What more could you possibly want?
The Forum Recon Wide Snowboard packs a medium-flex Compound Matix core and easy-to-ride shape that makes every day on the hill more fun than the one before. Both the rank beginner and the seasoned veteran love the damp feel of the core and smooth flow of Forum’s Free base. A generous 257mm waist width keeps your big boots from dragging on every toe-side turn. The Recon Snowboard also features a short stance setback to create extra flotation in the powder without compromising your ability to stick a 540. *We have no control over which base color you receive, but they’re all sick.

Board is legit, felt great on the mountain, smooth ride, good control. Rides great and looks great, its a brighter green than it looks like on the computer, but looks good.
Pretty good board.
No problems, no issues. Note the stance setback, it does make a big difference. I used to go duck-footed in my bindings (about 12 degrees each), on this board I'm 'regular' with 8 and 21 settings, which seems to work well. Flex is great, I'm 6ft2in 165lbs riding a 161 wide with no problems. For my height/weight, I would probably recommend a 159, but 161 was all they had in wide (which I needed for my huge feet) and it seems to work pretty well. It is a bit of a challenge carving w/ this board on hard packed because I'm a bit light for it.
i had problems the top lam came off to the front binding in 1 hour right before a comp so i could not go in it because of it. i got this board because i was on a budget. good jib board. it a little slow but all around board it is GREAT
all around decent deck
I've used this board about 10 times now and i really enjoy the ride. The price is also very awesome! It says that this board is more for beginner/intermediate riders. but i would say im a advanced rider and i have been thru many boards; this one keeps up with me very well no matter what im doing. It is the ideal all around park board. it flexes with ease for jibs and is still able to take impact from big booters, and does pretty good in powder.
I have rode this board 7 times this season and i will have to say, i am impressed with the performance. I was expecting some mediocre crap board, but it has a nice flex, easy to keep an edge, and relatively cheap. My only complaint is that is very slow. In my opinion. more for a beginner but it will do.
I've used this board for a total of 20 hours so far and it's a good bang for your buck kind of board. It's stable at those steep slopes during high speed and very versatile to help carve up the mountain. Not tailored for freestyle, but is pretty all around otherwise.
