The Raptor is one of the best boards you can find,
There are few boards you cann't get wrong with them the Raptor is for sure one of them.
Just take the right size for your weight.
1.very very smooth on chops
2.curving abilities is very good.
3.pop is very nice especially if you take into account the softness of the board.
4.landing are smooth, and jumps are easy.
5.switching to toe side is very easy and smooth.
6.upwind ability is good.
7.overpower, there is no such a thing with this board, it can hold any power.
8.and yes there is no such a thing spray into the face.
