Compared with Cab's Trigger and Squad and North's Whip.
Found that the Xenon had a very direct feel, fast and stable edge to edge and it held up the speed in the arcs very well.
It is also quite forgiving and if you put too much weight on your front foot while in the drop, it won't dig up. Also in choppy conditions it doesn't bounce around and keeps my knees alive.
When you need to pick up the speed and fast, the vidra can boost forward in a sec.
What i liked the most was the fun the board delivered. I had a smile smeared on my face every second on it.
I was a little bit worried about construction so i emailed the guys over at Xenon with some questions. Kudos for Xenon customer service for replying after only a day.
This is what they have answered:Light EPS core with wooden stringer, the entire deck is covered by high
density foam used in aviation industry with real bamboo on top of it in
Prisma, and real black Ebony wood in Vidra, all laminated with fiber
glass/epoxy raisin, sanded and polished.
The old ball and chains was convinced... now i am getting a new toy
