Venture Storm 2018 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

The Venture Storm is a great aggressive flat to rocker freeride board that floats very well in powder but also does pretty well railing a turn on groomers…especially for being flat to rocker.  Unlike many boards out there, Venture makes boards for almost every boot size and it’s made in the US.

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.

How This Review Happened:  We borrowed this for an extended demo and then returned it.
Size: 161
Days:   4
Conditions:  Some thick Sierra Powder along with some pretty good groomers.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles,  Footprint Insole Technology Gameghangers Low Profile
Bindings: Union Atlas, Burton Genesis X,

Similar Boards We Like That We Tested This Against:  Yes Pick Your Line

Set Up: 22” 18 front -3 to -6 back Close to Reference Stance on groomers and Set all the way back in powder.

 
Venture Storm Past Reviews

2013 Venture Storm Split

It also comes in split and it’s a great board for those who love stable bombing rides on groomers and excellent effortless float in powder.

We are big fans of this aggressive tapered flat to rocker shape.  Especially for Powder.

For 2011 the Venture Storm is all rocker.  This is like a rocker version of the Salomon Burner and Burton Supermodel.

This rocker design lets the rocker happen after the bindings which allows for stability at high speed or flat basing but a more effortless float than it’s camber competitors   The flat between the feet helps you plain in powder better and hold an edge better than a continuous rocker snowboard.

You aren’t going to get the pop or really any pop like you would with the cambered version but you get a lot more float in pow which is a better trade off to us.

It’s a different kind of carve than a traditional board but once you get use to it the Venture Storm will do it’s job well.

This is a great back country/powder board that is not found in many places due to Ventures lack of effort to market outside of CO.

They make this board in a split, and regular shape.

The craftsmanship is top notch and Venture puts out one of the best if not the best split boards when it comes to construction in the US.

They also have a waist width that will accommodate men, women and wide feet.

For 2012 not much has changed   We aren’t 100% sold on the women specific snowboard concept and like that Venture has a smaller women’s friendly size for every snowboard. We have noticed that many women’s specific shapes don’t have the newest tech and are often smaller wattered down mens boards which sucks. Many of our women riders end up riding men’s boards anyways so we like that Venture makes the same board for men but only in a smaller size.

Venture is a snowboarding company that we hope never goes out of business. Not much has changed between 2013 and 2014.
