Board: Marhar Katana
Camber Option: Zero camber flat with sideways rocker. Completely flat with a subtle three dimensional edge raise around the sides of the board.
Bindings: Flux GU15
Stance: 21 Wide 15 Negative 15 Regular
Boots: Vans Aura Size 9
My Weight: 150
Resort: Breck and Copper
Conditions: Slushy, Warm, Sunny, Spring Conditions in full effect.
Flex: Flex pattern seems consistent throughout the board. I would say it is pretty middle of the road flex for a women’s board. Not a noodle and definitely not a 2×4.
Stability: It’s really stable for a park board. I took it through a bunch of late in the day spring chunder and it cut through everything with ease. I never once felt like I was going to get tossed around.
Ollies: There’s really good snap on this one. I had a ton of fun popping off rollers and seeing how far I could send them.
Pop On Jumps: Just like boosting an ollie hitting a jump just felt great. This board was made to jump
Butterability: Not a noodle, but still really playful and relatively easy to butter around on. Perfect combination of butterability and stability. The sideways rocker helped with not getting hung up.
Jibbing: This board does great on rails, boxes, and everything else. Even with freshly sharpened edges you can boardslide through a kink without fear. Presses easily enough and stays locked in.
Carving: It really holds an edge and Euro Carves with the best of them! You can definitely go full circle with no problems. Short Radius carves and wide radius carves feel amazing.
Rider in Mind: This is a snowboard for a girl who wants to ride everything. For a girl who can hold her own in the park but still wants to be able to ride fast and rip turns down the whole mountain. The perfect board for someone who only wants one board to do everything.
Personal Thoughts: I love this board. It is one of the best boards I have rode in a long time. It is hard-charging, but still playful enough to get down on jib features. After spending one day on it, I didn’t want to give it up, had to keep riding it!
