Let’s be honest, pretty much the worst thing about snowboarding is that initial learning phase. Edge catches become the new bogeyman and scorpions are the stuff of nightmares. This is where the DC Biddy makes its mark, it’s an easy-going ride created to put paid to those initial trepidations and worries.

The Biddy has a rocker profile so the nose and tail naturally rise away from the snow as you’re riding. This offers a smoother, catch free experience. While it won’t be the most stable at speed, it is a confidence boosting set-up to keep you progressing.

“This offers a smoother, catch free experience”

Learning on a rocker board is like learning to drive an automatic car, it’s a damn sight easier although you’ll never get quite the same amount of performance as a manual (a cambered board).

 A three degree bevel in the tip and tail further add to the early rise and make turn initiations smoother. Say goodbye to those nasty edge catches.

Twin boards are nice for learning on as they give you the ability to start honing your switch riding right from the get-go. The flex is uniform throughout the length, so you’ll have a nice predictable ride and the biax glass topsheet offers a forgiving flex torsionally as well.

 If you’re after a board that will allow you to progress steadily without kicking your arse for making mistakes, then the DC Biddy is definitely one to consider. 

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

“I’ve never ridden this snowboard before, and when I saw it I immediately like the graphics so I was quite stoked to give it a go. I’m not usually one to ride rocker boards so I was interested to see how I would like it. I have to say that it was such an easy board to cruise around on. Everything just felt very mellow, I was never conscious that I had to concentrate at all. I’ve had a fair few scorpions in my time, so I liked that this board seemed really unable to catch edges.

It wasn’t a super fast base, but I was just enjoying messing around on it rather than bombing down the hill. It’s soft enough to play around on, and doing tail presses was really easy. It’s a very gentle board, although it can get quite dynamic when you push it. It’s still responsive enough to ride properly and to get cavring, it’s just in a nicer way. I think it would be a great board for a rider who just wants to have fun, or a newer rider who wants something really easy going to boost their confidence. It looks great and it handles like a dream- whats not to like?”
