NIDECKER PLAY – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW
With a slightly softer flex than the Score and a directional twin shape this is aimed even more specifically at those just setting out on their snowboarding careers. Like the Score, the build quality on this is second to none, and despite the extruded base and generally low spec, there’s a enough in this board to keep you going for a good while after you’ve linked those first turns.
NIDECKER PLAY –WHAT THE BRAND SAYS
Want to be prepared for everything the mountain can throw at you? Then look no further. The Play’s state-of-the-art design and shape make it the perfect snowboard for any rider who is looking to discover the joys of snowboarding. Its smooth, forgiving flex will guide you through the ABC’s of snowboarding without ever punishing you for any mistakes or errors you might make.
