Snowboard Review System

Hey Everyone! Here is the system with the categories I am using to evaluate the boards that I am reviewing.  Check it out:

Key Board Specs – Any special or unique features the board may have.

What the Company Says – What does the brand say about the board.

On Snow Feel – How does it feel when you’re riding on snow, loose, semi-stable, stable, semi-catchy, or catchy.  Also, how easy is it to flat base or one foot.

Flex – Noodle to Plank, 1 to 10, how soft is the board.

Turn Initiation – How easy is it to put the board on its edge and make a turn, slow, average, fast, or lightning.

*Ratings will be Poor, Average, Good, Great, and Excellent, and explanations will follow.*

Edge Hold – How well does the board hold an edge on snow and ice.

Powder – How well does the board ride powder.

Carving – How well can the board hold a carve.

Speed – How fast can the board go comfortably, snail, slow, average, fast, or bomber.

Uneven Terrain – How well does the board handle bumps in the snow, crud, and chunder.

Switch – How well does the board ride switch.

Jumps – How well does the board handle small to large jumps, ollies,and nollies.

Jibbing – How well does the board handle rails, boxes, bonks, stairs, tubes, and any other jibs you can hit.

Pipe – How well does the board perform in the halfpipe, both with edge hold and drive from wall to wall keeping and generating speed.
