I started boarding in 2015, using a Burton - catching edge after edge. This year, 2016, I bought a Bataleon Whatever board (and a fun.kink), no edge catches thanks to the TBT and my boarding progressed so much. I flipping love it. The board has a nice mound of flex, looks fantastic, easy to ride. You become brand loyal when you get a Bataleon board, I love them and can't wait to see their new lines. I'd love to try more boards! Magic Carpet, The Jam, Evil Twin, and beyond!!!
