Hi there, Just wondered if you could help me decide on a board…I’m thinkin of getting one of the following: 159 High 5 159W Ride DH (or DH2) 159w Forum Youngblood Chillydog 158cm Rome Riff. I’ll be using it in the park almost all of the time,prob in the dome. I like the idea of the flat kick nose/tail on the hi5, was wondering if it rides more like a skateboard in the park because of it? Although am worried about the 25.4cm waist width being too narrow for my uk11 feet…also, being 200lb(14.5 stone)  not sure if I’d need a wide board? How does the Hi5 compare to the DH and Youngblood? any help would be much appreciated!

Hi R,

Funny you should ask about the High 5, I have one of next year’s 157s sat about 2 meters away from me, with the seriously sick Cosmonaught graphic (check this link for an image).

Basically, the High 5 is a pretty advanced slopestyle board. It’s quite firm in flex and has tons of pop. The flat kicks are quite strange, from what I can work out they mean Endeavor can shorten the blend radius from board to nose/tail meaning the actual length of the non-tip part of the board is that little bit longer (I hope you’re following, quite difficult to explain. This means the High 5 has a lot of effective edge and surface area for a board it’s length, in other words you can ride it a little shorter than your standard freestyle board. As far as the feel, I’m not sure skateboard is an accurate description, it rides like snowboard with a firm flex, nothing loose and skate-boardy about the High Five. I think size UK 11s are going to be too big for a 25.4 waist. If you want a loose skateboard feel for indoor riding you could look at the DH2 wide,K2 Parkstar wide, basically a wider rockered deck. You’ll find that rocker boards are perfect for the kind of rifding you want to do. If you check our Youtube channel there is a review of the High 5 and a ‘king of jib’ video where we test a load of jib boards at Hemel (indoors) these are the kind of boards that will help you progress indoors.

Cool thanks Rich!Just one more question, I spotted a couple of stepchild boards at a really good price and was wondering if either the chamberlain 156mw or the corporate 162.5 would be suitable choice for my stats and type of riding.I’m really keen on the chamberlain, looks like a super fun deck, just worried it might be a bit short for me…? Cheers R

Hi R,

Sure the 156 Chamberlain would make a great jib / park board and the 162.5 Corporate will fit the bill for an all mountain ride… the Corporate is a dependable snowboard.. not many bells and whistles but a good solid snowboard.
