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.
