Board: Nitro Glory Stomper
Camber Option: Flat/Out Rocker. Flat between and just past the feet then rocker right before the upkick in the tips.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 22.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 T1DB Size 10
My Weight: 175lbs
Conditions: Mix of sun and clouds and normal Colorado conditions.
Flex: Just below a middle of the road park flex with softer tips, stiffer middle, and a fair amount of torsional give.
Stability: While not overly stable, it does have enough rebound to not buck you in the chunder.
Ollies: The flat/out rocker gives this board skate style pop. There’s ample amount of snap, but don’t expect it to boost you to the moon.
Pop On Jumps: It can take a small to medium jump with ease. Hitting the big line might be possible if you know how to hit a jump.
Butterability: The rocker in the tips coupled with the softer flex really allows you to play around on the snow with ease. Never once did the board feel that the flex was rebounding out of ground presses which made it ideal for spreading some buttery love on the slopes.
Jibbing: Rocker and a below the middle of the road flex, two things that make the board lock into presses. Board slides are a breeze as well. This board is a jib machine!
Carving: Short quick set up turns are the best for this board, long hard drawn out carves it may wash out on.
Rider in Mind: Freestyle guy that will venture out of the park and wants a rockered deck.
Personal Thoughts: It’s a well rounded small to medium sized park board or small hill deck. It has its limitations, but by and large it’s still super fun.
