Testers' Ratings

Easy to jib with its elastic flex and dynamic, fast-action tips, this is a board that spins and pops all over the shop. The big plus is its surprising versatility, with varied, precise handling.

It's always a pleasure to ride the ultra lively Headspace. Putting all its chips on speed and energy, this compact freestyle boards still holds the Ace in the packed crowd of freestyle all-rounders. An insanely fast board, agile and rearing to get airborne: you can almost hear the tips crackling with energy. The elastic flex gives it ultra responsive pop. Master of rotation, it's light and precise when you take off, and gives you perfect stability on landing. It won't let you down at high speed either, plus you can lay down a harder carve than with other boards in this category, as it shows versatile, effective handling. We like the way it accelerates during turns. An awesome freestyle board, and not elitist either, although you do need to stay alert and active to keep up with its lightning reactions.
