Weekend snowboard 153 road trip
 
I love this board it is just a real fun board to play around on. I wouldn't say it is great at one thing but can go anywhere on the mountain. I also have a capita indoor survival fk. I have to say I prefer the weekend it just feels like you can have more fun on it. It is softer then the capita but but had no issues hitting the back country. Presses were easy but the reverse camber it is going to be right. Buttering also was easy but it is a little stiff so not as easy as my banana. All in all it felt like a stiffer banana that handles the whole mountain a little better

I have the 155 Adventure Island (RC) and it is so playful. Great for pressing, buttering and all mountain fun. I also have the 157 Chutes and Towers (C) and this board hauls, all over the mountain, great for jumps and halfpipe. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Like a total noob, I bought mine (Adventure Island, 155cm, normal camber) out of a whim in December for $150 without knowing anything about the board or the company. Despite having reservations, I'm glad to know that you guys are having fun on it.

Now, this might have to go to a different thread (I promise to do a search), but do you guys know if there's already a bevel on it? I've been feeling very comfortable going fast on blues and once in a while, I'll still catch a nasty edge. Because of this, I'm entertaining the idea of beveling it like 1 degree or something to make the board more forgiving.

Thanks!
