Hi everybody, I'm Poutanen's fiancee so I deserve credit for putting up with him every day!

A little background: I'm going into my 5th season of riding. Spent the first two years in Ontario and the last two in Alberta. My first board was a 2010 K2 Luna camber, it was a great board but I was reaching a plateau with my riding.

Specs:

- Prior Brandywine 153 (screaming trees topsheet)
- Directional free ride board, camber with lifted tips
- Paired with Burton Scribe bindings
- Sintered base
- Flex: It definitely feels stiffer than my K2 Luna
For all the specs click here : Brandywine Snowboard Model For Ladies From Prior Snowboards | Female Snowboard | Womens Snowboard | Whistler BC

Conditions:

I've rode this board at Lake Louise, Fernie, Nakiska and Kimberley. The snow has been everything from deep Alberta powder, to ice, groomers and hardpack. I've taken it down rocky steeps, through trees, and down chutes, and bowls.

Positives:

- Excellent edge hold
- Great for carving
- Good control
- Still easy to ride with the rockered nose and tail
- Rides much better in deep powder than my old board

Negatives:

- A little more expensive than a typical off the shelf board, but I would buy another one in a second

Conclusion:

I really wanted a camber board. I demo'd a few rocker and flying V boards last year and wasn't pleased with them. But with the K2 my boarding was not progressing any further, I noticed that when i bought the Prior my boarding progression was huge, and I was more confident to take on new terrain. With the Prior I take on things that I never pictured myself doing! When I'm on my board it feels like it's part of me, it does what I want to do and doesn't fight me!

Great review, morris149! Thanks for posting it up. Excellent pics, too!

Ahaha, you certainly deserve credit for "putting up with" good old Pouts everyday! When I saw his post (below) in the Today I Hate Thread, I thought, "Oh, this woman is a saint!" :D (And I don't even know what Zoo Juniors is but sounds like the title might fit the theme?...ha)

This is why I don't get into TV shows... I watch my NFL, F1, The Flintstones (no chance of ruining the final episode there!) and Zoo Juniors.
You know we all heart you, Pouts! (Hence this smiley is for you): :yahoo:

Funny enough SHE'S the one who picks the Flintstones, Zoo Juniors, and we're both NFL fans. If we're sitting at a bar she gets right into it and starts shouting at the TV. :blink: I think we're made for each other! lol

This is Zoo Juniors!

Hi morris
Thanks for the review! I was interested in the Brandywine since it's one of the splits I could order.
Great to hear, that you found "your" board :thumbsup:

Ah, sounds like you're made for each other indeed! Excellent.

I'm a hockey girl; you should see me during playoffs! Anything else (NFL, NBA, MLB) however, doesn't do it for me. Not enough action by comparison :D

Thanks everyone,

I do love my board and I am extremely happy the season has arrived again to get back out on it. I would highly recommend this board to any lady who loves all mountain riding and steep and deep. I did have an amazing day with it at kicking Horse last year in feet of powder. It is awesome in any of the conditions I have ridden it in:) I do love it and can't wait to get another one with the upgrades they have done it would be fun to have.

Here are some pics of different scenario's I boarded with my prior in the past year with pout:) The one of feuz bowl at kicking horse is me at the top in the middle it was a 45 degree chute and soo much fun:jumping1:

Love those pics! Love the contrast of the wedding dress with the boots, the white in white. Props for riding with that dress :eusa_clap::bowdown:
