Past Reviews

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.  It’s not a bad board but if you are into Ride and like all mountain riding it’s not a bad board.  We liked the Bezerker better though. 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.
