Needed the wide
Wide fit me really well. This is a sweet board for jumps, but I do not really do park riding. Fast all over the mountain and responsive

Best board owned by far!
Best board. If you want a park board this is the way to go.

the board is amazing for boxes n jumps and great for the pow the board hates the ice being a freestyle board but for rails the board has just enough flex and the graphics tend to fade after a while of riding

Nice Ride
Been boarding now since 1996. Bought this to replace my 97 Burton Balance board which was a little narrow for my size 13 boot. I was riding groomed trails with this board and it felt good. I'm kind of a fast rider for this style of board but it did well and felt in control. I'm an all around rider and feel this board should do good for most riders. Unless you're an expert rider that needs a specific style of board... if the price is right for you, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this board.

This board does whatever you throw at it.
Probably one of the best all around boards I've ridden. Presses are easy, yet the board is solid and stable for jumps. The board has great pop and is even good in the glades.

Decent board, just not for me
Board doesn't hold a good edge at speeds higher than 20mph, But it is VERY forgiving.
Good for butters.
sizing chart told me to get a wide because of 10.5 boot size, but I'm finding myself wishing it were thinner.

Overall, I would have chosen another board if I'd have tested it first. Wasn't very expensive so I can't be that upset

My friend has the 2012 version and I needed a new board for this season so I bought this.
Jonathan N on Oct 23, 2013
Review on thegoodride was exactly what I wanted. I'm a bigger rider, 6'3", 260lbs so I needed a board that could support that as well. Saved money by getting this 2013 version instead of the 2014

how will this board do in the powder?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That's going to depend on a lot of factors that I honestly can't speak on. The most I can tell you is that the rider to board size ratio, the flex of the board, the camber of the board, etc are important things to check out before you buy. To my knowledge, this board is stronger for park and groomer riding. At 6'3" 250lbs, I ride this for park and most definitely would sink in powder. I struggled at points to carve on groomers. Lost some weight, hope that changes. But for my size, I'd be looking at powder boards in the high 160s centimeter range, not this. But again, that's relative. Try to find some sizing guides for the different boards your interested in. I also recall watching youtube videos to learn the difference between park, groomer, and powder boards. Check those out. With powder, you're going to want length to help keep you up on top of the snow and to keep you at enough speed to be able to do so. With a smaller board, you're going to slow down and/or sink.
I'm looking to get this board, should I get get this in wide or regular? I'm 5'7" about 200 lbs and boot size 10.5.

Chung M on Jan 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Go for the narrow width. At 10.5 I would not worry.
can i go backcountry on this board?
Jordan W on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not the best option for back country, its basically a fairly balanced board made for park. I ride all over the mountain, including backcountry and love it. However, if you are looking for a board specifically for backcountry I would look elsewhere. That being said, at this price this board cannot be beat. Looks incredible and rides incredibly all over the mountain. I got this board beginning of December and it has completely exceeded my expectations.
When it says base color may vary what exactly does that mean? Looking to buy this as a gift for someone..
Laurenlevine on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are talking about the bottom base. The color wouldnt vary unless they send a different model of the board. The graphics are standard based on they year of production. A board made for a different season, however, would have different graphics.
I have a size 12 boot and am 5'9 120 pounds, do you think I should get the 149W or the 153W?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Disclaimer, I actually returned this board before riding and went with the 2013 Kink. But I can still provide some insight I think.

Being 120lbs, you're going to be able to ride a TON of boards out there. Frankly, some boards are going to be way too big because you simply won't have the momentum to get turning. Short answer, if you're going for the park I'd get the 149W. If you're going to stay on groomers, go for the 153W

Long answer: If you plan to go to the park you're going to need the maneuverability a short board provides (spins, jumps). If you don't plan on going in the park much, staying on groomers, then you will get some more top speed and control out of the 153W. Longer boards tend to bring speed and stability while shorter boards bring versatility.

Personally, I have a 156W. It feels a little small. I've dropped about thirty pounds since last season but at 6'4" 270, this board felt a little slow when I was only going on groomers. But in the park, I had tons of fun with grinds and jumps. Remember (2013 Kink though). I believe the board is rated for 220lbs and the guy at my local shop told me I could get away with riding park boards down to that rating. I'm guessing I'll have more fun with the board this year after getting some weight off.

Lastly, I am not an expert and both might honestly feel a little large to you. You can find more information by searching through sizing charts (just google that with your specific board) and gathering a range of board sizes that you feel meet those specifications. Then choose based off your riding style. I did a lot of my own research because I found my local shop intimidating, but they were super helpful. Give that a try if you run into a wall.
I am looking for a short board for street and park but I have 11 boots and like a wide stance, I am looking into the kink wide and was wondering if the stance range was the same (22") on the 149 as is the 153?
Marc G on Feb 10, 2014
I am 6'0" and have the 153 and wear a 10.5 boot. I wish it was a little wider in the stance. I would imagine that the 149 would be a little smaller, so I would recommend you go with the 153 if you are looking for a wider stance.
What year is this board?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
This Ride Kink Wide is the 2013 Model Year.
Thinking of buying this board as my first board ever! So I'm wondering if the wide 156cm board will fit my size 12.5 boot perfectly? I'm 6'3 and about 180lbs. Thank you in advance.
Danny A on Jan 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hey Danny, yes I think the 156cm will work for you!
