Description Jussi designed this board to perform well where he rides, which, unfortunately for you, is everywhere. Backcountry kickers: he’s got entire video parts full of them. Park and contest hits: no problem there either, with the awards to back it up. Pipe: sorry, but he can deal there, too.
Sintered Indium Base: Gap-clearing speed, even when it’s warm.
Lite Triax: Light weight and torsional stiffness.
Super Fly II Core: Light, strong, and lively flex.
Dualzone EGD: Precise edge hold.
Summary: A good board, very stable at high speeds. It will def help you get more comfortable riding steep slopes. Holds an edge really well. Also can go pretty fast.
People say it's stiff and unforgiving but I haven't found that to be true. I'm learning new tricks on this board every day and it's a blast. Good all around board. Do not get this though if you want to go in the park. Pretty tough to press this board out.
Summary: I've been riding the 2003 Jussi for two years now and it's really the best buy ever. Now I've bought the 2005 model and will recieve it soon. The Jussi series is much beter to ride and to control than the 2002 Dragon (pipeboard) and it's much tougher than the Santa Cruz models.

Summary: I have a 2003 157 Jussi. This board is sick, super fast edge-to-edge, tons of pop and very sturdy for all your jibbing needs. I got this board after learning how to board on a Sims porject hex, which is a good beginners board (very flexible), so it took me sometime to get used to this board, being so much stiffer, and what i learned is that this board is unforgiving, you really need to have your moves ironed out before switching to this board.
Summary: I'm 5 10 and 160 pounds with size 10 boot. This board is exactly like a more powerful Burton Custom. You can use this board for anything. I've had the 2002 but now I have the 2003. If you aren't a really good snowboarder don't bother with this board, it will kick your ass.
