Weston Riva 2021 Review by The Good Ride

The Weston Riva women’s snowboard is a directional tapered ride. It has camber between the feet and rocker on the nose and tail. The Riva has a stiff flex to keep it nice and stable for you at high speeds, and it cuts through soft snow and even chunder pretty well too. The Riva got an update and a few changes from last season. They beefed it up a bit to push the personality more towards a freeride board. So it leans more towards freeride than powder for the 2021 season.

The Weston Riva would be good for an intermediate to advanced rider looking for a good backcountry/side country board, a nice stable freeride board, or a board that likes to make nice big open turns down the mountain and can ride in powder as well.

The Riva felt better at higher speeds than it did just riding mellow. It felt slower tot urn when riding at slower speeds and then felt nimble when you got it going faster.

The Weston Riva women’s snowboard is a directional tapered ride. It has camber between the feet and rocker on the nose and tail. The Riva has a stiff flex to keep it nice and stable for you at high speeds, and it cuts through soft snow and even chunder pretty well too.

The Weston Riva thrives in fresh snow, open faces, and big bowls. It’s pretty fun on groomers as well, but it definitely shines in a more freeride environment. It’s a mid-wide board that has a medium fast turn initiation for smaller feet on hard pack, and would probably feel normal with riders with a bigger boot size. In soft snow the Riva turned pretty quickly though. It prefers a little more wide open space for riding. It can ride through the trees, I found it medium fast to turn in tighter spots.

The Weston Riva would be good for an intermediate to advanced rider looking for a good backcountry/side country board, a nice stable freeride board, or a board that likes to make nice big open turns down the mountain and does well in powder.
