I've ridden both of these boards, and ended up using my T-rice as my big mountain hard charging board. It absolutely KILLS it on big jumps, high speeds, and bigger terrain. If you plan on using this board as your only board however, I would probably recommend the Buckwild over the T-rice. The buckwild still does awesome around the mountain, but has a few features that would excel a little better on hard/icy snow and rails, such as the slimewalls and the pop-rods that will help absorb the shock and chatter. The Buckwild also has 50% thicker edges that will help your board last longer, especially if riding in the park. Hope this Helps!

The frostbite edges are very minimal, you really have to look closely to see it. I wouldn't say its anything close to Magnetraction, but it does help out a bit. Based on my knowledge and experience, I would recommend this board over the Raygun as far as the edge hold is concerned. Aside from the frostbite, Burton also engineers the wood grains in their cores to have a more effective energy transfer to the edge under your feet. The process also has a dampening system called smooth ride that might help with chatter and as a result give you a better edge hold on rough terrain. The Flying V-shape is also awesome for All terrain Freestyle. I know a bunch of people that ride this shape and are totally stoked on how it floats in the pow but it still pops well on lips and ollies, a true "all-around" feel. The Raygun is a more conventional reverse camber shape, which will be "softer" feeling than the Process, making it float well in pow, but may not be as poppy and stable at high speeds. Hope this helps!

I rode the 154W as my primary board this summer riding park on Mt. Hood. It excelled on the rails and jibs, but got a little loose on the bigger jumps and bumpy conditions. More responsive that your average reverse camber, possibly due to the carbon-fiber in the tips, but still felt fairly soft. Its actually a flat camber which I liked on the rails because it had a skateboard like feel.

This boot is one of the more supportive boots in the Thirty-Two line, but still kills it everywhere from jibs to cliff drops. The lacing system on these boots really pulls snug on the ankle to help prevent heel-lift. The STI foam sole is nice and super-light, and when combined with the Level 2 footbed makes for a well cushioned boot. Used these while riding with a heel bruise and it was nice to have a secure ankle as well as good cushion underfoot.

Buy a dri-fit tee and you may never go back. The material is very comfortable, but also performs well on an impromptu skate session. Won't stick to you and keeps you cool by wicking moisture away from the body. The fit of these tees is, in my opinion, is perfect. I'm 6'0 165lbs and a Large is just right. Slightly fitted but great for activity without pulling up.

I rode these bindings this summer for 2 months at Mt. Hood. The bindings were great for rails and hard landings as they have a dampening material on the bottom of the binding. Aside from the well-cushioned footbeds, I also really liked the sturdy feel that the aluminum construction provides. Bombproof and dependable while still providing plenty of comfort.

I rode the 155W version of this board this summer while at Mt. Hood. The mixed camber of this board (camber between feet and rocker outside) played well on rails and kept the tips up enough to stay out of the slush, but still provided awesome stability and pop for straightlining and sending bigger jumps. Dampening material in the sidewall underfoot also helped absorb chatter on the early morning ice and served as and extra insurance policy when going too deep on the landing. Awesome deck for the freestyle rider looking to go fast, pop high, but still be forgiven on a scrubbed landing or on the rails.
