Highlife 2013

I just purchased a Ride 164 Highlife 2013 for POW only. I am 179cm, 95kg, last time I tackled real POW my Ride 163 Freestyle board l had plenty of problems keeping the nose up and I weighed a little less.

This board will be used with Ride RX Bindings. I am hoping for big POW on my next trip and I especially invested in using this board only for this purpose. I really like using super responsive boards so I am hoping it will go well on groomers.

Probably a useless board for use in Australia as we get mainly hard pack ice.

I am expecting big leg burn on hard groomers but I love POW and jumping on soft groomers and bombing down small cliffs so it should be worth the $550AUD it cost me to get it here.

My other board I intend to take and be used for first time will be a Travis Rice Libtech either a 157 or 161.5. They tell me the 161.5 is better for groomers and also great for POW as I see Travis has already proven

I already have a Park board, Force 155(Old Aussie brand), poor board but very flexi, I call it my wrecking board, usually it wrecks me in the park somewhere.
