Snowboard Review:

The Salomon Official is a great board for anybody looking for a good, solid all-rounder. It dealt well with the icy morning pistes and the torsional flex in the board meant that initiating turns on steep slopes wasn’t hard but the edge still held really well when I hit the crud and turned up the pace. Jibbing around the slopes wasn’t difficult and the stability and pop gave me the confidence to try tricks even with icy take-off’s and landings. If you’re a beginner looking for a board to last for the next four or five seasons then you’ll do well to have a look at the Official because no matter how good you get you’ll still find this board rewarding. The great thing about the Official is that it isn’t too aggressive for a beginner and isn’t so stiff that it’s going to stop seasoned riders from hitting rails or jibbing around on the flat.
