    Comments about Ride Machete Wide Snowboard 2013:

    Having recently purchased this board, I can simply say I am extremely happy with the purchase. I was originally riding a Burton Bullet which i loved, but i wanted a board that was in between the float of a rocker board and the aggression of a camber board, hence where the Ride Machete comes in.

      I ride this board with Ride Capo bindings. I've only been out a few times since I purchased this board, but so far I love the combination, especially after getting them on clearance. I'm still tweaking the binding set up, but can already tell that I'm going to love this board.

              Bought the board for my son as a gift. Knew the machete board but was uncertain about size so I called and had all questions answered in minutes by competent salesman. Very easy purchase, very good price, very good product. Thanks EVO.

                After much waiting, finally took my machete out for the first time. I'm coming off a K2 Viper 163w and the difference was night and day. The machete is much more playful. It was what I wanted in a board since I plan to hit more park features this season. All around great board. Felt real stable bombing down the mountain.

                Not thrilled with a couple of little high spots on the base. Looks kind of like a factory second or blem board. Other than that, I'm excited to rip it.
