Find your perfect board
Finding the perfect board can be as easy as knowing your body size and riding style, plus understanding how basic board dimensions effect board performance. Some boards are made to be ridden every day, regardless of conditions, other models are designed for specific conditions and terrain. Understand these concepts to narrow the search down for your perfect board model and size.
“Daily Driver” vs. “Quiver Board”
If you’re going to ride a board nearly everyday, you want a “Daily Driver” that can handle variable conditions. For most riders, Directional Freeride and Twin boards that have full size tails and camber underfoot will be best for day in, day out riding including those icy days. If all you ride is pow, spring slush, or soft snow, then an Alternative Freeride board with a short tail and surf rocker may also work as your “Daily Driver”.
“Quiver Boards” are shred sticks that you ride only when the conditions line up just right with that boards unique performance characteristics. Could be a board for that nipple deep day, a board for spring resort rat packin’, or a dedicated park/pipe board. Our Alternative Freeride and Surf Series boards are all worthy additions to your quiver. They are not designed to excel in all conditions, but in good conditions they offer next- level performance.
