Sending it past the learning curve, the Nitro Prime Blue Snowboard is an entry-level board that excels all over the mountain without doing too much damage to the old bank account. The Prime Blue is versatile enough to let you try new riding styles and new terrain so that you can discover what it is you like to do, and then durable enough to then hold up for seasons to come. The directional shape pairs well with the Flat-Out profile to create an easily controlled board that is able to be forgiving and stable at the same time. The Flat-out profile features a flat section from contact point to contact point with rocker out to the tip and tail. This combination is extremely forgiving for newer riders while still remaining poppy and responsive enough to progress with your skill set, making it difficult to outgrow this board. Additionally the medium flex is easily manipulated yet stable for newer riders and quickly becomes a fun and buttery board as your riding gets to the next level. Finally, a durable full poplar core and easily repairable extruded base will ensure that you won't miss a day on hill where you could be enjoying the winter and getting better.
