There may be a plethora of women’s freeride boards on the market these days, but sometimes all that’s needed is a flexible, forgiving vehicle for having fun all over the mountain – and the DC Biddy definitely fits into that category.
Would you want to gun this down groomers? Not really; it’s got the softest core that DC make, a rocker profile and a slightly beveled edge. Stay away from the XL kicker line, too.
However, all those attributes make this ideal for intermediate freestyle; let it loose in the park, on the piste or off side hits, and it’ll deliver tons of fun. The profile actually flattens out at each extremity, which you won’t notice in regular conditions but will add to the rocker’s powder performance should you take it off piste.
It’s also one of the most affordable boards on the market, so is a good choice for an entry-level rider who’s fairly confident that, once the basics have been mastered, freestyle awaits. Even if you’ve already got a more freeride-focused stick, this could be your slushy-day alternative.
