By the Expert Community

Best for riders seeking a playful, surfy ride with excellent flotation in powder and nimble tree runs.

Great for
  • PlayfulnessSoft flex and flat profile make it fun to ride.
  • CarvingIdeal for carving, especially on groomer days.
  • VersatilityVersatile for cruising the entire mountain.
  • FlotationTapered tail and thick nose excel in powder.
Good for
  • Turn easeWide waist width slows edge-to-edge turning.
  • DurabilityFeatures dual impact plates beneath bindings.
  • High speed stabilitySlimewalls sidewall technology absorbs vibration.

The 2023 Ride Psychocandy Snowboard is an all-mountain board for women riders seeking a more narrow option than the Ride OG Pig. The Psychocandy has a tapered tip and cutout tail section for smoother turns in powder and more confident riding through slush and hard pack snow conditions.

Key Features:

  • Directional Zero Camber – The board has a traditional zero camber shape with plenty of rocker through the tip for better float in deep pow.
  • Women's Specific Wood Core – The lightweight Paulownia wood stringers combined with high-strength Aspen creates a light and powerful riding experience.
  • Carbon Slimewalls – The carbon fiber Slimewalls on the outside edges offer stability and greater responsiveness on the turn.

This board is for the rider who wants to charge the entire mountain, focuses on powder, and loves to boost side hits.

Marisa Cook tested this product
The Ride Psychocandy Snowboard is an aggressive and stiff board, making it ideal for advanced riders who are looking for a board that specializes in deep powder and carving. The directional shape of the board really helps to lift the nose in deep snow, giving riders better floatation. The Psychocandy features a flat profile which assists riders with maintaining stability... Read more
Ideal for
  • Deep snow ripper, excellent choice for snorkel days
  • The board's shape and design make it incredibly responsive
  • Explosive, all-mountain carving machine
Not ideal for
  • More of a specialized powder board
  • The weight lends more towards the heavy side
  • Not ideal for beginners

Honestly, I think the Ride Psychocandy is a great choice for riders intermediate and up, who are looking for a board to cruise the entire mountain. I typically ride in the PNW and really enjoy this board no matter what the conditions are that day! On a powder day, I find the Psychocandy really floats on top of the snow... Read more

The perfect board for me!

Originally posted at ridesnowboards.com on Jan 31, 2024
This board is the bomb. A perfect all mountain, all terrain, any condition ride! It's stiff enough to shred at high speeds but still flexy enough to whip through trees and hit the park. I'll set the stance all the way back for an amazing powder day ride. This board can do it all!

love the board but has week top sheet.

Originally posted at ridesnowboards.com on Jan 11, 2024
Road the board all of 8 times and found a massive peel on the top sheet. don't know if it's me of the board but overall a great board. Also thought that the tail had less pop than my other board.

So Helpful!
5 /5
I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

Austin was amazing as always
5 /5
It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

Coming into this, I do not have a lot of knowledge on skiing equipment and neither do my family or friends. Mariah helped me by being super knowledgeable, answering all of my questions, and addressing all of my concerns. She is very quick with her responses and will provide you with an array of options that are tailored to your preferences. I appreciate that she took time to discuss the details with me. I would highly recommend her services to my family, friends, and anyone looking to buy ski equipment! She is the best! :)

Riley provided expert input on my purchase. I am always very busy so online shopping is easiest, however, it can be tough when I'm a little out of my wheelhouse and need insight on what is best to lower the likelihood of a return. I have not bought skis in many years and am just getting back onto it, so it was helpful to have support making choices. They also made a couple add-on and changes based on my questions and needs. Much appreciated!
