The Deep Thinker is the directional, set back brother to the more freestyle focused twin Free Thinker. It was a board that I was really hoping that I would like, because I had heard good things from friends who have a similar riding style to me, and I like the way it looks, but it isn’t for me.
A mix between the Funslinger and Proto Type Two, that is combined with the new Shock Wave camber profile. While the Funslinger and Proto both had their good place in the line, I think that this is a good replacement for park riders.
A big upgrade from the Proto Type Two, the Synthesis has a far more aggressive Shock Wave camber profile which I loved.
The original Proto had a decent upgrade to the Proto Type Two, which gave it the asymmetrical shape and more aggressive Ripsaw camber profile. The next step up is the Synthesis, which has a bigger step up in the camber profile, and a few extra features added in the core.
Jones Frontier 2020 Review The Jones Frontier is a do-it-all ride everywhere board, and is the most affordable Jones option. Without being super aggressive, the medium flex, base contour and setback stance make it suitable for whatever terrain you like the best.
Jones Ultra Mountain Twin 2020 Review The Jones Ultra Mountain twin is the upgraded, stiffer and faster version of the Jones Mountain Twin. It keeps the majority of the overall features and style of the original, but with a stiffer core, faster base and lighter weight.
Jones Mountain Twin 2020 Review The Jones Mountain twin is a medium stiff flexing, mostly camber directional twin board that is made to ride a bit of everything. It’s a good all rounder, and would probably be my top choice if I could only choose one Jones board to ride.
GNU Hyak 2018 The GNU Hyak is a new board for 2018, and has replaced the original Carbon Credit. For a while it was a bit confusing, with the Carbon Credit coming in two versions, the regular and an Asym version. To make things easier, the Carbon Credit is only asym now, and the Hyak is what the old Carbon Credit…
Salomon Sleepwalker 2018 Review The Sleepwalker is a new board for the 2018 season, and I’ll call it now and say that this is going to be a pretty popular board. Overall its a twin jib/park board, that rides like a Villain, but costs a whole bunch less.
GNU Mullair 2019 Review The GNU Mullair is Nicolas Müller’s pro model snowboard. GNU describe it as a “directional all terrain freestyle/free ride power” board, but to me it rides like a good, old school traditional camber board.
