Andrea L T: This is is a good board. This board is fun to ride and can be ridden in pretty much all snow conditions. This board has a lot of play because it is a softer board so it is more forgiving. You will not catch edges as easy. has pretty good flex. I would recommend for beginner to intermediate level rider. Jan 28, 2014

Kenny: Thanks a bunch. There are so many different shapes and sizes i was going to give up. Lol. Do I need a "wide " board too ? Jan 28, 2014
Andrea L T: You would only need a wide board if you have feet that won't fit on the width of the board. Jan 28, 2014
Kenny: Thx ! Jan 29, 2014
Kenny: How wide is the common board ? Jan 29, 2014
Andrea L T: Th K2 Playback board is 26 cm wide (approximately 10 1/2"). Does that help? Jan 29, 2014
Josh S.: I bought this board this past December and I gotta say that for it's price it is a great deal! It's entry level to intermediate which is exactly what you're looking for. I like to ride the park as well as regular trails and its been great. It's a wide board so it makes landing jumps a little easier as well as hitting boxes. As you're still a beginner you probably won't be doing any of that right away but as you progress, you'll have a lot of fun on it. Hope this helps! Jan 28, 2014

Carlos V: I'm 5'9 and bought the 156cm and totally love it! I'm a beginner too and have already taken it out 4 times. The bindings are easy to strap into and the board rides awesome. The only problem I see is people trying to steal it so keep an eye on your board bruh! Feb 12, 2014

Josh S. asked: I was thinking about buying this board, but I was wondering if my arctic edge team bindings would be compatible/good for it? I also wanted to know the opinion of the bindings in general as they were the first bindings I ever bought. I had been using them on a Lamar 151 Blazer and after a few runs down the mountain they would be come loose and I would have to retighten the screws. Not sure if this is a normal issue or if it was a problem with the board or bindings. Thanks Dec 8, 2013

Jimmie S: Hello Josh. First off, this board is fantastic! I'm glad you're thinking about buying it. Yes, the bindings are compatible with the board. As for your bindings, that's a normal issue that I experience, too, regardless of the board I use. It's definitely your bindings, not the board itself. I've used multiple rental boards with my own bindings as well as a previous board of my own that came with the bindings, and after a few runs I'd have to retighten them. If you want, you could try to find new bindings, but chances are you'll encounter the same problem no matter what.
Also, this board is going to feel a LITTLE different going down the mountain your first few times, since it has a Flatline camber. If you're into terrain parks and just overall mountain use, this is something I definitely recommend. It's very easy to switch between regular and goofy stance. I recommend buying a size that's on the shorter side. For example, I'm 6'1" and weigh 170lbs (recommended board size would be between 155-161cm-ish) and I ride on a 156cm Wide.
Good luck! Happy snowboarding :)

Josh S.: I was also wondering about my boots. I have a used pair of Rossignol boots size 12.5(don't know model), but it is an old boot and I know they used to make them bigger than todays sizes. I measured the boot length and it came out to be approx. 13inches give or take a millimeter. Would this hang over the board enough to cause a toe drag problem and if so is there anyway I could set up my stance a little differently to reduce this? I really want this board but I don't have enough money to get a new board and boots so I really need to try and make it work. Thanks Dec 11, 2013
Jimmie S: I wear a size 11 1/2 boot and it JUST BARELY goes over the edge, if any at all. There's going to be no toe drag problems, but if it makes you uncomfortable, you can always set up your stance at 6 degrees for both feet (at least this is the setting I use on my bindings; I don't know how yours are set up, but any type of forward stance toward the direction you ride will work best). I would not buy new boots just for this board, and I'm confident this board will be wide enough for you not to have a toe drag problem. You are buying the Wide board, afterall :). Any more questions, feel free to ask. Dec 12, 2013

Josh S.: Haha you have the same name as my mom and I totally just thought you were her and she was buying it for me. Wishful thinking . Thanks anyway though. Dec 8, 2013

A shopper asked: Im 6'1, 185lbs and wear a size 12 shoe. I just bought the 159 wide board. Will this be good? i checked other online sources and it said that this was an appropriate size. Some sources say smaller and some say bigger so i just went with this one since it fell in the middle. Im a begginer and just wanted a board of my own for all around use. Probly should have asked this before buying but to late. Any advice? Mar 17, 2014
