Think of the children.
Nitro knows you can't just slap some goofy graphics on a full-size board and have it work for still-growing groms. Thanks to a forgiving youth-specific flex and stable yet playful zero-camber profile, the Ripper snowboard is fully equipped to get your kid on the fast track to Shredistan.
- Softride youth-specific flex is easy to handle for smaller, lighter riders
- Zero-Camber flat shape cuts down on edge hangups without sacrificing stability and control
- Powercore tip-to-tail wood core for durability and pop
- Bi-Lite laminate for a forgiving flex and lots of independent foot control
- Radial sidecut for predictable, stable turns both regular and switch
- Hi-Def FH base is fast, tough, and low-maintenance

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Absolutely love this board. It is very soft and lightweight. The zero camber feature adds a lot stability to the board but also because the contact surface is big sometimes it catches snow or takes hard turns. I also find it not as responsive and lacks a bit pop but it is far better than I expected from a flat board. This is good in the park. It can be kind of boring for shredding. I definitely think nitro's flat boards are their best. This is great as a first board.

could you use this board for street and is it a good park board?
Hey Jordanm, this board could easily be used in the streets and park if you are a smaller guy - but if you are a little older I would recommend the Demand or the Haze.
