Let out your freestyle spirit and go bold with your snowboard on the half-pipe. Riding park is super complex and energy-demanding. It requires bolstered endurance to manipulate both board and body into fluid tricks without eating powder. Try it yourself on Ride Snowboards’ new Buck Up park board ($530, ridesnowboards.com)—easy to handle for beginners, but with daring flexibility to deliver the perfect pop and response for intermediate and advanced riders. To get in the mood, tune in to the 2014 Winter Olympics this February to watch the world’s best athletes compete in the half-pipe event.
