They say: The best freestyle twin for your money.
We say: The Agenda has a fair bit of history behind it, and must be one of the most successful progressive boards around. With a forgiving ‘LowRize’ rocker profile and a true twin shape the latest version is still great value for money.
Tester says: A sweet stick for the money! Not the most stable but so playful.

- History lesson: Now one of the best-known brands in snowboarding, Ride was founded in 1992. Tim Pogue, a former Burton employee, joined forces with Jamie Salter – of the now sadly defunct Kemper snowboards – and a third friend Roger Madison to work on a new project. Their vision struck a chord with riders both in the states and in Europe who were looking an alternative to the super-sized ski brands that dominated the market. Ride’s spectacular early success drove the company’s founders to take it public in 1994. Since then it has grown steadily.
- Ridden by: Shredders who want to be alternative without going all the way. Riding Ride makes you look less like your dad kids!
