Excellent board to learn quickly
I have the 2019 model, so my review is based on that board with the assumption that the 2020 model is roughly the same.

I'm 5'8'', 140-145lbs, and I got the 151cm model.

I picked up this board back in November 2019, and since then I've ridden it 10 times. I started the season as a complete beginner, and my goal was to try a little bit of everything: freestyle, all-mountain, and park. Now, I'd say I'm a decently solid intermediate/advanced rider. Riding regular, I feel comfortable with most black diamonds, and riding switch, I feel comfortable with most blues. My friends say that I learned relatively quickly, and I credit a lot of it to this board.

I don’t have a whole lot of negatives to say about it, but here are a few things I noticed:
-I feel a good deal of chatter when going fast. This could probably be mostly attributed to the camber profile (sizeable reverse camber regions), but when comparing it to my friends’ boards, the Rossignol District feels a fair bit thinner and lighter. Rossignol gives this board a 5/10 flex rating, but I feel like it might really be closer to a 4 or even a 3.
-It doesn’t seem to have great durability. The base seems to get scratched up pretty easily, and the edges get a good amount of dings. I rode on a somewhat icy day, and discovered two deep gouges in my base at the end of the day. Might have been bad luck, but a little surprising nonetheless.
-Speaking of ice, I feel like this board struggles a bit more than most in icy conditions. It doesn’t have anything fancy like “Magne-Traction” or “Grip-Tech,” and the edges aren’t made of the best material, so I have a really hard time carving into ice and getting a grip. Even after getting the edges re-sharpened, I feel like they dulled pretty quickly.

That being said, this is a beginner board. All of the things I didn’t love about this board seem to just be limitations of a board aimed more towards the beginner level range. Beginners probably don’t want to be going very fast, and probably shouldn’t be trying to learn the basics in icy conditions.

For me, the Rossignol District definitely served its purpose as a learning deck, and ironically, it is the reason why I feel like I’ve outgrown it so quickly. I’ll be looking to upgrade next season. I got my District for $179, and at that price it was absolutely worth it. If you can get this board for cheap, and spend the money you saved on nicer boots, I think you’ll be very happy with your starter setup.

Tldr; If you’re a beginner looking to get up to speed quickly, this is the board for you. If you’re anything else, you should look elsewhere.
