The 2017 RIDE Shop Trip

RIDE Shop Trip

By Brandon Pendergast | Assistant Sales Manager, RIDE Snowboards

This journey starts with a good crew and ends with killer views and LOTS of fresh POW!!! In February 2017, RIDE Snowboards took ten lucky shop riders to Monarch Mountain CAT Operation in beautiful Colorado for a private shred session. And it was a RIDE shop trip to remember.

The Meetup

The crew arrived into Denver over two days, from all across the United States. From New Jersey to Arizona, the gang was ready to get down to business. So upon arrival, we piled them  into a van and shipped them up into the mountains.

RIDE Shop Trip: Day One

For the first day of riding on Wednesday, we were joined by Kody Reeves from Clark’s Snow Sports (California), Kenny Good from Tahoe Sports Hub (California), Alex Johnson from Aspen Ski and Board (Ohio), Jared Williams from Colorado Ski and Golf (Colorado), Ellen Kaufman from Boulder Ski Deals (Colorado) and Nick Schuvieller from The House (Minnesota).

The crew on the first day. Stoked for steep and deep!

And what perfect day we had! We lucked out and got out of the CAT onto a foot of new snow. And the light wind delivered continuous refills all day. Heading out at the crack of dawn, everyone got fresh tracks and there were lots of high-fives. In fact, everyone was having so much fun that we rode hard until after 3pm.

RIDE Shop Trip: Day Two

On the second day, the skies cleared and the second group of arrivals started the day with some resort laps at Salida.

The Thursday crew included Andrew Pettis from Erik’s Bike Shop (Minnesota), Mark Roberto from The Ski Barn (New Jersey), Carl Rideout from SKI PRO (Arizona), Trevor Toth from Summit Sports (Wisconsin) and the legendary Bernie Ba from PowderTools (Colorado).

Day 2 Crew at the top of No Name Bowl.

Our three local guides took us out to No Name Bowl for BIGGG POW turns and some super DOG tree laps–which was a real treat at 11,000 feet! The whole crew showed up and represented, slashing carves all day. This day defined true backcountry snowboarding: big bowls and deep tree POW.

Until Next Season

RIDE couldn’t do what we do without the support of our local shops, and this was just a small way of saying thank you to them for all their hard work this season. Also, a huge thanks to the regional sales reps who came out and Monarch Mountain CAT Operations for the expertise some of the best lines of the season! Until next year.

Droppin!

Big shout-out to Monarch Cat Skiing for a great shred!

Proof that France is also good for plenty of butter.

Check out the full video and then start talking wiz a French accent.

Topher Laws – New RIDE Northwest Sales Rep

Topher Laws was born and raised in Portland before the town was exploited for its microbrews, coffee and hipness.  Rebel Skate afforded him the opportunity to start skateboarding and after returning his first plastic Black Snowboard, he took the cash from the local skate shop and bought his first real snowboard.  He soon realized that the lifestyle was going to take over and  it has shaped his life since then.  Twelve years ago he started Evergreen Industries, a sales agency that focuses on all things skate, snow and surf-related.

“I’m excited to be working with such a strong brand as RIDE.  Being from the Northwest I have always been a fan of the company.  As far a heritage goes, there are few brands that have the roots these guys have.  That added to the new infusion of personnel and team over there makes me super hyped on what is to come.  This also means I can bust out my old Jason Ford pro model with Preston bindings!” – Topher Laws

“After an extensive 8 month search and reading through literally millions of resumes, we finally did it.  We found the perfect rep.  I am stoked to welcome Topher Laws  to the family.  I mean, sure, the Ride sales force is so handsome that when they are all together people will mistake them for a boy band or a group of traveling male models.  But I say give the retailers what they want…and they want good looking reps. Welcome to the party.”

– Jim Linnberg, RIDE Sales Manager & Corporate Badass

2013 Buckwild Snowboard Review by Shayboarder

Shay Boarder Testing the Ride 2013 Buckwild Snowboard

Read the Entire Review at Shayboarder.com

Location: Mission Ridge, WA

Snow Conditions: Hardpacked to softpacked groomers.

Setup: I rode the Ride Buckwild with Flux DMCC bindings and Vans Ferra boots size 8.

Size: 157cm

First Impression: The Buckwild probably has my favorite base graphic of 2013 and the actual ride of the board proves the fun you can have.

Weight: Average.

Flex: The Buckwild is built for freestyle but with a stiffer flex that generates a lot of pop and power through riding. Overall stiffer freestyle flex (it has a 6 on the scale and I’d agree with that). Stiffer flex from the bindings to the nose/tail of the board with a softer torsional flex for easier turning and response. The Buckwild features twin rocker with a minimal rocker featuring a long, stable flat zone that extends well beyond the inserts into the tip and tail.

Turning: Consistently an easy board to engage into turns and handled very well on edge/carving down the mountain. I liked immediately that I could charge with it without feeling unstable at any point, it handled the longer turns very well and you could just rip around on the board. The slimewalls helped absorb the mountain and good edgehold with the cleave edges.

Stable: When it came time to lap with the boys, it was the Ride Buckwild underneath my feet on the mountain. It held up for the hauling runs down the mountain, felt secure and stable. I snapped a lot of photos while riding this board and that to me is the most important review of stability, when I feel comfortable enough to ride while taking photos and trust in the board completely to not surprise me. Good edgehold with the cleave edge.

Pop: I played with the pop only on the mountains rollers and natural terrain, it felt pretty poppy and definitely an easier board to ollie than some others I had ridden. I noticed the board wasn’t as playful for buttering but it made up for it with the pop and stability factor.

Switch: The Buckwild is a true twin and rode like a true twin on the mountain. Didn’t encounter any differences in how it handled.

Overall Impression: The Buckwild offers up a park ride with the stability of the flat zone with Ride’s technology. It’s a good all-around snowboard, whether you want to ride the park or lap the groomers. The stiffer flex combined with the twin rocker and slimewalls, helped give it a really good stable ride down the mountain.

Shay’s Honesty Box: The Buckwild did a good job of standing out from the crowd at the demo and it received quite a bit of ride time because I didn’t want to get off of it. It was memorable, it was fun and it was one of my favorite boards of the Mission Ridge demo. I really liked the base graphic as well, pretty funny and at the time it was very true.
