Nitro Dinghy Snowboard Video Review

"It was very versatile, I could ride it all over the mountain. It excels in deeper snow, slush, in trees as well, as it's so nimble and turny."

Who is the Nitro Dinghy Snowboard Best For?

Nitro Dinghy snowboard is best suited for a rider who enjoys a combination of freeriding, big mountain exploration, and a bit of park riding.

Nitro Dinghy Snowboard Tester Notes

"When I first stepped on the board, it was really turnkey. I was comfortable on it right away. It felt like I knew how to ride it. It definitely excelled in freeriding around the resort. It was very versatile, I could ride it all over the mountain. It excels in deeper snow, slush, in trees as well, as it's so nimble and turny. It holds a great edge because of the traditional camber in it. I found it had a lot of snap in and out of turns and I could lock in due to its width. Side hits were great, park jumps were great. Transition riding too. I had a lot of pop. I think the board is suited for the type of rider that's looking to push their freeriding, big mountain with a little bit of park in there as well. If you're looking to go out, have fun and do some good turns or get some pow and some trees. Then this is the board for you."—Ari
