Hightide Hippy slasher 150 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016
TESTER: Jeff moran
BOARD: Hightide Hippy slasher 150
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 10: 10
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 FROM 1 TO 5: 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 FROM 1 TO 5: 5
FLEX COMMENT: stiff enough to ride like a bigger board, but still easy to transition in and out of any terrain
RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: 5
STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: 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 FROM 1 TO 5: 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 FROM 1 TO 5: 5
COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: 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 FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5: 5
COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: The wide nose definitely wanted to rise above
