Default K2 Slayblade review by a women

Hello guys,

I'm Karlijn, 23 years old and only boarding for three years.
This year I started searching for my first snowboard!
After riding a camber shaped board from a friend (which was way too long and too heavy) I started to take lessons on a rocker board. Rocker shaped boards and I do not match. The only thing I do with it is spinning around After a few test evenings on indoor halls I found the perfect snowboard for me.

A Slayblade 156!

I've been named crazy and bad ass for riding a true male snowboard, this because i''m not particularly male shaped:
60 kilo's (132 lbs?)
6"0 (182 cm?)
Shoesize 6 (39/40?)

The slayblade is a 'terrain destroyer', rides even better than the previous slayblade, which was completely flat, this ones baseline is lifted (yes I have tried them both). This gives the feeling and grip of a camber board, but gives more control than an all flat one. I have a lot of grip with icy conditions, easy to carve through the mountain and gives 100% control! For so far I have been able to search for any limitation or boundaries, but haven't found them so far!

I have fallen in love with the board, completed it with flow bindings and a northwave shoe.

I will keep adding to this review. I'm not used to snowboard terminology so please correct me if I talk rubbish.

got my eye out for a slayblade too, never rode one but i can just tell. i'm on another K2 now that i love, but i'll be surprised if it makes the season

don't worry about the male/female thing, if it's working for you it's all good!

That's my thought. I love the board. Last week went to a small indoors to board. It was all icepack but no problem with this one. It slices through really easily!

Even did some jumping with it

2014 K2 Slayblade is a true rocket alone with the Ride HighLife.

How does it compare to the feel of a regular cambered board?

For me personally that is a difficult question. Ive been learned to board on a camber board, which was too long for my weight. I enjoy riding regurlar camberboards as long as they are for my size. The Slayblade is stiff but more forgivable than a camber. Even though the SB is flat between the feet it turns much easier and the SB has more grip especially if you go fast.

In two weeks I will be in the real snow (finally!) with the slayblade. I will update then.
