Pass? We don’t need no stinkin’ pass.
Who needs to drop a lot of money on a lift ticket? Just take your Salmon Drift Rocker Snowboard out on the town on a snowy day in search of rails and jumps. This jib-friendly board features the Salomon Pres-sure Rocqualizer tech, which crosses a reverse-camber rocker profile with the Equializer sidecut for a loose, skate-like feel, but with stability and control, too.
- Royal Rubber Pads in high pressure zones dampen vibrations and mellow out flat landings
- Equalizer sidecut frees up pressure on the tip and tail so that turning and spinning take less effort
- Full-length, lightweight Aspen Light core is reinforced with high-density birch strips for extra toughness

This was the first cambered board I've ridden and it is amazing. I heard all the rumors that rocker would be horrible at high speeds but it worked amazing. When I first strapped in it did feel very different because of the 4 edges mixed with the rocker. It does most of the work for you and if you carve hard like a cambered board it gets squirrely. It is amazing for park, jibs, bonks, etc..
On my first lap I ollied some snowgun barrels and I was popping a good foot maybe foot and a half extra. It was amazing. It is impossible to catch an edge with this thing.

Im 5 10 and like to ride rails mainly and some jumps, should i get the salomon salomander 151 or 154
All depends upon your weight, height is irrelevant because the board will ride and flex based upon your weight, not height. If you're less than 160lbs roughly then 151 and larger 154. Thats what I would do, but I like shorter boards too so there's some personal preference in it too.
cant decied this or horror scope or salmon...
cant decied this or horror scope or salmon salmonder(not on this site) all i do is ride rails btw
should i go with this or the forum...
should i go with this or the forum youngblood?
hey man well both these boards are tights but if your looking to hit some 35-40 ft jumps the youngblood is it. lets say your into rails and not big into jumps and when u do hit jumps there small then the salomon drift rockers would suit u well, its a soft board which could make it too lose for some jumps. hope i helped man

Horrible board. Do NOT buy
..... or maybe i'm just saying this cus I wanna be the only one at the mountain with this beast. :)
I think i'm in love.
Alright fine, here's the truth.
Great board! First session today. Don't be fooled, this isn't JUST a park board. I rode it all over the mountain, even found a little powder in the tree lines (east coast) and it floated nicely. Despite the rocker's reputation of not performing well at high speeds, I found this board very stable, quick toe to heel, and the edges dug into everything. I had little to no trouble cutting across ice patches. To my surprise, even the extruded base was fast and I haven't waxed it yet. I was passing everyone up on the flats. I'm still getting used to it but I love it. This board definitely has pop too. It's a little stiffer than I was expecting, but not too stiff for butters and presses.
I did alot of research and must've bugged every live chat expert on this site before I decided to go with this board. I considered the youngblood chillydog, skate banana, capita green machine, stairmaster, and some others.. I picked this one because it matched my needs and seemed like the best value for the money. I mean the price is just awesome for all the tech they crammed in it! Very happy with this decision, this board arrived with zero disappointments. Honest.
pretty sick. you can see the woodgrain beneath the colors throughout the entire top sheet if you look super closely
yeah these colors pop
easy view of the royal rubber pads (check the sidewalls)
