Shinn ADHD Distortion 138 Board Test Review

More than just a wakestyle board, the ADHD makes the step-up to serious freestyle riding very accessible.”

TESTED BY: JIM GAUNT AND CHRIS BULL


TEST TEAM NOTES:

We tested the Shinns back-to-back each time over a handful of sessions, always in straps and in various water states. Our primary focus is to point average intermediates and performance freeriders to gear that will help improve their riding levels, or inject new levels of excitement. In that regard there was only ever one winner between these two, but the ADHD does its best to fight for its share of the freeride pie.

The ADHD is Shinny’s wakestyle shape that manages to cross into freeride and big air because it’s easy to ride and hold down power. It has the stiffest flex and the most rocker in the range, while new full length drive channels increase control for the hardcore power levels of the latest new school moves.
