BOARD: Weston 10th Mountain 158

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Fairly stable, nice wide shape for getting low turns, and big enough nose for plowing through the crap.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: A little to soft in the nose and tail, whooped out and went over the handlebars a couple times when I was sending myself off moguls.

OVERALL COMMENTS: I was really impressed by this board, and rode it for longer than I initially expected I would. Would love if it had a little bit more sidecut and stiffer tip and tail, but very much enjoyed the ride all of the same.
