If i wear size 11 boots can i still buy this board or do i need to get the wide?
The chart below is of the factory specs of the board if your boots are longer than the waist width of the board your boots will hang over the edge. a little over hang is not a bad thing unless it causes toe/heel drag. stay away from wide boards if you can. a wide board will be less responsive and heavier; more like your grandma's caddy. hope this helps.

im deciding between this, the dh, and the highlife. ive been boardin for 1 year, love pow, and im gettin into the park. which should i choose?
The Highlife is not at all intended for park use, whereas the DH and the Crush are virtually strictly park/urban boards. If you want a pow board, the Highlife will slay pow. If you want a park board, either the DH or the Crush will blow you away. If you're debating just between the Crush and the DH, consider that the DH is more or less a zero-camber board whereas the Crush is tip and tail rockered. If you want a board that can slay powder and destroy the park, check out the Machete or DH2.
Are you a rider that is always looking for the softest board you can get under your feet. Ride knows you well and has made the Crush just for you.
* Lowrize rocker keeps you from catching your edges, makes pressing & buttering your board effortless. But the flat stable platform from the center of you board out to where the rocker starts gives you a stable platform to set up for rails & jumps and when you do want to point it down the mountain.
*85A slimewalls give you durability. Lets face it, you're probably going to slam this deck into rails, boxes, tree stumps, etc... The slimewalls is a polyurethane sidewall that flexes naturally with your deck for a better feeling under foot, but is also going to take those beatings against rails.
*Cleave Edge - When you slide down a metal rail, your edge heats up from the metal on metal friction. When you hop off the rail and your hot metal edge hits the snow it is vulnerable to cracking with the instant cooling. Cleave Edge is 50% thicker then your average metal edge and when this happens you have a better chance of riding away without a cracked edge.
*Extruded base that is durable and can survive the constant bashing against rails & boxes.
If you're a park rat, you're going to love this board. If you're a rider that just likes soft playful decks anywhere you ride, you'll love this board.
Superb Park Board
Preface to this review: I own an 09/10 Crush, however, Ride didn't change anything (except the graphic) from 09/10 to the 10/11 version. As such, I feel this review is still equally relevant. Hope it helps.
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. 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).
Ride has done it again
This board has got to be one of the best boards out their for the price. it has an ok flex, VERY forgiving, and rides quite well actually in pow. Park wise, this is the best board i've ridden. it's incredibly stable for high speeds, great and smooth for pressing boxes, and it has TONS of pop. i'm about intermediate, i've been boarding for about two years now, and i gotta say, you won't be disappointed with this board. I HIGHLY suggest this board for beginner/ intermediate people who are just starting to get in the park scene. I myself am entering the park scene, and within a day, i was able to do some grabs like indy's, or melons. the board is great for all around, especially park, and i suggest buying this board today!

i weigh 152 lbs. and i'm around 5'7, which board size is good?
i would say 152cm for a good all around park board, 149 if you only jib
alright thanks, and one more question, i've been riding all mountain for a little while (about a year, 15-17 times total) and im starting to get into the park scene. would you recommend this board for people like me who are just starting park?
For a board under $400 it is loaded with features and rides amazing. I've been riding for 15 yrs and I have never been put into a situation where I needed more board. The low-rize rocker is stable enough to hit high speeds and bigger jumps with out washing or getting squirly but really makes it easy to ride in deeper snow. I had a 48" day in Brighton last year and didn't have another board so I rode my 55cm floated with all my buddies that were on 62cm + sized boards. The cleave edge paired with the slimewalls make this board super durable too for your kid riding rails and such all day. Overall this board super fun and can handle it's own in a bunch of different situations.

I currently ride an entry model forum 149cm board and am looking at upgrading to the ride crush, but not 100% sure what size. I was thinking the 152cm, as the 147cm might be a bit small. Will I notice much difference riding a bigger board? I weigh 72kg and am 170cm tall
152 would be a good option for you. The crush is also lighter because of the membrain topsheet. Riding a bigger board can give you more stability at high speeds or in the air. I say go for a 152, it's only 3cm longer than your current board
