Dinosaurs Will Die still keeps it a little big o.g. with allowing promodels for those they feel deserve it. Ben Bogart was tapped two years ago to get one from them and it carries over into the 2015 season. Here’s how this stunt stick stacked up.
We could have inserted some Beastie Boys reference in here or made mention of some kind of movie that involved the act of sabotaging, but instead we thought we would just tell you about this board from Salomon. It has the newest version of camber, it rips the mountain, and the full review is below.
The World Wide Weapon by K2 was the brain child of Travis Parker, yes the backflip loving Robot Food feeding Travis Parker. For 2015 it has gotten a bit of a redesign and while some people might be stoked on this, I can’t say it was for the better.
Jon Kooley was once referred to as the man with the tightest pants in snowboarding. If you know his style then you know what he needs from a snowboard when he’s hitting rails. The Glory Stomper is his pro one off snowboard of choice.
The Thrive Prestige is a snowboard meant for the lady that charges. We put Zara on it and forced her to go really fast down wide open runs and then go in the terrain park to see how this snowboard stacked up. Read more below.
The one thing people will notice this year with the Westmark is the inclusion of mid-wide versions. This is to replace the Blacklist, a board that has won multiple awards from us over the years. How did this board stack up after being renamed and built at a new factory?
Whitegold is Kevin Sansalone’s company that operates in conjunction with Bataleon snowboards. It’s a very powder oriented take on snowboarding and features Bataleons patented TBT. The Proto is a skateboard inspired powder board and the shape plus the flex pattern are very unique.
The Craft from Salomon is a board that aren’t afraid to make their board work for what they want from it. I took this board out for a day of frolicking around Breckenridge and here’s what I had to say about it.
For 2015 Bataleon is joining the rest of the snowboard world that is on a kick to make asymmetrical boards the new norm. The Evil Twin Asym is stiffer than the regular Evil Twin which adds to the uniqueness of its ride.
