The DC 156 feels like it has a little bit of the Mega in a full camber package but with a lot of its own thing going on too. Is straight up camber, very old school and technical but has a very new school, light poppy dynamic flex underfoot. Other than edge hold the 156 did a great job at park to mountain freestyle riding. Our demo was much softer than a 7 out of 10 so not sure if this will be the same in production.

Now that DC is made by Capita’s Mothership the personalities of all their boards have changed.  When they were getting made by GST (last time we tried them) they were super stiff and mean like all GST made boards were.  Now they are light, and very poppy underfoot. The 156 is just like I described in the last sentence and the first thing we would say is this demo model felt much softer than a 7 out of 10 rating. More like a 4 to 5.  As you can see here there is a good bow of camber from tip to tail.
