2012 Arbor Westmark Used and Reviewed
So once again this was a board that was demanded to be ridden by you the readers. Well this time instead of my perspective on it we sent little Kevin out into the cold cruel temperatures of Winter Park to give his take on one of Arbors premier stunt stick facilitating vehicles. This is what he had to say about it.
Board: Arbor Westmark
Camber Option: System parabolic rocker. Center reverse.
Bindings: Flux TT30’s
Stance: 22in Goofy
Boots: Ride Phytop LE 9
My Weight: 145
Resort: Winter park
Conditions: Cold , crusty, and stealing the soul from my body one temperature degree at a time.
Preconceived Notions: I have heard nothing but good things about this board. I’ve ridden the Coda and Draft and like both. The Westmark is supposed to sit right between the two
Flex: Right in the middle.
Stability: Far more stable than a 150 with continuous rocker should be. Amazing. Throw it on edge and it feel like riding a 154 camber deck. Griptech works. Super fun on jumps and gave a lot of confidence. I never felt like I was going to wash out and it snapped off the lip great.
Butterability: Center continuous rocker. Rad.
Cruising: Arbor is the possibly the only center reverse I think works, and it works really well. It was super fun to just ride around the mountain on. More snowboards should feel like this. It did whatever I wanted it to and didn’t complain once.
Jibbing: Just like butters. Rad. Easy lock and snappy out of jibs.
Rider in Mind: Ride the whole mountain as the park and kill the park in the same day kinda rider.
Personal Thoughts: The Westmark has made it into one of my top 5 favorite boards. I could ride this board every day everywhere.
What They Say: A multi-dimensional design for park-riders who utilize the whole mountain; the Westmark delivers a higher level of pop, jump, spin, slide, and press performance, while providing the park-level durability you demand.
