I'm really no freestyler myself, but still agree with Taty. The Flare very much feels like a freestyle board and not a freerider. And even to me who are only trying the simplest freestyle tricks the Flare still feels easy to jump and slide. But the slalom rocker surely also makes the board fast and early planing.
As for 06->07, the volume distribution is a bit different with thicker tails, I think.
