Considering how many boards are touted as having “all-mountain” capabilities, very few manage to live up to the name. Ride’s Farah ($500) is one of those rare all-mountain boards that actually, truly rocks on every part of the resort.
The Farah is a fast board, and not for the faint of heart. It flies down just about anything. I easily bombed across traverses that other boards got stuck on. Ride’s hybrid all-mountain rocker puts a camber zone underfoot and a little rocker at the nose. This keeps it super responsive with some of the best edge control I’ve encountered — even through the chop or on the ice. The early-season conditions we were riding in were far from ideal — ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon — but carving was a blast on everything.
Don’t forget, all-mountain includes the park too. Even though it’s a stiff board overall, Ride’s LSD (ladies-specific design) ensures that the board has just enough pop when you need it, so even park noobs will feel rad. — Karissa Bell

Sports Babe of the Day: Hana Beaman, Professional American Snowboarder
If you ever watched the X Games or love the sport of snowboarding, you will need no introduction to our next babe. Hana Beaman has been hitting the slops on a competitive level for the past 25 years. Yes, you read that correctly, Hana has been competitive snowboarder for 25 years! The snowboard extraordinaire has competed in numerous X-Games, Roxy Chicken Jams and Burton US Opens and has consistent top 10 rankings in international competitions. She has graced many magazine covers over the years, had a series of webisodes for Snowboarder Magazine in 2011 and has been sponsored by everyone from Nixon to Rockstar, etc. Beaman primarily competes in slopestyle events and is constantly working on new tricks to add to her already impressive trick list. She has a clear love for the outdoors and unlike most of us, learning to snowboard was as standard for her as learning to ride a bike is for the rest of us. No wonder she dominates the slopes everytime she hits them. So lets get to know this snowboarding champ.

The sports spot by babes who dig balls…and pucks.
I just finished the first Australia trip of my life, and it was an amazing one. They officially allowed women in Stylewars for the first time and launched a new event called the MileHigh aswell. Both also count as 4star TTR/WST events.
To cut it short, I ended up winning both of them, had the best time of my life, got a bunch of good photos and am leaving Australia extremely motivated for a good winter. Will spend another couple weeks in NZ before returning to Europe via L.A. and then start the season in Breckenridge as usually and do the Dew Tour in December.
