The Ride War Pig was introduced last season and is unusual to say the least. It is a short but wide board that I liken to a chubby little cousin who doesn't look very athletic but excels in every sport he does.
The board comes in two sizes which are 148 (small) and 154 (large - maybe for a Hobbit!). I opted for the 148 after being told the War pig rides powder like a board twice it's size, and although it was an easy and enjoyable ride in powder with nice float, I felt that I could have done with a slightly larger board.
The War Pig is a directional board with rocker underfoot and a flat zone in the middle. It also has very aggressive angles that although looks like it has been designed by someone with anger management problems, there is reason this madness as it locks in for carving and handles turn initiation superbly.
Another big plus is that it is extremely light and doesn't mind being thrown around. It has good pop and relatively forgiving so great for side hitters and kickers. It is also a playful board for jibbing around the mountain and can turn on a penny.
Not a mountain charger by any means, this is an accomplished all-rounder that is a lot of fun.
