I loved this years (2010) regular cambered Cadence from Arbor. The same artist is back Silvia Ji, for 2011. The Cadence changed for 2011 to a reverse camber with grip tech edge. The turn initiation is even more quick and with reverse camber easier to spin. I did not get a chance to ride it in powder but expect this board to be swimming to the top for full face powder days. It is still an all mountain medium to soft flex freestyle board with an amazing forgiveness. This board was a blast. The picture is of 2010 product which will be updated when the new pics are available as of now getting to view either one of these beauties is a pleasure.

ProRize is the newest reverse-banana-cam-rock-whatever you call it design from Ride, and they are putting it on the DH2 for next year. Its basically a revised LowRize design thats built around having more pop and hard charging stability. Carbon array and pop stix make the board snap like a skate deck. It carves it pops it flexes and it slaughters the mountain top to bottom. I know the "this board can do everything" description sucks but the DH2 can and will handle everything. It is not the fastest edge to edge but what it gives there it makes up for in stability making it a sick board for hucking carcass on. It has the response and flex of a board suited for dudes who know how to shred there faces off. The DH2 is a ProRize board for people who love camber but want the advantage of float and easy landings in the pow. Slimewalls are dope as usual and cleave edges don't break as easy as regular ones do. Ride made the DH2 an awesome snowboard. It still rides like a regular board, just a lot better. If your the type of dude who either has a beer in hand or is ridin' like a son of a bitch then this board is for you!

Over this last weekend up in Sun Valley a local rail jam was put on. It was featured on the 5-11 hand rail and is the first time I can ever think of any town in Idaho putting a jib contest on an actual handrail. Here are some photos snaked via facebook all photo credits go to Cody Swenke
Also big congratulations goes out to team newcomer Sarah Silva on your first and two second place finished this weekend at the Mt. Hood regional comp! Lookin' good Sarah!
