Forum Youngblood-2011

This is the Forum Youngblood Series; there’s three different boards in the Youngblood Series. There is the Chilly Dog With Pop, we have the Camber series, and then we have the DoubleDog series.

Burton Ration Snowboard Review

This is a Burton Ration. This is part of the Double Chair Tier Series. It has a feel rating of a 3, and yes it is a camber board. It’s going to be a softer board for that jib rat, it’s for the girl or guy who likes to ride park, bonk and do whatever…


2011 DC MLF Snowboard Review

DC MLF Snowboard

This DC MLF Snowboard is an actual camber board, it’s one of the only camber boards in the DC line this year. It has six millimeters of camber. If I were to set this thing flat – you would see six millimeters of lift under the center of the board, this provides you with tons of pop….

The K2 Hurrithane Binding ushers in a revolution of tweak, with their Tweakback Asymmetrical Highback. The whole thing is made of a soft urethane, that has a solid feel when you go edge-to-edge, but goes soft when you start reaching for crail, double-method, seatbelt, and any combinations of tweak-tastic grabs. The baseplate hides under a…

Review: Signal Park & Vita Rocker


The Signal Rocker features a three-stage design that provides contact points from binding-to-binding at all times, and a second stage acts as a pivot point to get you into stage three—the press zone. These zones can help anyone get their nose and tail presses into the twelve-inch press club on this super soft stick. The…
