Info wanted about Bic Electric Rock

I have the opportunity to buy a used Electric Rock for a good price.  I
am looking for some feedback about this board.  Up till now, I have been
sailing on an O'Brien ProAm, a high-volume, low-performance short board.
I have no problems waterstarting but have been struggling with my jibes
for several seasons.  I just can't do it!  Several people have indicated
that the ProAm is a difficult board to jibe.  So I am looking for another
board that is shorter, lower volume, more suitable to chop such as at
Rio Vista, and most importantly, easy to jibe.  I realize jibing mostly
has to do with the skill of the sailor and I don't expect the board to
jibe by itself, but I don't want to invest in another board that is known
to be difficult to jibe.

So, any comments would be appreciated.

You should go for the Bic electric Rock, it's really nice to jibe.
It's one the best boards to buy for a beginner to short boards.
It's cheap it's fast and easy to sail.
