The following is a quick overview of the 2023 Ride snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2022-23 season, and any 2021-22 boards that aren't returning with a 2023 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.

All 2023 Ride Snowboards by Category
Below, I have categorized Ride's 2022-23 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Ride might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
RIDE BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
RIDE PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
RIDE ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
RIDE AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
RIDE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
RIDE AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
RIDE FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
RIDE POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
RIDE SPLIT BOARDS
RIDE YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2023 Ride snowboards.
Out with the Old
The Back talk board designed by female pro Jill Perkins has been removed for 2023.
The Wildlife has been removed for this year but is essentially replaced by the all new Shadowban model.
In with the New
The Peace seeker is a more freeride powder orientated board that is pretty aggressive and fits into the lineup quite nicely.
The Shadowban is the Wildlife's replacement as an affordable directional all-mountain board, with plenty of Ride's latest technology.
Changes to Existing Models
All existing models have received graphic changes as well as profile changes as anything that was previously a hybrid rocker is now a standard camber and any boards that were a twin hybrid camber are now a twin extra camber. These changes, from what we can tell are just name changes for those profiles.
