Cardiff Powgoda 161 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: Woody Stone

BOARD: Cardiff Powgoda 161

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  3

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Shape

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Early rise is too early and the board is too stiff

OVERALL COMMENTS: While there are lots of boards with this shape that are becoming very common this board seemed slower in Pow from the aggressive early rise and caused the contact point when carving to be too far back. Personally I like a softer board but because this was recommended by a friend I thought to try it. It was not my cup of tea.
