You'll be rocking turns when your friends are creeping. This board is designed to get up to speed quickly , and stay afloat in the driest fluff. Turn those flatter slopes into rip-able sections.

Yes....reverse sidecut. Why? Once you start riding in penetrable snow conditions , the principles of hydrodynamics come into play. On a snowboard with sidecut, the deepest penetrating points are at either end of your ride. This just slows you down.

This surf inspired shape puts the engaging point between your feet, allowing for tighter radius turns at higher speeds, and the ability to draw out long turns from the same board. This shape also has far less drag, as the tail section continues to fade inward when compared to a traditional sidecut that flares-out, acting like a brake or anchor. If you know you are in for fresh tracks, & seek the "surfy" sensation, this is the board for you.

We are planning two models for release in late 2012. Both are Woodies with a traditional maple laminate "skateboard" construction, no steel edges and a waxable, marine grade polyethylene finished base.

Designed primarily as a powder surfers (binding-less) or to be used with 4x4 pattern bindings. These boards SLAY the flats. You'll be rocking turns when your friends are skooching and wallowing around in the powder. The long , shallow nose enables them to get up to speed much faster than classic freestyle decks, and stay afloat in the driest fluff. Split versions available shortly after the release of the originals.
