Japow!

From the beginning we knew it was going to be important to have a pow board in our line up.  Given the unpredictability of the Australian winter chances are you’re not going to get to use it much here it was put on hold for our initial release of boards. But now its here. The design of this board is again paying homage to our skateboarding roots. The base takes its queues from the old Hosoi boards(or Chad Muska shortys boards for the thps kids). The top sheet tries to keep things as simple as possible with a light bamboo top sheet and simple starburst print. (please note current image is a mock up at this stage production boards to come shortly) For the board design we wanted something that could slay pow but also not feel out of place or struggle on groomers. We could give our board tech some kind of gymic name like “helium” because of its ability to float on powder but we’re bigger than that. This board will float effortlessly through the trees and hold its own in deep powder while retaining enough stiffness to hold its own on the groomers. Regular camber ensures you get more edge hold and response on groomers and in the pow, with enough pop to style some sick methods of those natural hits.
