Good all-mountain intermediate board

Posted

Pros: Stable, good carver, easy turner

Cons: none for now

Newbie to boarding, upgraded to the Ride Control after a few weeks on a K2 beginner board.  What a step up!  Immediately felt much more stable at speed.  Equally adept at carving as the softer flexing K2.  I don't head anywhere near the park, so the directional shape and freeride sidecut works very well for me.  Not up to speed in riding in snowy conditions except for light powder (< 2").  So far the board seems to handle light chop well.  Enough strength to plow right through without sending me off-balance.  A great board for the beginner rider moving up the experience ladder.
