K2 rocks!
Awesome board at a good price. If your and average snowboarder that is somewhere between a beginner and advanced, this is a great choice. It is a slower base, but really tough for hard landings. It can take a lot of abuse. Graphics and color look good too, if your into that. It just feels good

Great Snowboard
My son loves this snowboard. Paired it up with some nice K2 bindings and life is great! Excellent experience with the ordering process. Shipped in the time quoted.

I would buy again from The House. The free headphones was a nice touch as well.

Solid for the price
The Playback is a solid board for the park. It may not be the fastest and lightest, but it is great for the intermediate. Its got enough good things going for it that a beginner can grow into it and will not need to upgrade foe awhile. It is bombproof

Great Board
Amazing board for the price. Seemed to be a little stiffer than I thought it would be but still has good flex and pop. It did really well in powder also. Overall it looks great and performs very well in many different areas.

Strong and tough!
Base is strong and tough for jumps and rails, whatever. I like this board a lot and it has a nice snappy feel. I like to undersize so I can do a lot of jibbing

K2 snowboard and boots
We received our order in a timely manner and it looks great. Boots fit true to size and I will be using the board Christmas week at Heavenly and Kirkwood mountains. I will let you know afterwards how the board performed.

k2 playback
At first the board felt as a good alround board. But it was almost too flexable and didnt glide or ride down the mountain as other more stiffer and higher grade boards would have. Also I like the colors but the actual capabilitys of the board were low. Edges were sharp and easyly caught up as the steepness progressed. Low overall for this rider.

Ehhh
I bought this snowboard without knowing how to snowboard at all. I learned how to get down the hill without falling in a few runs but found that the boards edges are really agressive. Just sold it and bought some new skis on evo.com!

Hey I'm 5,4 do you think the 148 would be a good size?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014
Best Answer: It really all depends on preference. Smaller board is more control, longer board is faster. But I'm 5'11" riding a 156 and I know my friend is about 5'8" riding a 146. I think you might want a smaller board though if you're just starting off.

size 11 boot and want a 158cm board. should I buy wide?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2013
Best Answer: It's suggested to get a board with a 25.8cm waist width or wider for size 11+ boots. The 158cm K2 Playback Snowboard has a 25.5cm waist width, you could get away with it if your boots feature shrinkage footprint reduction technology.

size 10 boot and 5'10 170lbs would the 155 be a good choice for me on the K2 playback board? spend most of my time in the park but do also enjoy racing my friends down the mountain.
sean a on Jan 9, 2015
Best Answer: I bought this board for my friend and we just spent New Years week snow boarding Heavenly and kirkwood. He loved it! He also likes speed and surfing the mountain since he also is a surfer. However, the size 10 boots that I purchased were a bit tight and not wide enough. He ended up having to rent Burtons size 11. Now I am stuck with brand new snow board boots size 10. Make sure you try your boots on before you go snow boarding. Don't just assume they will fit like he did. Hope that answers your question.

If I just want an all mountain board and do a few rails would this be a good board for me?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2015
Best Answer: All in all it's a good board for many uses.  It's certainly capable of all mountain work.  It would also be perfectly suitable for some park riding, including rails for a beginner or intermediate rider.    It is a little soft and flexible, which makes it very easy to ride and learn tricks on, but it might be too soft for someone who is extremely skilled and agressive.  Of course that kind of rider would already know exactly what they want.  It has a flat profile.  It is a nice balance between the hard carving but twitchy, throw you down nature of a camber and the easy, floaty, but not as crisp handling of a rocker.  It is a twin board (same in each direction) and can be set up as such for tricks or if you ride a lot of switch stance.  You can also set the bindings a little differently and make it directional which is easier to cruise and carve on.  So basically it is a great all around, easy to ride, yet pretty capable board for folks that don't need extreme performance in one specialized area.  I don't think you can really go wrong with it.

Hi, I'm 5'9 and my Weight is 13lbs I was wondering if I should get a 148cm or a 152cm or 155cm board ?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2014
Best Answer: With the flat profile you don't need as long a board as you would with camber. I am a few inches taller than you and got the 155. You should be fine at that length, it may even be a bit too long, especially if you want to use it as a park board. So the 152 may be a better fit.

What type bindings and boot would your recommend for this board?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer: Personnel reference honestly. Myself, I'm switching between my Flow bindings from my old board and 2014 Burton Freestyle bindings. The board is great in the Tpark and for its price for a freestyle board. The bindings depend on you bruh. Happy hunting...

I am a decent snowboarder who has been snowboarding for a few years now, and am looking for a new board. I enjoy riding all mountain as well as in the park, is this board a good board for me? Also I have read some reviews on this board, is it too heavy? By that question I mean will I still be able to go fast down the mountain?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2015
Best Answer: If your a decent snowboarder this board will be perfect for you. It's a step below Burton but much cheaper. You can definitely go fast and carve well. The board doesn't feel heavy until you hit a park, then you will notice the extra effort it takes to get a nice pop on your jump. I've taken it cannon, snow, and smaller mountains. I would recommend it, especially for all mountian purposes

I'd imagine presses re pretty easy with this thing, how is it for carving?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2013
Best Answer: You're right, the K2 Playback Snowboard is great for pressing. The Playback has a pretty average sized sidecut radius that is perfect for large cross over and small cross under carves.

How does this board perform in the just beginning to intermediate stages for a boarder? How much of a step is it above the K2 Brigade? I'm debating between those two boards right now.
Austin P on Sep 13, 2013
Best Answer: The only major difference between the K2 Playback Snowboard and the K2 Brigade Snowboard is the profile shape. The Brigade has a Catch Free profile with a slight rocker rise near the contact points and the Playback features the Flatline profile which is completely flat. I'd go with the K2 Brigade, it's a little cheaper but pretty much the exact same thing.

Im 5'10 and 120 pounds would a 148 cm board be good for me?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2014
Best Answer: Hello!

Each Snowboard will be slightly different, and in the end a lot of your decision will be personal preference. That said, K2 suggests that for this version of the Playback you would be ok in any size between the 145 and 155. The 148 looks like might be the best.

Do you need to wax this board or do anything to it?
Braxton B on Jan 7, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, all snowboards (and skis) need to be waxed at least once every season. You may choose to tune the edges for sharper carving as well. Most resorts or any rental shop can do this for you. The new board's base is actually quite rough, compared to a well cared-for used board. New boards need wax before the first use.
