- Name: 2012 Ride Machete Snowboard
- Skill: Intermediate
- Use: Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Powder,Switch Riding
- Pros: Lowrize rocker is fun and floaty, it does everything well (though I don't ride park), & it stops me from spending money on other boards
- Cons: It's going to be difficult to buy another board!,
I love this board! I have the original, 2009/10 version though have also ridden the 2011/12 one on a demo day. The lowrize rocker is (for me) the perfect compromise between traditional and reverse camber and despite being tempted by other Ride boards this year (particularly the Berzerker and Slackcountry), I just enjoy riding the Machete too much to replace it! I'm also trying Contrabands this season and so far, reckon they're go great with the Machete, as you'd expect. Overall, a big thumbs up from me!
