For the past year, I rode the Divine, so the Essence has taken a bit to get used to. I find that it slides easier, probably because it is so light. I think it will last me a couple of years until I reach the intermediate-advanced level.

It’s a good board for the beginner to intermidiate level. The board is very stable and is a little hard to get good air on it.
Reviewer: Ally Baumann
Cool board and great for beginners. Hard to get air and pull 180s. It goes across the wake pretty good~but really sucks for doin olleys and gettin air!
Reviewer: Hannah Thomas
I like this board alot. It is hard to get air but thats ok. I love the graphics, they are better than last years’.
Reviewer: Angela McLeod
I really like this board. Very stable and easy to maneuver. I have no trouble getting an excellent pop of the wake and landings are a breeze. I have lots of control and feel like I can attempt anything. After reading some of the other reviews, I was hesitant about this board due to the comments on the pop. After I rode it, I had no doubt that the Essence was the board for me.

I really like this board..but there is one problem..it is VeRy hard to get any air on this board! Other than that..its a good board. When you do get air the landings are good. The graphics are better then last years too.

You can get air off this board, i’ve done it a few times. You just gotta have the right wake size and pop.It’s a great beginner board, it made it really easy for me.

Reviewer: Sydney V
This board is a good beginner board. You can’t get air off this board at all. It’s only good for riding for beginners.
