a solid board for that mid to advanced level girl who’s looking for something maybe she can take in the park but also wants to take everywhere on the mountain. It’s got a lot of pop and also a lot of response. You can take it to higher speeds and you’re not going to feel a lot of chatter, it is very responsive but it’s not something that’s too demanding for that intermediate level girl. If anything it will kind of help take your riding to the next level. But Kevlar down the sidewalls are also just provided a really damp ride so plowing through the crud, you know rougher conditions, it’s just really going to give you a solid ride overall.
