★ Test drive board: TRICK PONY
If I was checking various boards at the venue, what kind of ride would it be like in a strange way?I was curious, so I took a test drive.When I tried the test drive, it was a board that was easy to turn and very easy to ride.Because of the flexibility, I was able to do press tricks very easily.
I was surprised that switch riding was very easy.

★ Test drive board: TWIN
I'm riding CUSTOM now, and I was curious about a model with a different shape, so I tried riding TWIN.Anyway, this design, the dark feeling of the skeleton is very cool.Unlike the directional board I usually ride, I felt that switch riding was very easy.The repulsion was good and I slid comfortably.
The sharpness of carving was more than expected
★ Osaka: Pome (20 years old) / Snowboard history: 2 years / Favorite rider: Nothing in particular / Board currently in use: K2 LIFE 155, GRAY DESPERADO TI TYPE R 163
★ Test drive board: CUSTOM X
Right now, the binding is BURTON's MALAVITA, so I wanted to match the board with BURTON, so I tried a test drive. I've never rode CUSTOM X before, but it was great to ride it.Especially the carving was sharper than expected and I was surprised.It has a good grip and a sense of stability, and I am very glad that it responded according to my image.
I feel like Danny Davis !!

I like Danny Davis, so I tried riding EASY LIVIN on which he is riding.Anyway, I like the graphic of Red Zeperin.that's cool.The feeling of control was different from the board I'm riding now, and I was a little confused, but the kicker and pipe seemed to be in very good shape.
I felt that the carving stability was getting better!

★ Test drive board: FEEL GOOD
By all means, I wanted to try the stability of FEEL GOOD carving.It feels like you want to try the correct slide rather than playing.When I stepped on it, it was firm and the carving was very stable as expected.I thought it was a good match for my slip.
It was a very fun board with good operability.
