Description: Academy Propaganda Snowboard 158

"customer service sucked"
i demod this board i guess you can say. it was my buddies board and i took a few laps on it. he mostly rides rails and hits the occasional 20 footer. but he slayed rails with this board and loved it. he actually one a comp at crotched while riding it. he never beat up on this board just took normal wear and tear. but mid january it craked across the tail and he sent it to academy and they kept saying theyd ship him a new one but he still hasnt got it yet. so take the risk if you want a super fun ride until it breaks than your screwed even if its under warranty
"Props for the Propaganda"
This is one of my favorite boards. Flex is perfect for anything and everything, camber makes this board fly off jumps and it's just about perfect for presses, rails and boxes. is you spend a lot of time in the park, get this.
"Awesomely fun board"
Being a instructor im on my gear 100+ days a year, this was the only deck of 3 i purchased at the beginning of the season that made it to closing day... super fun shredsled... could ride board anywhere tho seemed at home in the park :D
Got this board for cheap and I must say I love it! Easy to control and the graphics are pretty nice. Good flex, pop, and stable.
"great in the park"
great in the park a nice soft flexy poppy camber board. good for jibs and jumps. just had a powder day up at smuggs and it didn't float very well, also it wasn't the best in the woods, because its not the most responsive board.i dont know why it says 6.5 as the flex, because its really soft, its far softer than the burton dom (09), id probably give it a 2.5-3. it feels really poppy when ollieing. the edge on my tail sort of split off (this is my first season on the board) , and i'm epoxy&clamping it back on right now, but that same thing happened on my last board (at the end of its 3rd season)so it might just be something i do. anyway great park board, but maybe not the best if you want to do woods and take a lot of high speed runs, or do a lot of pow. over all awesome... in the park.
"prop is the illest"
Yo this board is sweet, I've been riding the propaganda for a few years now. There's no other board like it, you can freestyle it in the park, on the mountain, or in the streets. I marked it as a board for someone with an intermediate skill level but the truth is anyone can ride it. It's easy enough for someone to learn on and it's fun enough for someone thats an advanced rider also. It's super flexy really durable, and has really good pop. You learn something new on this board everyday you ride it. I love this board and I'll never stop riding it.
"Butter ur mellow"
Super sick jib board that can handle some every thing else too!!!!
This board is SO MUCH FUN in the park and for hitting street features! It is easy to press and still has alot of pop! I love the shape and feel of this board under my feet!
I demoed the propaganda at kingvale for a day last year. It was super easy to ride around the park and hit the jibs. I got compliments on my nosepresses from friends, which almost never happens cause my nosepresses kinda suck. so, that was a nice ego boost. the propaganda is super smooth and easy to press and jib on. even though it's really soft, it still felt stable under my feet, and i could crack a solid ollie on it. stoked to have demoed this stick!
"Awesome Jib/Park Board"
I got hooked up with this board last season as a jib board, and primarily used it for street. Its a great rail board and is super flexy and makes presses feel great! I broke my Academy Rhythm do i took this out to the mtn and it really surprised me, it truned out to be a great park board and i didn't really have that much trouble hitting kickers. the board has pretty good pop and because of Academys BDR you will never catch an edge.
its an ok board but sometimes it feels a bit loose when landing jumps
my buddy and i took a trip to liberty's snowflex setup, and he happened to have this board. i was aware that academy existed, but never really considered their boards. well, after one run i was pretty psyched on it. this board is low cost, feels like you have been riding it for years even when you first hop on it, and has a nice flex that is not too soft and not too stiff. i definitely recommend considering this board if your looking for a park board that is not a super noodle
