HIGHTIDE HIPPY SLASHER 150 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

TESTER NAME: Jeff moran
BOARD BRAND: Hightide
MODEL NAME: Hippy slasher
BOARD SIZE (CM): 150
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Radical
OVERALL COMMENTS: So bad ass! This board is the quiver killer for sure. So much awesomeness packed into a small package. Can’t believe how well this thing handles for a 150. Super carvey. Super stable and playful. It transitions from edge to edge incredibly easy for having such a wide nose and mid-wide waste. I feel like this could be my everyday board: pow, groomers, park, pipe, trees. It kills in all conditions. Nice work!
RATE THE SHAPE: 5
SHAPE COMMENT: Even with a wide nise and tapered tail it carves like a monster. Riding switch didn’t feel weird even with the taper. So sick!
RATE THE FLEX: 5
FLEX COMMENT: stiff enough to ride like a bigger board, but still easy to transition in and out of any terrain
RATE STABILITY/POWER THROUGH TURNS: 5
STABILITY COMMENT: So blown away at how stable this thing is. Got it up to 60mph (thank you GPS Tracking) and it was holding an edge through chop no problem.
RATE THE GRAPHICS: 5
GRAPHICS COMMENT: I really dig the simple colorways w/ little bits of detail like the boards specs and the different little artworks with each high tide board’s name
RATE THE POP/PLAYFULNESS: 5
POP/PLAYFULNESS COMMENT: It felt Pretty playful and buttery. Even though there’s not much tail behind your back foot, there’s still a good amount of pop in it.
RATE FLOATINESS IN POWDER: 5
FLOATINESS COMMENT: The wide nose definitely wanted to rise above
ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE TO MAKE IT BETTER? This board could only be better if it lived at my house.
