The clash is an entry level board. It's a great value for beginners but the riders usually outgrow it's capabilities within a short period. A friend of mine purchased one after his first week of snowboarding. I took it into the terrain park one day to check out it's flexibility. I ended up snapping the tail behind the back binding when I had to butter a landing on a 360 it worked out for him b/c i gave him my 3 year old custom....The board has the tendency to fold like a wet noodle when extreme pressure is applied. Any advanced rider would prob tear this stick to shreds, but....it's a great intro board and a great value. Personally, I would just buck up and buy a higher end board if you're looking to ride for the long term.


I think there's a lot of other circumstances you should consider that could help to you deciding....first how close do you live to the mountains? Will your parents be able to drop you off on the weekends? Do you only get to go once a year? If you only get to take the yearly family vacation, I would wait...you still have a lot to grow, and by the time your 15-16, you will have outgrown this board. With bindings and boots, you will end up spending more than you would if you rented a good couple of demo boards. When you're a little older and not growing so much would be the time to buy a board. Especially after you've gotten a feel for the type of riding you want to do.

But, if you're able to go often, and really just want your own board, Then I would prob go a different route. B/C you will soon outgrow the capabilities of this stick. Hope that helps :-)

I would go w/the gnu in a heartbeat.... cyrus has hit the nail on the head, I snapped my friends 162 clash in the terrain park, (it was his first year and he just wanted instant gratification) but he got a good deal, he paid 150 so not a total loss. In fact, I gave him my custom to make up for it. As you get better you will end up leaving this board behind and regret dropping the 2 bills on it...trust me....

P.S. Mervin Mfg makes awesome boards!!!!

Everyone else is talking about how great this board is. I want to clarify that this is an ENTRY LEVEL BOARD. I do not recommend it b/c after a few seasons, you will quickly outgrow the capabilities of this stick. I've been riding for 16 years now, and I took my friends clash into the park to check out it's jib potential, it folds like a wet noodle and I ended up snapping the tail behind the binding landing a 360...it worked out for him b/c I gave him my old custom and he's progressing by leaps and bounds on that thing. I don't recommend this board simply b/c you will outgrow it. But if you're looking for value, then it's not bad.
