Under Review: Forum Destroyer ChillyDogBy Nick Lipton • Aug 31st, 2009 • Category: Features, Reviews
Name: Forum Destroyer ChillyDog
Price: $450 US
Review: Historically The Forum Destroyer has been a great jump board, but things at Forum changed and so has this year’s boards. Now you can pick up the Destroyer ChillyDog, a reverse camber option that is surefire fun. Set this bad boy up and you’ve not only got a board that can handle your jump game, but a board that can lock into a press just as well as any other jib stick. Forum packed this one full of pop, and made it stiff enough to plow through just about any condition. I know the word stiff sends a shiver through a lot of backs, but when you’re running the ChillyDog your jib game is going to improve, even though you haven’t.
Yeah, there is both “freestyle” and “all-mountain” categories in snowboarding, but this board takes the best of each situation and blends them into one. Think of it as your all-purpose wrecking machine. The Destroyer ChillyDog can handle jumps, will make your nosepress look more believable, and can handle most break neck situations you find yourself in. I’d mark this one on your wish list.
Notable Stuff: Awesome graphic, bends a lot, all-in-one capabilities, handles speed better than a meth addict.
We tried to break every board out of the bag. The Destroyer ChillyDog didn’t make a sound even though we beat it half to death. End of story, this board is tough and that $450 you’re spending will be worth it.
We thought it looked cool too. And hey, Forum is actually giving one of these bad boys away so click on over to their site and enter to win.
All the products in these reviews were provided by the companies and we’re given to YoBeat after the review. Of course, we broke most of them in the testing process, but what can you do.
