what is the camber of this board. is it a park board mainly
Its a traditional camber board, no rocker or anything like that. Its an all-mountain board that really does it all, altho it does have a setback in stance. You can take it from park to steeps to whatever.
its whats up
i'm still a beginner, almost intermediate at best. i instantly rode better with this board. its fast, but easy to control. good pop...no complaints at all..and the graphics/color is a bonus
Any suggestions for binding setup on this...
Any suggestions for binding setup on this board? In terms of stance width and setback really. For my first day I had the bindings on the innermost holes of both rows.
that's waaaay too narrow, try to center it up, and about 21" or more apart from each other at center. For riding primarily park, or anything I guess, duck out your angles roughly 15°, -15°. Feel it out though, everybody is different, first try it on the carpet and then take it to the snow. Bring a small screw driver that fits in your pocket for all the fine tuning once you're out there. Be patient, even if you have to make changes after every run until it's perfect. You'll know it when you feel it. Good luck.
Thanks. I went with the reference stance width and felt much more stable and carved well.
Nitro Team 155
Rode it for the first time yesterday in spring/slushy conditions. I'm 5'8" 150 and overall I had a good day on the board. Treated me well on the boxes, which is something I normally don't even do. Had some trouble getting it to pop 'right' off of lips and stuff. I think I need to find a new stance that fits the directional twin nature of the board though.

Yeah this is an awesome starter board, it's has camber technology meaning easier turns, carving, and mobility (exactly what you'll need). It will give you durability, and a great place to start learning from.

Are you a fan of boards like the Burton Un...Inc, Ride Society, K2 Believer? If those are boards that you have owned or considered adding to you're quiver then the Nitro Team should be on your short list as well.
In the past, Nitro has had a reputation of having super stiff boards that weren't very playful. That has completely changed and Nitro is producing boards of all flex patterns that are playful and snappy in the right places.
The Team is the culmination of all the efforts they've made recently. The board has about a 6 out of 10 overall flex, but is snappy in the nose and tail when you want it to be and just soft enough between the binding inserts to be fun jibbing around the mountain.
The sidecut of the board is aggressive, but isn't going to hang you up on boxes or rails with the slightly blunted out shape to the nose and tail. The swing weight is great as well as setting up on your heel side or toe side edge and initiating a FS or BS spin is easy with the sidecut and the weight of the board is great to completely bring the deck around.
I was lucky enough to finish out the 2009 season out on this deck at Snowbird as was able to ride it in Utah Powder, Wet Powder, Icy Groomers, Slush, chop & regular conditions. The board charged through everything and the base was consistently fast in all conditions. If you're looking for one board that will handle everything on the mountain The Team is a great choice.
If you have a size 11 US or bigger snowboard boot, take a look at the wide model. And if you're down with the new Rocker/Reverse Camber Technology, take a look at the Nitro Team Gulwing Model.
all around ride
the team... this board is been around for a long time due to its capability to do it all... this board can ride park, backcountry, big mountain and all the trees you can handle... its the best board for what i call a true freestyle rider... this meaning the riders out there that love the whole mountain, and want to handle it all in one day.... with a side cut that handles as well switch as it does regular but still can hold an edge going 90 miles an our down the mountain... the directional twin shape gives it the most versatility of any board out with a standard camber to hold up to all the beatings, cliff drops, kickers, and pow slashes you can give it.... this board is truly one of the best riding boards i have been on... and its very wallet friendly so you still have money for ramen noodles to have for lunch...

The Nitro Team board has been in the line for almost 10 years for a reason. It performs anywhere, anytime and in any condition. The Directional Twin shape of the Team is equally at home hitting park jumps as it is taking on backcountry lines.
This year we updated the 2009 TWS Good Wood winner with our all new Mtn Flex, the perfect blend of snap and pop to take on anything you can throw at it.If youve never ridden a Nitro board before take a spin on the Team.
This board represents what were all about. Solid performance you can count on in any condition without breaking the bank. The Team will out perform boards that cost hundreds more and will do it in stride.
There is a reason Nitro has been in business for 20 years with the original owners and founders at the helm and the Team board is proof of our dedication to snowboarding.The Team board is the deck of choice for our pro rider Bryan Fox. Bryan is as no nonsense as they come.
If you need a board that is no nonsense and full of performance the Team board should be your board. Take a look at the link below to see Fox slaying it on his Team 157 pro model. http://blog.quiksilver.com/?p=4377
