BOARD: Weston Backwoods 157

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It’s like a little jumping bean in the pow. So quick and stable.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Riding quality on hardpack. Characteristics changed instantly from playful and quick to sluggish and stiff.

OVERALL COMMENTS: This thing is fun to bounce in the trees and pop off pillows and powder puffs. I was expecting more stability and glide on a 157 but was happy to compromise it for how agile it rode.
