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

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.

Such an awesome company and board. I've ridden the Party Wave 2022 & 2023 model and it's my favorite board of all time. It's my go to from Jumping Cliffs at Snow Bird to riding rails at Brighton Resort!

Not as party as I hoped

Originally posted at bataleon.com on Mar 24, 2024
The Partywave is not as party as I hoped. It’s an okay board. But float is really not good for the spoon shape. Also the board is a really bad quality. Produced in Saudi Arabia!?! Base is the slowest ever. Feels like plastic. And the side wall cracked with the first hard contact. I’m really disappointed and won’t buy Bataleon ever again. I’m sorry for this review. But I had so many boards in 30 years. And this is the worst.

Christie was incredible!
5 /5
This was my first experience on this website. I’ve always been super overwhelmed while shopping for gear and Christie made it incredibly easy and smooth. She gave me a great range of options to choose from and did a great job and explaining the differences between the chooses.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
