"A Real Piece of Junk" 1/6/2012
Helpful Review?   (5) Yes    (3) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Stunt Wide Snowboard 153
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Soft but not too soft, RC Design is effective, Nice Graphics
  • Cons:  Low-End Burton, Extruded/Poorly Adhered Base, DELAM!!!!!!!!!

Experience:   I won this board sometime back from this website. I used it for a few months and it rode very nicely, prompting my original review. It was nice for the park thought not a big air board. After the first few months the base delamed, water and air got under the base. I emailed (then Sierra) and they replaced it no questions asked. I waited the summer out and Trusnow took over. I took my newly replaced board and rode it sparingly for 3 months. The base effectively pealed off like tape. This came as no surprise to me considered this is a Low-End Burton. (which are notorious for poor manufacturing and QA)I promptly called Trusnow and, after jumping through many hoops, got credit towards another board of my choice and went with the Rome Artifact Rocker. Much Better. This board: Cool Design and Tech; Dreadful manufacturing. Dont buy it, dont waste your time.
"All Mountain Godsend" 4/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Academy Team
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Very Poppy, Not Too Heavy, Impervious Body and Base, Beautiful Graphics, Razor Edge, Stiff but not too stiff
  • Cons:  Razor Edges are bad for jibs, Takes work getting used to, As another review said, not a beginner board

Experience:   I bought this board after hearing many good things about Academy boards from my local mountains. I bought the 152 with Flux Super Titan bindings. When I purchased this board with explicit intent of being a high-level jump/freestyle and high speed/bump board. First off, I'd like to comment on the beautiful graphics, makes you feel bad for putting bindings on it. The base of this board seems almost bullet-proof, after multiple scrapes an the edges of boxes and rails, the based has only minor scuffs and scratches. Naturally, as I bought this board knowing it was a directional twin, I tested the pop off the tail right of the bat, I was impressed immensely (and nearly fell overdoing it). Next I tested basic pop off of a jump, it was noticeably powerful. After that, I tried a few rails and(wooden) wall-rides. Lets just say the edges were way too sharp (amazing on ice though). Then, for my last test, I bombed a few groomers and bumpy runs: the chatter was next to non-existent. As a summary, I would say this thing is a great all-around board, but this is not my first pick for a jib stick. Perhaps a smaller model would be more efficient for jibs, but I prefer reverse camber. This board is definitely not a beginner board largely because of its too-stiff-for-beginners flex pattern. I would recommend this board for anyone looking for a board that will stand the test of the entire mountain: from high speeds, to jumps, to rock hits in the back country.
"Best Park/Freestyle board I have EVER used" 3/15/2011
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 GNU Forest Pickle PTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Halfpipe,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Low Spin weight, Strong Base, MTX, Assym. Heel Cut, Banana Tech, Flex, Decent Pop, Unique Look, Pre-Detuned
  • Cons:  Tough in Chop like most RC boards,

Experience:   I bought this (153) board a couple weeks ago from Tru-snow and have put quite a few hours on it already... There is so much to love about this board. First off, I had been looking at the Park Pickle for some time but I really disliked the nasty green color of the main line so this was a ease for my hesitations. I bought this board with the intent of using it as a park and all mountain freestyle and came pre-detuned between the feet from the factory, awesome. Perhaps one of the most notable qualities of this board is the core construction; it doesn't go beyond the contact points into the kinked tips of the board. This makes the board spin like a shorter class. The next thing I noticed was the banana tech and the way it handled boxes and rails. Board is able to lock on boxes and rails very easily for some sick presses and also has an exceptional room for error when it comes to catching edges. The tech on this creates fairly poppy ollies. The assymetrical heel side cut is not a game changer unless you are performing REAL carve turns or are hitting the pipe (which this board KILLS on). The flex is not too stiff so presses can be achieved but is not a noodle by any means and can handle even most booters. This is my first board with magnetraction and I expected it to not be too great, it is. Hitting icy slopes on spring mornings are no challenge nor frozen night riding, which I have used this board on. I have had very little sliding out on ice and I can really feel the magnetraction doing its job. Finally, the 9000 Sintered base is fantastic. I nailed a branch sticking out of a quarter pipe very hard and it caused very, very little damage to the base. I recommend this as an Advanced board primarily because lower level riders will trash this board before being able to utilize all the amazing features it has to offer (low spin weight, Assym. Heel cut, strong base. All around the best board I have ever used in my life.
"Best Rocker I've Ever Used" 4/22/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Rome Pusher
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  True Twin, Awesome Graphic, Reinforced ends make this board fairly poppy, Stiff, , but but not too stiff, very sturdy
  • Cons:  Not a beginner board (great for advanced riders), Topsheet at ends is easily damaged,

