• Easty Float
  •  Stable and forgiving but not boring.
  • Good base for the price point.
  • Soft and easy to butter.


  • Mid-level pop
  • Medium flex might be soft for some freeride riders.


At this price point, there isn’t too much to fault with the Decathlon Landscape. Other than the softer flex for a freeride board, we found it very versatile. You get a sintered base, good grip, good float, and a fun all-around turner. Compared to the other favorites at a higher price, it isn’t going to blow you away, but we can’t think of anything even close to this at this price.

Approximate Weight

Feels normal. (We don’t put in the exact weight because, with wood cores, there is no consistency in a board’s weight)


The 158w Decathlon Landscape felt pretty wide for me but soft enough for me to handle. If I had 10-11s, I would have a very easy board to control.

The 163w worked pretty well for Davey’s specs. He likes boards that are a little smaller/easier to control, but this was good for him.

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. You can of course, go bigger or smaller depending on your riding style and boot’s footprint, but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
153w: 10-11
158w: 10.5-11.5
163w: 11.5-12.5

The 158w felt pretty good for 185-190lbs for weight, but a lighter rider could easily handle this. Same for the 163w with Davey but with a much lighter rider.


You have a good bit of taper (15mm) and a pretty directional shape. You feel centered enough for friendly landings but overall pretty set back on board.

Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

Decathlon Landscape Camber

There is a decent amount of camber going to rise in the nose/tail early. It makes the Decathlon Landscape very stable and forgiving but far from being boring for more advanced riders on a budget.

Flex Personality

Decathlon Landscape flex

You have a lot of bamboo and a medium flex, which isn’t stiff for a freeride board. The nose is more medium soft. The tail is about the same as the middle, but with the rocker before it, you can butter pretty easily or wheelie up in powder.

There isn’t as much pop as some rides, but it’s far from dead on an ollie.

Uneven Terrain

The Decathlon Landscape isn’t a chunder buster and can get a little bucky in soft, thick, uneven snow, but it’s pretty good in hard, uneven snow. Overall, it’s a great all-day ride.

Edge Hold

Very competent grip in hard morning spring snow. It isn’t an ice snow specialist, but it works well enough for hard patches.


Decathlon Landscape Base

Not a very damp ride. Don’t get this if you like to point it, but it can go straight if you need to make a long flat traverse. The turny sidecut won’t fight you either and won’t feel like it’s asking you to turn.

Base Glide

For $399, I was super surprised to get a sintered base with pretty good glide. Most boards have pretty bad extruded bases at this price point.

Turning Experience/Carving

Decathlon Landscape Carve

You have a pretty quick turning board. I could even feel that with size 9 boots; Davey certainly did with his 12s. Once you get the sidecut engaged, you have a pretty turny but not twitchy turning experience.

If you want to lay down some hard carves, it’s not going to give you that powerful spring out of the turn or hold well at a committed higher-speed carve, but I still had a lot of fun.


You have a lot of taper, a lot of early rise before a big, long nose. With a 22” Stance width on the 158w or 23” on the 163w, you can get -3.375” back from the center of the board with the Decathlon Landscape. It floats really well, and I never felt like it was trying too hard in semi-thick knee-high powder. You have enough tail for a landing but enough nose for better float than many freeride boards.


It’s a very doable switch but very light in the tail compared to a twin.

Final Thoughts

So this Decathlon Landscape does some really great things for this price point, and it punches way higher than you would think for a $399 board. I’ve seen much worse boards at $449. Other than being pretty soft for a freeride board, there isn’t much to fault this for, but some might really like this flex personality as well. We did.
