Venture Odin 2014 - 2012 Review by The Good Ride

Venture usually has 4 boards in their line but in 2011 they dropped their ultra powder board called the Euphoria and went down to 3.  For 2012 Venture brought back a 4th called the Venture Odin.

2013 Venture Odin

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

The Venture Odin has some similarities to the old Euphoria but more differences.  The bottom line is this is a great board with solid float.  It’s a very off the tail surfy kind of ride.

It has that powder shape similar to the old Euphoria but has a lot less of a set back (-40mm vs -75mm) and less of a taper (11mm vs 21mm).

This is still a surfy ride but nowhere near as surfy as the old euphoria.

It still has more taper and setback than the Storm for those who want a little more of a surfy ride but it’s no Euphoria.  To us with the Flat/Rocker tech you really don’t have to be that far back on the tail to get the same float so this is a good call.

It’s got an easy stable ride and a lot less consequence than camber boards.

One thing is turning with this board is fun but not as fun and springy as it could be if there was some camber between the feet near the back foot. With a little more spring out of the turn, this could be a practically perfect Freeride board.

Venture seems to hide in Colorado and doesn’t even market to the rest of the US which sucks but they make some really good freeride boards.  The detail in the craftsmanship is exceptional and their split boards seem to have some of the best construction I’ve seen.

The 2014 and 2013 are very similar.
