I have ridden both. Both are great boards. Both would get the job done for your son. I would lean towards the Fastplant personally. I like a lot of things about the board's ride, plus the...

How much do you weigh? The Mission EST will be fine if you are under 190ish...or if you like a little bit more power in your binders go with the Cartel EST. If you are more freeride, I would go...

If you are a little hesitant on the Custom Flying V (coming from traditional camber) you could check out the Custom Restricted (it has Camber Humps). It is the same idea as FV but with more camber...

I have ridden them both and if you are wanting a board to press out (at 135lbs) you should go with the Evo. That thing can still still rip on edge too so you won't sacrifice anything on the groomers....

As others have suggested: a few runs and you will get used to the looseness of the board. It is most evident skating to the lift and at slow speeds, once you get it on edge you will find that you are...

Ride dropped the Haze from the line in like 2009. If you got a 4 year old boot for $40 off, you didn't get that good of a deal. That speedlace system (that Ride doesn't use anymore) is pretty bad. If...

If your boots fit and still have life to them, ride them. The only other thing to look for in a boot is the flex, but that is after you find what fits best. Flex only matters if you have a boot that...
