T. Rice Orca $600

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

Testers doubted a board with a rocker-dom­i­nant pro­file only of­fered in a 153 could meet the de­mands of a place like Snow­bird—let alone wher­ever the hell Travis would take it. Well, af­ter a week of rig­or­ous rid­ing that cul­mi­nated in one rider suc­cess­fully send­ing it off a sketchy, 30-some­thing-foot drop, it was safe to say it’s a killer lit­tle whale of a deck. While not the most ver­sa­tile board tested, the Orca’s wide waist pro­vides plenty of float in a small pack­age. It’s a preda­tor that yearns to dive through tight spa­ces but can cut loose in the open frozen waters when given the op­por­tu­nity.