Experience:   Rome boards are high quality, plain and simple. My experience with Rome boards in the past compelled me to buy another, and this is a fantastic board. The reinforced tip and tail (along with a moderate rocker between the feet)makes this board responsive, quite poppy for a rocker, and gentle on jibs. The rocker does not make this board too soft between the feet, so jumps are solid from approach to landing. Though the flex gets softer as you break it in. However, this board seems to want to enter turns of its own accord, which is great for advanced riders, but will make a beginner become unstable. Of course, the rocker will make this board bad for chop, but great for powder. One of the best park boards I have ever had.
"Excellent for all weather" 5/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 686 Smarty Original Cargo
  • Pros:  Baggy but not heavy, nice waterproofing, Not too heavy to use in spring conditions
  • Cons:  Extra cold days may require extra layers underneat, Waterproofing on butt cant handle 100+ days in a s,
  • Pant Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Base size is a little big, but it is very adjustable

Experience:   I bought these pants with a very convenient 50% discount employee discount at my local mountain and used them through this entire season. First of all, I bought the black pair because my job required black pants specifically, but these pants had vents and weren't too heavy to use into the spring conditions, though they did get a tad bit warm. I spent a WHOLE lot of time in these pants teaching students and free riding when able, so I got many hours in these pants. Their waterproofing held up except on the butt, which, in the wet spring conditions, did dampen on the inside a little. These pants have lots of nice, deep pockets so you can carry snacks, mp3, cell phone, etc. These pants work in cold, snowy weather, but they are mainly for mid-season temperatures ranging low 40 to high 20s before drastic layering is needed.
"My First High Quality Boots" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Burton Moto
  • Pros:  Waterproof, Durable, Fairly comfortable
  • Cons:  Heavy, Regular Laces hurt my hands, Hard to tighten
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  9 (at the time)
  • Boot Size:  9.5

Experience:   This was my first quality boot (succeeding my old morrows), the sizing on these boots is very near on spot for comfort. They are somewhat stiff so the beginning freestyler may want to look elsewhere. These boots are very heavy and stiff, so using the old school hand lacing is very difficult to get any amount of tension. However, I put 2 heavy seasons on these boots and they still work perfectly fine, they aren't shredding, they still are waterproof, etc. However, I retired these boots because I grew out of them. These are good boots for an intermediate freerider.
"Comfortable and Affordable" 4/20/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Ride Jackson Boa Coiler
  • Pros:  Inner Liner is easy to tighten, Newer Boa system prevents loose wires , Shell has tough stiching
  • Cons:  Shell isn't completely water proof, Liner down't let sweat out,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  10 -11 depending
  • Boot Size:  11 - 11.5

Experience:   I bought this boot from a local shop after 2 years of overuse on my K2 Raiders. These boots break in quickly but still have tension when tightened. Perfect for the way I prefer my boot, tightened but still flexes with my leg. They are comfortable, they don't have natural pressure points, and the spring-based boa system works like a charm. The liners do get wet on the outside, but water does not soak through, however, this prevents from the release of moisture from the inside. You can't have everything when it comes to boots.
"Nothing Fantastic, but Effective" 4/18/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Flux Super Embleming
  • Pros:  Material is very tough, Will last for years, Highbacks have enough give for the park rider
  • Cons:  Ratchets are cheap and sticky,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Not the best Flux Binding I have ever had, but it serves its purpose and doesn't give me too many problems, and none are very notable. These bindings work, they are very solid, very durable. They work for freestyle, freeride, powder, basically all mountain. To sum up this review in a word: Dependable.
"Best stomp available" 4/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Spade
  • Pros:  Exceptionally Sharp, Sticks Easily and Strongly,
  • Cons:  Hard to remove,

