Korua Shapes Tranny Finder 2021 Review The Korua Shapes Tranny Finder was one of those boards that was recommended to me, and once I got used to it, was one of the most fun boards to carve on. The wide width gives you all the potential to get the board right on edge without hitting your boots, and makes it…
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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 Mercury 2020 Review The Capita Mercury is a slightly set back, all terrain board that is lightweight, fast and really fun wherever I rode it. It is on the higher end, more expensive set of Capita boards, but I think this one is worth it, for my style of riding.
