If you hang out with the park crowd, the Ride Society Snowboard will fit right in.
Find the biggest jump on the mountain and point it—the Ride Society Snowboard will help you stomp it. How? First of all, Ride uses 85A-durometer urethane in this freestyle deck's sidewalls. Just like on your longboard wheels, the urethane reduces vibration for a smooth ride up to the takeoff. A screaming fast Fusion 4000 sintered base ensures you'll have enough speed to make the transition. Just before you reach the lip, ollie to get a little extra air. Hollow carbon rods over this twintip's Pop Rods core store and then release energy for explosive pop. The carbon rods also transmit power from your bindings to the edge, so you won't wash out when you land. If you still have any doubt about this freestyle board's performance, consider this—the Society is the choice of freestyle rulers J.J. Thomas and Mikey LeBlanc. *These boards arrived with assorted colored bases. We have no control over which color you'll get.

I wear a pair of 11.5 burton boots, are those going to be awkward on this board?
maybe a little bit i got to ride my friends society and i had a bit of a toe drag cause i wear 11.5's. i ride wide so maybe it just felt that way. just make sure your bindings are set right for minimal drag. this board is dope and has mad flex. my friend swears by this and has bought every model back into the mikey leblanc pros

whats the difference between a ride kink and a ride society? I have been getting more and more into the park and hitting rails but still want to be able to cruise the moutian on the freshies days.
the societys got a faster base and a more tech core. i think its got those pop rods in it that make it a lil more snappy without adding stiffness. basically you can take the society off bigger faster jumps where the kink would explode. ya dig?
Pop Rods and Membrain !
The Society is back for 2008/2009 with a couple of brand new features that make this favorite of riders even better.
Ride has incorporated the Membrain Topsheet that is used on the Concept UL into the Society making it lighter than last year.
Ride also has a new tech called pop rods, which they have put in the tip and tail of the board. Hollow Pop Rods comes from a technology used in fishing poles, this material has been used to make fly rods that you can bend 180 degrees and not snap. So what does this mean to you, you get the same great 6 out of 10 longitudinal flex that you love in the Society, but now you get an added snap in your tip/tail that is unbelievable when riding anywhere on the mountain.
Everything else about the Society has stayed the same. Max boot size you can ride on all for sizes is a 10.5 with the 25.1/25.2 waist widths.
This board is easily one of the best all-mountain/freestyle boards on the market and you get all the new tech at the same price as last years deck!
