Make the park your bi-atch.
Ride packed the Crush Snowboard with more shit than a Port-A-Potty at a bluegrass festival. The LowRize Rocker and Radial BlendZ sidecut gives you a hook-free, smoother-than-a-chinchilla ride with enough pop to make even the most skeptical park-monkey cry for joy. All this combined with the super-lightweight Membrain top-sheet and the impact-absorbing 85A Slimewalls might just leave you wetting your double-XLs in excitement.
- Thin Construction features tapered tips and tails, reduced swing weight, enhanced tip flex, and the sidewall runs past the effective edge
- 85A Slimewalls add forgiveness by absorbing impacts rather than defending against them
- Membrain top sheet uses Urethane infused fabric top sheets to reduce weight by more than half when compared to traditional top sheets
- LowRize Rocker has a flat profile underfoot that rockers at the contact points, lifting them just enough to prevent hooking without sacrificing pop
- The tip-to-tail wood Foundation Tuned Core provides durability while retaining flex
- Cleave Edge sports nearly 50% more steel to resist edge-cracking
- Fusion 1500 Base repairs and absorbs wax easily

Crush kills it even on big tables..

Superb Park Board
I bought a Crush 152 mid-season last season (09/10) because I started riding urban alot more than ever before. I already had a DH 2.2 for my resort/all-mountain/park riding needs, but I felt it necessary to scoop up a Crush for strictly urban and park sessions, and I'm very glad I did.
The Crush is an urban and park destroyer. The lowrize rocker is on point, especially for the Crush's flex pattern. It's buttery, but definitely not overly noodly, and the cleave edges + slimewalls are a must for any urban and park riding. It presses boxes, is stable and catch-free on rails (thanks to the 3 degree edge bevel), and butters/tail-blocks like no other. The lowrize rocker doesn't make this deck too unstable and washy for tables either, I used the Crush for summer camp last season and it held up on the 40 footers. That being said, it isn't ideal for all-mountain use and the stiffer Ride alternatives (i.e. DH 2, Machete) are much better suited for use in the powder as well as all over the rest of the mountain. However, the Crush doesn't mind getting filthy in a little bit of fresh. The lowrize rocker gives you some welcome float and it's just as playful as ever for some calculated all-mountain freestyle use. The Crush didn't change at all (except for the graphic of course) from the 09/10 season to the 10/11 version, so I'm still using this board for my urban/park sessions and it still kills it.
All in all, the Crush is an excellent choice for park and urban riding and can dabble in a little bit of playful all-mountain and powder situations as well. If you're looking for an all-mountain charger, check out the DH 2 or Machete, but if you're in search of a true park slayer, look no further.
Other helpful information: I'm 5'10", 150 lbs, wear size 10 boots, and always used 09/10 Ride Alpha Movements on this board. My Crush is a 152 regular (non-wide).
pretty bad ass
super buttery. awesome flex. thing rides smooth as hell when your not kicking some rails or boxes.
not a bad board, i love this thing the flex is soft as eggs :) and plus cant go wrong with the awesome panda-puss

I'm looking to get rid of my positive camber board and have been thinking about getting the Ride Crush, but first I had a few questions. How flexible is it for buttering and pressing? How does it hold up on groomers? How does it hold up on medium sized jumps? Thanks in advance!
I don't know much about this board but I wanted to give a little "warning". I bought a rocker board this year and it was cool and fun to ride, but I ended up going back to camber so until you know your really like the rocker keep a cambered board around.

I've got a size 12 boot and i've been riding a non wide board for a couple years, my boot size might be still growing, im thinking wide, anyone else got any advice?
You definitely need to be on a wide board. Do yourself the favor, you'll much happier. don't let the word "wide" scare you away, it doesn't mean it's slower or heavier, just built in proportion to the rider's foot.

This or the Burton Blunt? Park riding-obviously. Lots of boxes not much rails and a large amount of jumps
Both are good boards. I would lean towards a blunt due to my love for v rocker. But depending on how big the jumps are that you're doing you may not want a rocker between your feet. I'm sure you'd be happy on either, but the Ride may be a bit better suited for you.

I'm debating between a 152 Crush and a 152 K2 WWW Rocker for my strictly park and urban shred stick. I already have a 155 DH2 for my all mountain needs and a 161.5 T-Rice C2 Power Banana for my pow slayer. I'm basically looking for a pretty noodly board to press out on rails and boxes but also be functional on tables and hips and some limited all mountain use. What should I go with?
P.S. I wear a size 10 32 Lashed.
i'd go with the crush if you still want to take it out for a little all-mountain riding
super sich board. very flexy and great pop. excellent in the park and even in backwoods through the powdery stuff.

I'm 5'9 closin in on 5'10, from my family history it looks like I've still got some more growing in me. Should I get the 147 or 152?
get the 152
Lovin the Crush
This board is great. Light, cuts thru ice, and has decent pop. If you're a all mountain/terrain park person I'd definitely say go with this board.

Another width question......Looking at a Ride Crush for my son - 5'-11", 150# with a size 11-1/2 boot. Would you go with a std 155 board with a 253 waist or the wide 156 board with a 261 waist.
156 wide would be better. My friend has a size 12 and tried riding my 155 and hes a good rider but was havin a problem with catchin toes all day
well buddy i ride the crush in a 152 and have a size 11 burton boot and it's perfect, i know ya need a board wide enough but if you have a board thats too wide its worse then having a board that is too narrow it'll just be slow and hard too menouver and a board that is 261 wide is too big for a 11 1/2 boot hope that helps

looking for a park board. wondering if the 155 0r 158 would be better for me at 6 foot 180lbs.
Crushed my heart, in a good way
I absolutely love everything about the crush. The board handles everything thing i can throw at it. I ride the whole mountain like it's a park and when i'm not playing on something i'm charging down the hill to get to the next lil' feature. It's sweet that the crush is soft enough to press the crap out of but it doesn't get washy at higher speeds. I ride alot of rails too and still have yet to crack an edge (almost un heard of)due to the cleave edge and the tapered tip and tail combined with the membrain topsheet make it so easy to spin/noodle out of everything. The fusion base and slimewalls put my mind to ease. i don't have worry about the durability of the board for when i don't land the way i want or from sliding so many rails. It's built like a tank but way lighter. If you like messing around in and outside the park and smiling all the way down the hill then this is board for you
Taking it to the Streets!
press this magic machine all the way to the streets. enhanced flex offers a press capability that is rivaled by nothing. and along with the LowRise tech it is the bomb.com!!! if you are Urban this is you!

What is the flex like compared to a WWW rocker or jibpan?
The Jibpan features K2's WH4 core which is a very even, light,fun and jibby but is also a very responsive flex. The Jibpan actually performs decently on all mountain freestyle scenarios and has the same core as the Slayblade which is an all-mountain killer. The WWW and the Kink are more comparable to each other, so i would eliminate Jibpan if your seeking the softest board. Both are great, and the kink is definitely fun. Hope this helped.
