The Curated Take

Eli Hernandez, Snowboarding Expert
Trevor Johnston, Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

The Bataleon Party Wave is a really fun party board that leverages Bataleon's Triple Base Technology (3BT) to give the board a unique, surfy feel, along with great performance in powder and spring slush conditions. I was originally attracted to this board due to the extra wide waist width (28.0 cm on a 154) as a big-footed rider. The 3D nose acts like the hull of a boat to push soft snow out and to the sides of the board, and the larger surface area under foot (even in a shorter length) aids in further in the board's float. The 3D shaping in the nose also helps the board turn faster than you'd expect from a board this wide.

I will say that the 3BT does take some getting used to and might not be for everyone. It has a slightly looser feel than a traditional, non-3D board. Carving initiation is a little more underfoot, and the tech does not lend itself to really biting into the snow hard if you typically ride in icy conditions.

Overall, I think it's a great option in the ever-growing party board / short-wide category of boards. If you're looking for a fun, unique addition to your quiver and a board that will help you take a new look at runs you've gone down dozens of times, this could be a great choice.

Ideal for
  • Powder riding
  • Cruising spring slush
  • Nice width for big footed riders
Not ideal for
  • Triple Base Technology (3D shaping in the nose and tail) may not be for everyone
  • Won't be the best choice for icy conditions

The Bataleon Party Wave Snowboard 2023 is the ultimate fun board that will take your riding experience to the next level. With decades of experience in creating 3D shapes, this snowboard has been designed to shift volume from length to width without compromising edge-to-edge performance. It's perfect for riders who want a nimble and floaty pocket rocket that dials up the fun all over the mountain. This snowboard is meant to be ridden 5-10 cm shorter than your regular deck, making it an ideal choice for those who love playful rides.

Key Features:

  • Innovative 3D shape design allows for volume shift from length to width without sacrificing edge-to-edge performance.
  • Nimble and floaty pocket rocket that dials up the fun all over the mountain.
  • Meant to be ridden 5-10 cm shorter than your regular deck, making it perfect for playful rides.

This snowboard makes powder riding feel like surfing in the snow. You get effortless turns and carving in even the deepest powder. This snowboard is a volume-shifted board, meaning it is purposely shorter and wider than what you would usually ride. For example, I, 5'11 and 185lbs, usually ride a 157, but my party Wave Plus is a 151 with... Read more
Ideal for
  • Easy Floating in deep powder.
  • Playful and light.
  • Triple base Technology making turn initiation easy and smooth, and makes pushing through powder easier then any other powder board.
Not ideal for
  • Volume shifted board so very wide and short making groomers not as fun.
  • Can take some time getting used to riding with the unique shape.

I’ve seen a lot of waves in my time, but non of them party as hard as this one. Absolutely incredible board from bataleon, this bad boy is sleek, fast, mobile, and buttery. From rails to deep pow you will be smitten by this boards maneuverability. 10/10 would even recommend to my inlaws

Vince had some really great options from me to pick on when first connecting with him. As I was checking out Vince was blowing my phone up warning me I accidentally selected the wrong board size. Seconds from selecting payout I cancel the order re selected the size and got to pick the right board for me. Thank you again Vince!

I've been shopping on curated and bouncing ideas off of Alex for some time now, never actually pulling the trigger. My budget has been hit and miss and often I've had to forego new in favor of used when it finally comes to the purchase. Alex has always been so helpful and ready to give advice on what gear is going to be best for me. I'm sure he'll be shocked when he sees I finally made a purchase 😅 thanks bud!

I've been looking to add new skis to my quiver after demoing Rossignal powder skis in Utah. I liked the demos but wasn't sure if they were the right choice. Tucker shared a few similar skis and one was the Atomic skis I had also demoed in WY. I settled on the Rossignal and Ticker also setup a bundle with recommended bindings for the skis. Overall, a great experience while making a sizable investment to enhance my skiing experience.
