Summary:
I learnt to snowboard on the 158 control at 98kg I'm not the lightest person on the mountain but I think it is a fantastic board to learn on. Can be a tad sketchy at high speed on piste but in powder it's fantastic.

Summary:
I have the 07 Ride Control 158,It's a Sweet Board,Iv'e taken it up to the Mountain Once so far and It Rides Great,Great control and good pop. Was riding a division 23 snowboard(retailed for $600) before this one, And was surprised at how well my new Ride Control series performed,being one of the lower line of boards from Ride. Also iv'e been riding snowboards for around 12 years and this is about the best performing board iv'e had,Until next year when i get the top of the line Ride Snowboard ;-)

Summary:
It was okay when I was just started. I learned how to snowboard with it. It's fine when your going slow and just starting out, but don't expect to improve a lot if you're still stuck with this board. If you bomb a hill, the board will get REALLY sketchy, and you'll wipe out. CONTROL is not a very good name for this board if you're going to be going at fast speeds. The bottom is also VERY soft. Any little ice chunk will make a devasting gash. There's better boards out there.

Summary:
I learned on this board and I love it. It helped me pick up this kick ass sport in only about 3 days. Who knows, if I hadn't liked this board I might still be *shudder* skiing. :) I'm 5'7, 145 and ride the 153.
