Jib everything. The Salomon Riot Snowboard doesn't view the world in the same way that the rest of us do. You see a ski resort, the Riot sees a terrain park. You see a landfill, the Riot sees a terrain park. You see a model of a terrain park, the Riot sees a really tiny terrain park. Salomon designed the Riot to slay everything in the park and take a serious, serious beating.
- Flat construction slices the pop of camber and the forgiveness of rocker in half for the best of both worlds
- Classic twin shape so you can stick every landing and then stick every landing switch
- Popster uses different thicknesses to shape the wood core profile and give the board added pop
- Royal Rubber rails absorb impacts, reduce chatter, and protect your edges from rails' nasty bites

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I rode this board for the first time yesterday at Snowbird during early season conditions with limited access to runs, but plenty of riding was had. I had this board freshly tuned and waxed as I did purchase it in used, albeit good condition. The flat camber lent itself to make for a relatively easy feel without being too forgiving and floaty, which made it perfect for a bit of trail mobbing/jibbing. The board was very responsive, and on more then one instance I was able to quickly maneuver out of the way of oncoming dirt and rock patches without skipping a beat. I did not have the opportunity to get into the park with this board, but once I spend an afternoon airborne I will elaborate further. All in all my first impressions are that this is a solid board that has a not too flexy feel while still maintaining an ability to quickly switch from full out bombing runs to jibbing and pressing
