Description

HKD could stand for so many things… hot korn dogs, honey kooz doodler, but instead, DC went with Honeycomb Kevlar Directional—pretty dope sh!t, n'est-ce pas?

Step on the DC HKD Snowboard and shred into a different world of possibility. This board features DC’s Honeycomb Kevlar Directional construction and a lightweight, crazy responsive, highly durable Phantom core. DC wrapped vertically laminated wood in a Dual Torsion Box, a combination of super-strong and lightweight Kevlar and carbon. This engineered construction makes the HKD stronger than a roided-out Austrian, and poppier than mom’s FM presets. DC used a laser—yeah, a laser—to finish the HKD’s sintered base, so you know you this siiiick stick ain’t your dad’s snurfboard. If you’re not into all that tech sh!t, then you’ll drool over Peter Saville’s tectonic waveform graphic for the HKD.

Great Ride

I underestimated the amount of influence a good board has on your riding. i use to ride a 158 board and i just bought this in a 153 and it is much faster and more stable this is truly an all mountain board buy this you wont be disappointed. dont be hesitant since not many people ride DC

Sweet Board!

I bought my board about 3 months ago, i just got into boarding, but now that i have improved dramatically, this board handles like a pro, whether its through powder, or in the park, the MKD is definitely a kickass board. I recommend it to anyone!

Rips

I bought this board after 7 years of riding 5-10 per season. It is the perfect board to transition from intermediate to more advanced. It handled POW like a champion, and it's pop and lightness doubled my jumping capabilities. It's a little tough to get used to how hard it grips turns but that's the nature of an advanced board.

Great deal, good look, and frickin flies down the mountain.

CAn this board be shipped to Australia?

Weird Base & Stiff

I bought this off a guy on CL, and it's definitely a stiff board. I'm 6'-4", 230 and ride a 160. It's my first advanced-intermediate ride and it took a bit to get used to the stiffness.

The other thing that I have trouble with is the base. I don't know if this is standard with the sintered 7500, but it seems that I cannot hold a wax for more than a day. When the wax eventually rubs off, the base sticks something awful and makes a sound like nylon being rubbed together. I've tumbled a couple times just from the base sticking to the snow. Not cool.

All told, it is a very fast board, and floats like a dream in pow. After getting used to how much to boss it to turn, it's a great ride. Get a wider one if you've got gigantic feet like me. I wear a 13, and my toes hang over.

Check to make sure your waxing your board at the right temperature otherwise the wax wont penetrate the pores in the base and will come right off

Great Board!

You don't see much DC boards around these days, but if you're looking for one, this is what you want.
This All-Mountain board does it all.
It's fast and responsive down the slopes and has enough flex for the park. Great board.

would sizing down help with the flex?

would sizing down help with the flex?

Responded on

Yes it would. More weight on the board means the more flex you can get out of it. However, the downside is if you are going to be riding powder, then the board may be to short for pow and the nose will dip. Also it may make so the board rides to soft in the pow and once again the nose will dip if the board is all noodley.

Thanks for your helpful response. Being...

Thanks for your helpful response. Being that it is geared more towards the advanced rider, what problems would I run into if I went with this verses a board designed for a beginner/Interm. rider? I mostly plan on riding groomers, Powder, and some small jumps.

Responded on

They only problem you would run into at all would be it being it feeling a little to stiff for you. When this happens it feels more like the board is riding you, rather you riding it. When they are stiffer boards it takes more energy to get them from edge to edge and that is when the board can feel like to much. But like I said I would rate this a 7 out of 10 which is not overly stiff and also DC makes very freestyle oriented boards that are not made to be to hard to ride. The only other drawback that you may see is that this has a twin shape. All mountain boards have a more directional shape and generally the stance is set one inch back. This means the nose of the board is one inch longer than the tail so that is floats better in the pow. Hope that helps a little more.

Is this board too stiff for a beginner-Interm?...

Is this board too stiff for a beginner-Interm? Can't find a owner review anywhere...how does it comare to other All mountain boards. I'm 5'10 135lbs and looking at the 153cm. Any thoughts?

Responded on

It is the stiffest board that DC has in their line. However DC boards in general are not that stiff. So if I were to give it a stiffness rating it would be a 7 out of 10. It does lean more toward the advanced rider, however I am sure if after a few times of riding it and breaking it in it would be quite comfortable. As far as compared to other all mountain boards..... DC in general makes very very freestyle oriented boards. With this one it has a directional core but still a twin type shape. Basically there are much more all mountain only driven boards out there. But if you want a do all board that you can take in the backcountry, ride pow, cruise groomers, and still hit the park, then this board would be perfect for everything.
