Ride Wild Life 2018 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride
The Ride Wildlife has a directional hybrid camber set up (new for 2018) for the budget-oriented aggressive all mountain rider/one board quiver seeker. Its a stand out for those that prefer straight lining, good float in powder and popping off natural terrain more than anything else. However, it’s not bad for a carve or two in good conditions and it offers a pretty forgiving ride for its design.
Ride Wild Life Past Reviews
Conditions: Good Sierra snow day after a storm but very tracked up wet and thick so we mainly stuck to groomers.
Riders: James, Peter, Jimbo
Boots: Burton SLX, Salomon F3.0, Burton Fiend LTD
Bindings: Ride Rodeo
Set Up: Set back a bit 15 front -6 back
While most of Ride’s set back boards went to Hybrid Camber the Ride Wild Life is still doing a flat to rocker set up. For some this might still work pretty well as it does have a very slight advantage over most of Ride’s hybrid camber shapes when it comes to floating in powder and giving a more catch free ride. On the other hand it doesn’t have the spring their hybrid camber boards have when it comes to carving, ollies and jumps. The Wild life has a similar ride to the Ride Manic but caters more towards the intermediate to advanced rider instead of the beginner to intermediate. If are into Ride’s ultra damp personality under foot and like all mountain riding it’s not a bad board. I’d rather see Ride combine the Manic and Wild Life in to one board priced about $399 instead of having both of these but I don’t know shit about marketing and all that stuff that factors into their decision making process.
