Great Board!
Bought this board last season and it was a great decision. Excellent board for the intermediate to advanced rider. Works good in the park as well as all over the mountain. The extra platform provided by the wide board makes it great for riders trying to progress their skills in the park.

shipping was fast, snowboard was packed well. I am very happy with the construction of this board. I have not got to the slopes yet waiting for the snow to fall.

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?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'10", 310lbs and wear a size 11.5. I think this is a great all around board. It will have more pop and flex then a beginners board, but i think its a steady board and rides great. If you're over 6 feet i will say it probably will be too short for you, but then again you are a beginner i think its perfect, remember the longer the board the faster it goes and the harder to stear. So until you get your skills up i think 159 works.
I'm 5,10 Looking at the 156 Wide I ride park will this board be good ? I'm also 210lb
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: you should probably go for a shorter board given your height. I am 6 foot and this board works good for me but its also better to get a regular width board for park riding.
I'm 5,10 I ride freestyle , something shoulder height,chin height in looking at the 156 wide will it feel my needs?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
since this board is a hybrid flat will it catch edges while riding?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: you can catch an edge on any snowboard... just work on your riding!!!
I'm a newbie to snowboards with 1 day under my belt and im hooked. I'm loking at boards and really like the K2 stuff. Would this be a good board to start out on ? 6ft 195lbs
Kenny on Jan 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
So I'm an advanced rider when I comes to all mountain, but when it comes to the park I'm more of a beginner not a newb though, I have hit some jumps and boxes. How will this board hold up in the park?
Jeremy y on Jan 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: So far I love this board. Great balance of cost and production value. It does have enough pop to get you launched when you need, but enough balance to keep u under control. The flat design and curves of the rail are perfection wen it comes to transitions and you feel like you always have a solid connection to the snow under your feet. Catching an edge is a worry of the past with this board. Riding switch seems to be easier with this board. So you can land switch, but quickly transition back to your more familiar edge without a problem. I am advanced when it come to all around mountain, and intermediate when it comes to park. Used this board a half dozen times last season. Similar to your level, it sounds like. Also, a beautifully designed board.
I'm 6'1 and 160 lbs I am a beginner to intermediate rider and I was wondering what size board I would need? I am just looking for a board to cruise around the mountain and hit the parks occasionally.
Connor O on Dec 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey man I just got done with a 3 day first ride on this board the first day was iffy but after I dialed my set up in I had a blast I'm 6' ft. 170lbs. and I'm riding a 153" Wide cause I wear size 11, but yea after I broke it in I had a blast did a few casual terrain park runs but the rest of the time was spent on mountain (snow was powder with some ice patches) and this thing cut right through it like butter. Overall an amazing board and its very forgiving this is only my 3rd time on the mountain and I was looking like a season rider
how flexible is this board?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'd say that this K2 Playback Wide Snowboard will have a 4.5 flex rating out of 10. It's a little softer than average but not too soft.
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
Josh S. on Dec 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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 :)
