    Hey guys I started snowboarding at the beginning of this season and I have to say I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve gone as much as I could living on the east coast, so I’d say I’m able to get down the mountain on my own at least. I’ve looked at more all-mountain boards as a first board and I...

The charts all vary, and the boards I rent all differ so much that it’s difficult to tell. For info, I am a female who is 5’0”. I am 107lb, can fluctuate from 100-115lb. My legs are...

    Hi all, Just got back into the sport and already decided on buying a board. So I’m looking at used boards and have a Ride Concept UL 2010 basically in mint condition on hold (saw in person).

    Hey yall – just looking for some new board advice. I’m a solid low-intermediate rider who gets in 20-30 days per year in CO. I’ve been riding a Yes Typo 158, and I’m trying to decide my next moves gear-wise. I would say above all else I love tree riding, and while I was able to get around fine...

    Hey Got an Academy Collective 158 Camber from 2009 that’s not really worn out. But I’ve started looking at a Burton Custom 158 Camber and started believing that there will be a big upgrade and more enjoyable to ride a newer and higher end board. But will there really be that much different, or...
