The Prime snowboard offers a ride so comfortable and effortless that you will progress past the learning curve like a future pro. The progression-friendly Directional Shape allows riders of all skill levels to drop into the unknown confidently, and the Flat-Out Rocker's catch-free ride allows riders to learn new tricks in the park day after day with less chance of catching your edge. The Prime is built for riders who want to skip through the basics and get after it on a board that will progress with them yearly.

My boyfriend and I got my best friend a Nitro Prime a couple years back when he was just starting out and it was perfect. The flat to rocker profile makes it super easy to turn, press and also very forgiving on icy terrain. The downside of the flat to rocker profile is the lack of energy, so it becomes... Read more

Great Beginner Board

Posted on Dec 27, 2023
Got this for my teenage son. He has been out with me 6-7 times, and this is his first owned deck. He wanted something he could continue to learn on but not grow out of too fast. He has one day on it so far. Matched with rambler bindings and DC phase boots. They all seem to be balance well. It is fairly catch free. Has good pop, and generally enhanced his confidence. The only small gripe (and I mean small) is the top sheet has a softer/matte finish. Snow does stick to it more than glossy finishes. Sprayed it with rain-x for the next trip out.

So Helpful, Respondent, and Relatable!

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!

Soren provided excellent recommendations tailored to my needs and my budget, I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no upselling/pressure tactics. Soren is a great choice for both beginner and expert skiers looking for the right equipment.

I have been scouring the internet and every blog I could find to figure out what type of skis were right for me- and Nate helped me more during our single interaction than I've been able to help myself over the better part of a year. I can't thank him enough for clarifying and simplifying this process for me- and he even gave me other gear recommendations for when I'm ready in the future. 17/10 would recommend any day!
