As Arbor puts it, the Push “is designed for women who surf mountains.” And after some rigorous big mountain testing our riders can certainly testify to the amazing ride of this board. It’s light and stable, so you hit big lines with confidence and not feel like you’re being dragged down by driftwood. No, this poplar core and bamboo top-sheet are carved with precision to offer a nice pop and feel.
The board is designed specifically for riding natural terrain and riding it fast. Don’t expect a park machine, but instead a surprisingly agile and classic all-mountain ride that will bring out your inner Zen.
