Read the Review Transcript: I am Rob just got off the Rossi Taipan. I give this board 4/5 stars it's a good really solid board for that beginner to low side intermediate. Even a solid intermediate rider it's really easy to initiate turns. Really solid underneath you you're going to have a lot of confidence putting this board on edge. Still being more of an intermediate low side intermediate Board it's a little soft at the higher speeds it's not going to hold and edge quite as well, but really a nice easy fun board for that beginner to low side even solid intermediate all mountain rider.
