What colour is powder?

So is the flex of the crush similar to a WWW rocker or stiffer? What would it be like compared to a parkstar or jibpan?

Rich Ewbank on October 21, 2009 at 03:43 PM

Hi Tyler,

Both pretty similar products from essentially the same manufacturer. I’ve not ridden either but from what I can gether thy’re botyh running a biax glass on a standard wood core without any additional reinforcement so they’ll both be pretty soft and forgiving. James Bryant the editor at document snowboard mag rode the Crush at the board test and loved it, said it was one of his favourites of the test for general park fun and larking around… plus it’s got graphics that change with the temperature! That’s cool!

Hey,

I was wondering how well of a park board the Ride Crush is and how similar it is to the stepchild Jib Stick and which is better.

Rich Ewbank on February 18, 2010 at 03:46 PM

Hi Avery,

Both are rockered and designed for rails and smaller hits in the park. The crush has a slightly softer flex, but the Jib Stick has rounded edges between the bindings to minimise hang-ups. To be honest provided you want to ride the park 95% of the time both decks will be great.

I’ve been looking for a light soft short park board that’s reverse camber (preferrably) and narrowed down my search to this Crush 155 or the Youngblood Chillydog 154/156, and a last choice 3rd choice of the Rome Artifact (I know not rocker)

They 2 rocker boards seem to add up pretty evenly on paper, but from what I remember the Youngblood CD seems to be lighter.

Any opinions on the 2 boards how they feel? this would be strictly a park board. I’m looking at getting this to progress my park skills.

Rich Ewbank on February 22, 2010 at 03:19 PM

Heard great things about the Crush on the boardtest, but all three of those boards are going to be perfect for playing about in the park.

I was just wondering what size of board to go for, I’m 6’5 and weigh about 200lbs,size 12 boots and would be using it for 100% park….was thinking 156w or 159w?

Rich Ewbank on June 09, 2010 at 02:33 PM

If it’s smaller jumps, technical boxes and rails you are hitting, you’ll probably get away with riding the 156W. If you want added stability to ride bigger jumps and the odd hip and quater pipe as well as hitting jibs and rails then the 159W will be better, it just won’t be as good for super technical jibs.

rydogg on June 24, 2010 at 10:03 PM

Cool, thanks for the advice!

Tyler on September 06, 2010 at 02:45 AM

Is this board forgiving in the powder for when I just can’t resist?
