Snowboard Review:

As subjective as I am when it comes to snowboard reviews one look at the Mexican style graphics and I was sold on the Salomon Salvatore Sanchez. The SS is all about value for money fun. The fact that you’ll find rubber shock absorbing pads underneath the feet just goes to show that this board is for peeps serious about shredding jibs; I’m seriously amazed it’s so cheap! My favorite feature on the Salvatore Sanchez was the really nice flex with the rocker, and the fact that it wasn’t so soft that it constantly washed out from underneath me, for a jib rocker deck it was pretty stable. I was also extremely surprised at how well this board handled at high speeds! I tail pressed this little gem down a steep bumpy run and it held firm. I’ve tested the last 2 season’s models of this board and this newly updated version is definitely a nice improvement! If you’re after a rockered jib and park board the Salvatore Sanchez is a must try! This board is definitely a good mid point between the soft as sponge Salomonder and park flex of the versatile Drift Rocker.

To be honest, the park is where this board excels but you really can have fun with it all over the mountain. To summarise I’d say that the Salomon Salvatore Sanchez is a really good jib board that keeps everything fun, which is what snowboarding is all about at the end of the day. Adding a jib deck to the quiver or buying your first board to start learning in the park, the rockered Salvatore is worth a look.

hey how i soft is this board comparitively to the horrorscope or the lib tech burtner box scratcheter?

Rich Ewbank on March 03, 2011 at 09:19 AM

@MARC - The Capita Horrorscope FK is very soft, the LIB Box scratcher is actually firmer than you would think, almost a medium flex. The Salvatore Sanchez fits nicely between the two. Firmer than the Horrorscope, softer than the Box scratcher.

im 6ft, 180 lbs, and have a size 11 boot. im looking at salomon sanchez 154, salomonder 154, and ride kink 154 for a good buttery park board that can be taken out on the rest of the mountain as well. what would be the best choice?

Rich Ewbank on April 09, 2011 at 09:28 PM

@Joe 156W Salvatore or standard Sanchez. To go any smaller or narrower would be pushing the limits of sizing down.

joe on April 09, 2011 at 09:31 PM

thanks, any other good suggestions that wont break the bank?
