the manual 150
this board is everything i expected it to be. it is very flexible with a forgiving amount of stiffness, the rocker is great for all type of park riding, and the pop is real! the only thing that was almost non existent was the beveled edges. if you ride alot of park, this board will not have round enough edges out of the box and will require detuning by hand, which, as many of you know is a royal pain in the a** to do. after the detune i was very pleased with the performance of this board as i have already taken it out 4 times as i am a colorado native. one other thing, i am 5'10 about 150 and i got the 150cm and it is working very well to my advantage for a shorter board, i like it very much and i have not noticed a difference from my ride society 157' in the amount of speed i can acheive. the board is a 5 star, but because the edges taking like 2 hours to thouroghly round, i give this product a 4 star. highly recommend if you dont mind the extra elbow grease

Only rode once, have yet to really get a feel for the chillydog. Looks mint, rides fast. I think I'll love it once I get the hang of the new feel.

Has anyone experienced cracks in the top layer after a few rides? It looks to be only cosmetic but I wouldn't expect a park board to crack after 3 trips to the mountain. Note... intermediate rider here, small jumps and features, nothing to cause unnecessary stress to the board.
A shopper on Mar 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I noticed the same thing on mine. I don't know where/when they happened but it's the same issue as you described. It doesn't sound like its cracked or broken in anyway, it only appears to have small stress fractures. I apologize though, I don't have any insight as to why this board has that.
Would you recomend this snowboard for a beginner?
Slick on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ordered it for my son who has been snowboarding for many years, he had asked for this one for Christmas. So I really can't answer your question, only tell you who I bought it for. So sorry, I hope this helps your decision....
What does the ChillyDog shape look like?

I want to buy Flow bindings. Will they work with this board?
Krista M on Nov 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Bindings work with any board, except most Burton boards need Burton bindings now. The only thing you'd need to worry about is if you have long feet, which might cause some toe drag if you get large bindings. If that's the case then you might want to look for a wide board
Hey I'm 6'2" and 220lbs, I've been riding a 2008-09 manual 153, I was wondering if I should get a bigger one?
Bnspl on Dec 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: a lot of freestylers ride boards a little bit shorter but it's not really necessary. I'm six foot one and I like a little bit longer of a board to enjoy more flex and and they are more floaty in the pow. honestly it's simply personal preference. I used to ride a Lamar hexan 164 and the I went to a 159 and I have a lot more fun. with all the new tech like rocker and more poppy cores the size doesn't matter.
I'm 5'11 and I weigh 125 lbs what size should I get?
Tyler S on Apr 5, 2016

for the Forum Manual Snowboard, we only carry the 147, which you could definitely ride given your weight and height! As Blake mentions, it is based on preference as well. I think this size is a great fit for you, but something to keep in mind is that shorter boards provide more playfulness and maneuverability, while a longer board will give you more control.
can you deliver to Greece?

What's the difference between 2x4 bolt pattern and the 4x4 bolt pattern?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The only difference is the space between holes. That is.. a 4x4 board will have more mounting options. The 2x4 and 4x4 systems are completely compatible.

I am a 5'5" girl with a size 6 boot. Would it be best to go for a 150 or 147cm board? I'm an intermediate rider but may use it for some freestyle?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A board's lenths should be determined by a riders weight. How much do you weigh?
i have a size 11.5 boot. Would i fit on a 153?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The waist width (24.9cm) of the 153cm Forum Manual Snowboard might be a little too marrow for your size 11.5 boots.

You might want to check out the 152cm K2 WWW Rocker Wide Snowboard, it has a waist width of 26.0cm. Check out the WWW HERE:

Hi I'm about 5'8 and 150lbs. Is 150 a good size?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You fit within the weight ranges of both the 150cm & 153cm Forum Manual Snowboard. If you are going to be freeriding more get the 153cm but if you're going to be in the park more get the 150cm.
