Winterstick Kingwill’s Board 158 Snowboard Review 2018-2019

Description

TESTER: John Reed

BOARD: Winterstick Kingwill’s Board 158

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It just rips. Complete confidence on this shorter smaller board (for me), super fast edge-to-edge.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Nothing.

OVERALL COMMENTS: This was my second favorite board of the test after the Winter Stick ST, which is saying a lot. Snowboards are incredibly complex, and this board was just confidence inspiring. I like the straight simplicity of the ST and stiffer flex, but Rob’s board was excellent.
