Description

TESTER: Max Raymer

BOARD: Winterstick Party Wave 153

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  7

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Soft, playful and easy to rip anywhere. Nimble so I wasn’t nervous getting into any zones, but had a sick profile that was super playful and forgiving.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Turns a little lazy, just a tad bit more sidecut would be sweet for me. But i think that just came from the waist width.

OVERALL COMMENTS: This thing rips. I had tons of fun on it. I like the red graphic on it more than some of the Party Wave’s you see in shops. And most of all it was just playful, I think tons of people could hop on this thing and have fun.

BOARD STYLE: POWDER BOARD      

CONDITIONS TESTED IN: HARDPACK  ICE  POWDER

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  7

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  Tail isn’t skinny like other swallows, gives it real play and give on the tail you wish you had on other swallow tails.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   7

FLEX COMMENT:  JUST RIGHT

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  It’s soft, but it has a shape that caters to it, gives it response while still being playful.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  6

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: PRETTY DARN FUN

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  again, the softness of the board with profile makes it rip everywhere.
