What to look for while reviewing a board
 
I have bought three new boards for this season, the buysnow.com sale was just too good to pass up, and they are the first boards that I have owned since my very first. I want to post a couple reviews for the boards that I have, but I'm not really sure what I should be looking for. What should I be paying attention to while riding around? What information should be included in a review?

In total I have four boards that I will be reviewing. A 04/05 159cm Ride Theory (not that anyone will care because I doubt you can buy one anymore), a 12/13 157cm Lib Tech T. Rice Pro, a 12/13 154cm K2 WWW, and a 12/13 155cm Flow Era.

On another note, is it possible to make it so that the entire title for a thread is viewable while browsing through the forums. Half the time I have no idea what a thread is about because I can only see a part of the subject line, and I'm too lazy to click on it.

Here's what I usually put in a review:

- conditions
- where you tried it
- your experience level
- what your specs are, and how you setup the board
- take it through various terrain and comment on each (ice, packed powder, powder, park, trees, chutes, etc. whatever is available)

Try to be as objective as possible. Sometimes with a great board it's hard not to gush over it, but no board is perfect, they all have compromises somewhere.

Hope that helps...

And whether or not you got the board free from the manufacturer.

hktrdr is gone, but his effect still lingers...

You beat me to it, source of the board is key.

WTF, hktrdr is gone?