Experience:   I have this stomp on an old Lamar, and it is a very effective stomp. The spike break if you are careless or if people run over your board regularly. This stomp pad is a challenge to remove because the adhesive is very high quality. Spikes are quite sharp and can cut your clothes but they grip your boot very well. Good stomp for beginners.
"I always ride Flux" 3/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flux Super Emblem
  • Pros:  Flexible, strong, light, Wonderful ratchets, straps and base plate are confortable
  • Cons:  Toe straps scuff easily,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I have been a Flux fan for many years after buying an old pair (new at the time) of Super Titans. These, unlike the Super Titans, are much more flexible and the ratchets are improved over their Super Emblem 2007 predecessors. One thing that has greatly pleased me on Flux Bindings is the ratchet system, they are comfortable to use, sturdy, and ergonomic. The base plate creates a dip between the toes and heels, but it isn't uncomfortable nor distracting, but it is a little odd at first. So far, the toe strap seems to get scuffed easily, though whether this will be a problem or not, time will only tell. Another point I like is the easy adjustments throughout the board from the high-back angles to strap lengths. Flux has always made good products, and this is not exception.
"Buy for Style" 2/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Grenade Brainwasher Gloves
  • Pros:  Good for most weather conditions, Handles tough riding, Looks Cool
  • Cons:  Not great waterproofing, Not for exceptionally warm or cold days, Nothing special as far as tech and comfort

Experience:   I bought these gloves at a local shop in my town. They are perfect for SoCal weather which is usually fairly warm or moderately cold. The gloves are not fit for snow storms or if you put your hands in the snow a lot. AS far as comfort goes they are much like any other glove of its kind. They are durable enough to handle scrapes on hard-pack and ice If you are looking for a park and pipe glove this is a good glove, but features nothing that cant be found in other brands and designs. As with most pipe gloves, you buy it for the style.
"Best Raider Model So Far" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 K2 Raider Boa
  • Pros:  Stronger than all previous models, The Linner has a more effeciant lacing system, Stitiching is stronger
  • Cons:  Shell doesn't stop water, Liner lets water in,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10 -11 depending
  • Boot Size:  11 - 11.5

Experience:   I managed to get a sweet deal from a guy I know who owns a snowboard shop. I was not set with these boots, so I decided that buying a better was in order and tossed these to the side as a spare pair of boots. These things are not very waterproof nor are the all to comfortable. The Boas work just fine, but the padding inside is a little awkward and creates pressure points. Perhaps I may take a good pair of liners and place them in these shells. Overall, if you get these for cheap, why not?
"Long-Lasting and Strong" 4/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Flux Super Titan
  • Pros:  More compatable for the Park than the 2010 Model, Works all mountain but not too stiff, Last many years without falling apart
  • Cons:  None Really,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   This was the first high quality binding I ever owned. With 2 years of heavy use, they are still in one piece with only basic wear and tear. The fabrics and plastics are durable enough for even the most extreme abuse. The high backs are not too stiff to handle the park, but not too soft for carving and powder. If you can get your hands on these bindings even for spares, don't miss the opportunity.
"Get Dakine Nova w/ Gortext" 4/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Baker
  • Pros:  Leather, easy function cuff, easy over wrist guards
  • Cons:  Cloth shreds on ice, No waterproofing between leather and inner-liner,

Experience:   I used these gloves from a friend of after misplacing my Dakine Nova gloves. I was cool with these at first because they have leather palms, which is stronger than the plasticy material many high end gloves have. By noon that day my wristguards were damp and my fingers were cold and wet. Early morning was murder on the ice, then the water soaked in as the snow softened up. You want good, heavy gloves, get Dakine.
