  • "AWESOME DEAL for a Fanastic Board"

    , Denver,CO
    Pros: Good Edge Hold,Responsive Flex,Smooth Stability,Great Value,Quick Edge to Edge,Smooth Carves,Fast Base, Cons: none that i have found yet

    163W Salomon Arcade Bindings Salomon Triumph Size 12W Boots I'm 6', around 200lbs and just took this board out for the first time today. I upgraded from a Burton Cruzer 161 from about 13 years ago. Goddamn is this a nice board! I'm not kidding when I say, without even trying, I'm doing a solid 15mph faster without breaking a sweat. This board carves like a knife and holds an edge like a champ. I don't claim to be a good rider but I can certainly hold my own down any blue slopes and dabble in the blacks when I'm feeling frisky...I was charging down the blue's today like i was running from an avalanche and this board killed it for me. the stiffness is perfect for bombing a hill and carving at high speeds. with the discount they have on this board it's a steal, no doubt about it. if you need a new board and like all aspects of the mountain, by all means by this board. you won't find another deal. trust me, i looked.

Steven M: I bought the same board last year and I love it. I have been snowboarding for about 12 years and this is the best board I've had. It is very fast compared to other boards. So if they are a quick learner and don't want to buy a better board in the next couple years then I would recommend it. Also this person should be tall because its a big board. I'm 6'5 and it fits me well Dec 1, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm 75 inches (Male) , 238lb , boots size 12 (Brand 32 traditional lish).

Which model of snowboarding I should buy?

1)Ride Wild Life Wide Snowboard 167W ?
2)Ride Wild Life Snowboard 164?

I always renting the snowboarding from sky shops, last time I got 163 of Burton, which was good (I think).
Thanks !!

William B: I would have to disagree with matt. I'm 6ft, about 200 and i'm riding the 163w and it is great. you have a solid 40lbs on me, i might go with the longer board if i were you. i also wear a size 12 Jan 14, 2014

Matt GStaff: The best board for you would be the 163cm Ride Wild Life Wide Snowboard. Your size 12 boots need to be on a wide board. Jan 3, 2014

el Bruce asked: Hello, about to pull the trigger on this board, but it shows 163 W with a waist of 26.1, while most other sources show it much larger (like 26.7)? Can you confirm the width?

26.1 is perfect for me, but I'm not sure about 267. I am replacing a K2 Brigade that rides like a steamboat at 26.8. There may be other factors it how it 'feels' (its huge at tip and tail, not sintered, lower tech?). I wear 11.5 / 29.5 boot.. Thanks!

Matt GStaff: Hi Alan,

Thanks of the heads up!!! The 163cm Ride Wild Life Wide Snowboard has a waist width of 26.6cm - as labeled on the spec sheet that's attached to the board. This page will be updated momentarily.

What kind of terrain will you be riding in the most? How do you want the board to perform, like a dunebuggy or a Farrari?

If you want a hard charging all mountain deck check out the Ride Highlife UL, it comes in a 163cm and 159cm Wide options. Check it out HERE:

el Bruce: Thanks Matt.. zero park, 41 years old, 215 lbs, bum knee. 2nd season groomer cruiser who will do some pow. Hoping for something fairly damp but still easy to work on harder carving and advance with (i'm a low intermediate) and holds a solid edge. I don't need a board with afterburners since I'm not really straightlining, but my 1st season K2 Brigade is too boring. Was cake to learn on, though. Dec 31, 2013

ayyotreytrey asked: I have a few different questions,
1) I go to small ski resorts in the Midwest, I've been snowboarding for 6years so I would say I'm an advanced snowboarder for my riding conditions. I don't really go to the terrain parks all that much. Would this board fit the Midwest ski styles?
2) I'm 6'2 170lbs with a 13boot size. What size board should I get?
3) Any other boards I should look at? Thanks

Matt GStaff: Hi Trey,

1) I ride midwest ski resorts too and LOVE hard charging boards like the Ride Wild Life Wide Snowboard. The Wild Life is a great all mountain board with lots of pop, a set back stance, and an All Mountain Rocker profile shape. Overall, if you like riding fast the Wild Life will be a great deck.

2) If you were to get the Wild Life I'd suggest getting the 163cm W, it's a little wider than the 159cm W. You fit within both the 159cm W and 163cm W weight ranges, but the 163cm W will be a little bit better because of it's width.

3) You should check out the 2013 159cm Ride DH Wide (waist width 26cm) & the 2013 162cm Ride Berzerker Wide (waist width 26.1cm). The DH is ultra responsive with a 9 flex rating, a poppy camber profile, and a smaller sidecut radius for quick turns. The Berzerker has a flex rating of a 7, it's much like the Wild Life but has a Hybrid All Mountain profile shape that has rocker on the nose and micro camber everywhere else.

All in all you'll have a blast on any of those decks. If I was trying to choose, I'd pick the DH. It's hella' responsive, super poppy, can make tight turns, and is a twin. I like when boards ride EXACTLY the same regular as switch, even when I'm freeriding.

Check out the DH & Berzerker below:

A shopper asked: Hi, I need some help...I'm trying to buy my husband a snowboard as a gift. I would say we are definitely beginners, we've only been snowboarding a couple times and always rent equipment to go. We both picked it up quickly and want to get our own boards. I would like to get him something that he could learn on but still grow with so we don't have to buy a new board within the next year or two. He is 6 ft 1 inches weighs around 215 pounds and wears a size 13. He won't be doing any crazy tricks or riding rails or anything like that...well at least for now. We live in Michigan and will mainly be using the board here. Would this be a good one for him or is it the 167w too big? Are there any other boards you would suggest for him? Thanks for any advice you can provide! Feb 25, 2014
