The Villain snowboard has been the team favorite of the Salomon team for the past few years. Rock Out Camber features a flat zone between your bindings to increase stability, camber under your feet for more response, and rocker on the tips for press-ability and playfulness. Slingshot Suspension and a Popster Booster core add more height to your ollies and extra power to your turns. The Villain excels in every type of terrain, which is why Louif Paradis rides it almost exclusively.

    This is a phenomenal park board, the camber style (twin rocker camber flat) give the board so much pop with very stable edge control. I work at the University of New Mexico ski shop and I've tested and handled so many board and the 2015 villain is on my list of favorites. The board has flex that is just right. I do not recommended for mountain/heavy powder riding. ( I went to Taos when it had 23in of fresh powder, it was fun to ride like a blade but its way too light to get major speed in deep powder unless tip was up always)

    I got sick of renting, so this is my first purchase. Couldn't be happier! Put some Burton Cartels on and I was good to go.

    So I have last years Villain,which is the same board with a different graphic(I've talked to the reps). Salomon calls this board a Backyard board. Basically saying its for creative street riding. From the first run I took on this board, I completely disagreed with all of that. This board excels everywhere on the mountain. It floats powder so well and can handle burly cliff drops and any freestyle you can throw at it. And yes it's an amazing street board that's perfectly at home in the park. I've dropped peaks in Revelstoke BC, and spent countless hours in night time jib sessions on this thing and it's just solid. The royal rubber dampening is amazing in chundery choppy conditions. Lots of pop, fast, responsive. One heads up would be that it's not a soft park board and I've seen it described that way. Lighter weight riders might find the Villain a bit too stiff(check out the Salomonder). Personally I would give it a 5 for stiffness(scale of 1-10). Happy Shredding!
