    Hey guys, I snapped my Lib Tech Skunk Ape 157W that I’ve ripped super hard for the past two years. Took some time to morn but now I’m looking for a new board to do it all. Most of the shops have no demo selection this year so I was hoping to get some advice from you all. I’m looking at: Lib...

    Hello, I'm an intermediate rider and weight 119 lbs for 5'4. I have ridden a Skate Banana until now but recently I'm looking for something more freeride-oriented. I'm especially looking for something faster and more stable at high speed in order to be able to keep up with skiers, along with...

    I’m a 5’8 155lb all mountain mainly park rider. I want to get a board that is able to do well on a surprise snow day with off trail action, the groomers, and mainly the park features. Just the casual and somewhat bigger jumps and a lot of the other park features. I just picked up burton cartel...

    I just needed some advice on gear. I am thinking about getting a new board and bindings. I am currently riding a k2 push series 152 with k2 sonic bindings. Both are from around 2008 (so like 13 years old), I bought it as my first board two years ago from someone. It is a traditional camber board...

    Hey everyone, I’m thinking of buying an Arbor Iguchi 2020 board from a friend of a friend at a really good price, but I’m not sure or know much about the Arbor boards. I know they’re high quality pieces, but my main concern is longevity. I’m not a hardcore snowboarder, but I’d like my own...

    I'm 6' 180 lbs and I wear a size 12 shoe. I'm a beginner, but I'm really enjoying learning how to snowboard and I want to get my own board. I'm considering these two mainly because of price, but I can't find anything online about the brand and I don't want to get stuck with a bad board. I'd be...

    Hi snowboarders I’m new to this forum. Been snowboarding for over 20 years now. But now something is new to me: I’m a dad of 2 small kids and the oldest started skiing on the slopes. I realized my freestyle board is t great for boarding with him. Not enough edge hold, and should be faster on...

    Hello, everybody. I'm looking for a new board that can help me to improve my butters and my flatland tricks on my local mountain, which is actually a tiny hill in Minnesota. I weigh 165 lbs and currently ride a 154 Arbor Westmark Camber and a 157 NS Proto Type 2. Both are too stiff for me to...

    Hello everyone, Hope you’re all amped for the season. A little advice needed here. I currently ride a Capita Mercury 155 for all mountain and a Burton Meateaters (restricted built after the hate) 152 in the park. I really don’t like this board in the park anymore it’s too much of a noodle with...

    I'm looking to move up from a 155 Salomon Assassin (2015-2016). Being 6ft, I found the nose and tail to be a bit too short, and my bindings are already maxed out on the mounting holes. I'll probably keep it around for 100% park sessions, but I don't think I can rely on it for the rest of the...

    So I have never snowboarded before. I used to ski quite a lot but this winter I've decided to give snowboarding a try. I discovered that it's basically cheaper to buy used equipment online than to rent a couple times. I found boots that fit great but I'm struggling with a board. Obviously I've...

    I bought my first new board this year; a flexible true twin park board (Signal Park). I'm considering getting a stiffer directional cambered board for all mountain riding and powder. I like the Signal Yup, on paper at least. And the reviews on their site seem to confirm that it's what I'm...

    Hello fellow snowboard peeps, I am new to this forum and wanted to seek some advice from the snowboard wizards out there and to those who have used websites like SAC (steep and cheap) before to get goods to Australia, if ever. SNOWBOARDS: When people ask me what sort of riding style I am...
