I’m looking for a slower speed cruiser to ride with my wife. (I think this is what a “rad dad” board is?)

A bit too old for Park

The board is a lot of fun, and really enjoy charging...
I stucked between those boards.
Have anyone tried them and can share a thought? Which one will suit me better? I am leaning towards Burton because of the shorter size, 157W. I like to RIDE it short.

Becouse of the terrain I need a blasting carving...
I am just wondering if a good carving means leaving a continuous line on the snow, even when linking turns. It’s kind of hard to describe the problem I’m having so please see the image below. Hopefully the question makes sense.
I started to snowboard more often last season and already went snowboarding for 8 days this season. I am really trying my best to improve my ride. One of my main goals is to be able to carve better especially on steeper slopes (blue, black..).
I have included a raw video of me riding down a...

I'm looking to get a new board this season and I'm stuck between the Double Dog and the Showstopper. As someone who likes to carve a lot, I really like the wider base of the showstopper and the harder flex but the sidecut radius is smaller than what I would normally ride, the Double Dog picks up...
Off we go that I am getting a new board for myself, yet I believe this topic should be quite interesting for anyone in a similar situation.

The main issue to be fixed by a new snowboard: vibrating nose (nose-to-front...
Hello Everyone, this is my first post here.
This is going to be my sixth season riding and I'm falling in love with carving. While I'm quite confident with my frontside carve and I manage to get quite low more often than not, I'm a bit struggling to improve my backside carve. I find it...
Based on this thread here where I asked for board recommendations, I bought a 2022 Salomon HPS Takaharu Nakai (161cm) : Salomon HPS lineup - Thougts for carving, groomers and pow (thanks again! waiting for the delivery).
There was some recommendations for bindings and I'd like to...
I'm looking to buy a snowboard for next season (coming from rentals in the last couple of years). I wanted to gain some more knowledge from you about the Salomon HPS 2022 line (+ Salomon Sickstick 2022).
Some context. I do not do any park (too old!). I'd like a board for carving, trees...
I am interested in buying a snowboard for hard charging and carving.
F2 Eliminator Snowboards seem to be THE big thing.
While searching for raceboards I came across the Nidecker Spectre 168. The thing that worries me is the deep sidecut of 7.9 m Sidecut Radius. F2 Eliminator boards have...
I am looking to get an all mountain board. Currently I am riding my daughter's K2 Kandi 134. I have had a couple Ride Raptures ( 138 and 143) but they were hard to turn and were very surfy. I was told that the waist width was too wide on the Ride boards with my size 6 boot. I...

I already own a Capita Asymulator 154 for park and a Slush Slasher for trees...
This is my review of the Amplid Penta after 3 days riding it from 9 AM to 4 PM non-stop. I never wrote a board review so don’t be too mean.
So I won’t review it in all possible conditions and infinity of scenarios. My review will be for groomers and piste in general...
About me: Been riding...
Hi again. I have one more excellent board to sell which may be lesser known here but it is one of the best boards I've ever ridden.
Ogasaka is a very famous Japanese snowboard brand and its boards are all made in Japan.
This one is their FC limited edition, which stands for Full Carve. As...
So my goal for the coming season is to start carving. I tried towards the end of last season, but then realized I needed more time. For now, my new goal is to learn a better way of turning than I already do. I was thinking about learning those skidding turns or sliding turns (i think they are...
I have been reading tons, here at this forum and elsewhere in different shops and forums.
I am considering a few snowboards and I would like to make the right choice.
My profile is:
I like speed, therefore I reckon I need a stable and somewhat medium/rigid snowboard.
I don't touch...
