Default Review: 158 Ride Berzerker JBlauvelt Pro Model 2012

Conditions:

Weather - low temp and overcast with a bit of snowfall

Slopes - hardpack and ice

Park - ice

Setup:

158 Ride Berzerker Jake Blauvelt Pro Signature Series 2012, Ride Ill Eagle 2012

STOP PRESS! You must try this board at first opportunity. The moment I strapped in a smile started eating up my face. And the smile only got bigger...

The Berzerker has (for Ride) a totally new camber profile - All Mountain Hybrid - traditional camber between the bindings, a little rocker in the tail, and a bigger rocker in the nose.

The board is ultralight, ultraresponsive (me and the board were one)and ultraversatile - whatever I wanted to do - carving, straightlining, hitting kickers, popping around on the slopes - the board was an absolute fucking champ at it.
I didn't get a chance to take it out into the backcountry - the place Blauvelt calls home. I would hazard a guess that's where his pro model does its finest work.

I also got some crappy photos of it.
