Forum gave the Roost Snowboard amazing flotation and handling for fresh pow days. The directional Roost Snowboard uses a long, wide tip to keep it from submarining when the fluffy stuff gets deep, and the tapered tail and long sidecut ensure excellent response when you carve through the trees at Mach 4. Forum also gave this moderately stiff freeride snowboard its fastest base to appease the speed freaks.

Hi, I currently have a 2001 Ride Timeless and as much as I love it as a conventional 'free ride' board as its very stiff, do you have opinion on how it will handle lots of powder as I may be lucky enough to go to Japan in March, does freerid board = board to handle powder? I've ridden in it before but maybe not so much as Japan! Cheers Mark
I have the same board. Its killer in pow! A 2001 will be getting pretty beat by now. mine is. I wish i bought 2. I'm looking for a 165 plus in the timeless series.

Well I don't know what you consider a "regular" board. But what makes a powder board, or a freeride board different are a few things. First, the stance is usually set back an inch or so to put more weight in the back of the board so the front glides up through the powder, and doesn't dig down into it. Sometimes they can be directional boards as well, meaning they're meant to go only one way or not meant to ride switch. Lastly you'll want a longer board than you would a regular one due to having more surface area to stay afloat in the powder.
