Super fun deck!

First off I just want to mention that I have last year's Berzerker, I don't believe Ride changed anything from last year's 'Zerker to this year's (other than the graphics).

Two years back I bought the original Ride Highlife. It was pretty much my main board all season long, from hiking Cowboy Ridge at Stevens Pass to park laps at Breckenridge and everything in between. I really enjoyed the board, but felt like something was missing. It was a nice stiff board, but almost felt too "dead" sometimes. Not quite playful enough for my liking. Enter the Berzerker.

Taking the original Highlife, Ride softened it up a little bit, added a bit of camber between the bindings, and gave it an awesomely aggressive sidecut. The result is exactly what I would have wanted out of the original Highlife. Super fun and playful, great board feel, and great pop. Floats great in powder. I absolutely love the sidecut on this deck. The board loves to be on an edge and is very very quick edge to edge. Very precise control on this deck.

I ride this deck with my Ride Capo bindings. Great combo IMHO.

Very well done, Ride. I highly approve.

Super fun deck!
