Comments about Nitro Ripper Snowboard - Youth - Boy's 2013:

My 7 year son just started snowboarding this year and we have been renting size 110. I bought the Ripper in size 121 and he is snowboarding better that he had before. He said it is easier to control than any of the boards he had used before and is loving it!!

    Upgraded my son (eight) to this board and it made an immediate difference to his riding, he improved in every aspect and couldn't have been more pleased especially since it was less than 100 bucks too. Great value and perfect for any kid ready to progress to the next level of riding. Thanks Evo great deal as usual. Also have to thank NItro boards for making quality boards at family friendly prices.

      This board was purchased for my 8yr son old who just learned how to snowboard this winter. It is a great board for him at a great price. He's not doing tricks or going that fast yet, but he sure was excited to get a new board before the end of the season.

          Real cool graphics. My son loved it. The Ripper also was soft enough that he learned to start linking heelside to toeside turns in only a couple of hours.

          Comments about Nitro Ripper Snowboard - Youth - Boy's 2013:

          My first board from Nitro. Zero camber feature was a little weird for me at the beginning as it is not as responsive. But the stability in this board is amazing and definitely makes a great beginner's board. If you are just starting to hit the park, and are having trouble land jumps, this board provides maximum stability. I was surprised that as a zero camber this board has lots of pop. The full edge makes carving a lot fun. I think it makes a great beginner's board as it lays between a camber and a rocker so you don't need to rush to find your style.

                          The snowboard was exactly what it appeared to be on the website. For the price, it was an excellent deal.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          The delivery was prompt and it came in perfect condition. My son has not used it yet, but is anxious to try it out.
