In this review, Joey catches up with New Zealand pro snowboarder Christie Prior to talk about her favourite board, the Nitro Fate.

“I really like this board, it’s really stable, it’s got pop and is responsive as well,” Christie said. “It suits someone who likes to ride aggressively, with some power but it also has some play in there as well.”

Christie and Joe also discuss the Nitro Mercy, a board she recommends for someone who is not up to her level of riding. Check it out.


Christie rides hard and like a board that is stable with plenty of pop.
