Arbor claim that the Poparazzi has a woman-specific rocker system designed for riding the whole mountain; and we can't argue with that as it is a very competent all-rounder.
The Poparazzi's bloodline is still freestyle, but it holds an edge well in turning, is stable and handles speed well, especially over flats and cat tracks. The board gives an average performance on uneven terrain, crud and powder, although the spoon tips do raise the ends up.
With the Poparazzi, Arbor have created a playful soul that works well as a jib stick for the more advanced rider feeling loose and light underfoot.
Beginners will appreciate the forgiving rocker profile and will give confidence in learning ground tricks as it is ideal for butters and presses.
Park rats will appreciate the Poparazzi's freestyle qualities and it really can take on any feature that it comes to on a park lap. Responsive and effortless, freestyle is where its heart is at.
Boasting of an extruded base with a reclaimed bamboo inlay and 2 x4 ten pack inserts, Arbor have put their money where their mouth is when it comes to durability by offering a three year guarantee.
