Awesome board
I had an ancient Fleetwood 163W prior. The Wild Life is softer than that was, but in a great way. Turns are so effortless that it is mind-blowing. It is a blast to ride!

Pictures do not do the board graphics justice. It is amazing in person. The bottom is super bright and the top has clear areas where the board construction can be seen.

AWESOME DEAL for a Fanastic Board
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

It was the only snowboard I felt comfortable with for size. I am 6'2'' and nearly 200 pounds. I couldn't find a decent selection of big boards anywhere else on the internet. Also a pretty reasonable price and good details about the product. I wanted a rocker board for long runs, not into a lot of aerials and halfpipes, so this one suits my needs well.

I wanted an all mountain board that could do everything. Being a closeout model from last year, I was able to save a lot of money. This appeared to be a good board for the price

It's a good board, moderate stiffness, good length and size for the all mountain powder tamer. The look of this board screams aficionado with its wood grain style and classic looks.

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!
A shopper on Feb 25, 2014
So based on his height and weight I would say the 167w is probably about perfect for him for a beginner board I wouldn't recommend getting anything smaller as the smaller you go the quicker the board will turn or catch a rail. I like this one because while it may drive like a boat its almost impossible to fully wipe out on. If you have the ability to I might also recommend waiting on choosing a board until your husband knows what style feels good for him. Unfortunately higher end snowboards are like shoes or clothes and picking them out can be done, but, the best experience comes from getting a board that meets your exact style. Most rental companies have an option called Demo or Pro which gives you a board you can use to learn the different styles of design. I've found that some times this can be a hassle and a lot of equipment shops are to lazy to properly fit clients, but, if you want to get the most comfortable board thats how you do it. Board designs that effect your style are usually listed as: Camber/Flat/Rocker/Mixed, Flex, Directional/True Twin/Directional Twin, Side Cut, Effective Edge All theses play a big part in pressure and should be considered when buying a personal snowboard. Of course that's just the board bindings and boots also play a major role. Personally I love this board and it fits everything I use it for I'm not big on tricks but I do ride back country and being able to stay up at all times is very important for me. I would also recommend a nice pair of metal step in bindings and a good set of hard stiff snowboard boots. Of course if you are looking at boots get them sized and wear them for a bit if there is any pressure or stiffness look somewhere else DO NOT BUY BOOTS ONLINE. (just my $0.09) hope it helps
Is this board a good choice for a beginner? I'm buying it as a gift and need 167cm length and Wide...
Kyla P on Nov 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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
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 !!
A shopper on Jan 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
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!
el Bruce on Dec 30, 2013

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:
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
ayyotreytrey on Dec 4, 2013

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:
