Nitro Squash 2021 Review The Nitro Squash was originally part of the Quiver series of boards, but got popular enough to become its own separate model in the regular lineup. There are now mens and womens regular and split options, as well as youth sizes. A new size for the 2021 season is the 163cm wide version, which has a…
Nitro Drop 2020 Review The Nitro Drop is an all mountain, directional board that is designed to be the one board you can take anywhere, no matter the conditions. The Cam-Out profile gives it a solid feel if you are carving on groomers, and the directional shape gives it extra float in powder.
The Capita Birds Of A Feather is their popular, ride everywhere womens board that has the right balance of camber and features to make it a fun to ride everywhere. It shares the same features as the award winning mens DOA, and is made in lots of sizes as is it such a popular choice.
The new Kilroy Pow is based on the Stun Gun shape, but has a few features changes to keep the price down. A good value option for someone who doesn’t want to spends too much, but still needs the features of higher end boards.
The Woodcarver is one of Nitro’s high end, carving boards that is still made to float in powder. It is a smooth and fast turning board that can handle a lot, but it isn’t a cheap one.
The 2021 Slash is a giant change from previous years, where it is pretty much a completely new board now. I first rode the Slash in 2018, when it only came in the 163cm, and had the shaped balsa core. I liked it back then, but the the main thing the two boards have in common now is the name.
The Bataleon Surfer LTD would be the most expensive board that I have ever ridden, and although I had heard good things, I was still really surprised about how well it rode. The LTD is the special limited version of the Surfer, with an upgraded base and lighter core, with only 150 being made.
Burton Free Thinker 2020 Review The Burton Free Thinker is a medium flexing, traditional camber twin board, which is exactly the type of ride I like. It is one of the two of Danny Davis’ boards, while the other Deep Thinker has a directional shape and directional camber. These sit in the middle of the Burton range, with decent features,…
Burton Skeleton Key 2020 Review The Burton Skeleton Key is a directional shaped board, that has a pretty good mix of camber and rocker which makes it a good board for all-mountain riding.
Capita Asymulator 2020 Review Although it seems like a new model this year, the Capita Asymulator is the new name for the older Spring Break Twin. I guess that over the past couple of seasons it got popular enough to move into the regular Capita lineup.
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.
