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 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 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 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 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.
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.
The Ride Warpig is a new board for 2017, that comes in two sizes – small and large. It is made to be an easy carving, park board that floats in pow. It’s one of those boards that is popping up in edits all over the place.
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.
