Board Of The Month: Salomon Man’s Board

A full-bodied board for the big boys. This brew of lightweight woods, bamboo, basalt stringers, pop-maximizing milled core, and a straight-up camber profile give this deck a refreshingly hoppy feel. And its oversized and slightly rockered tip and tail provide float. The all-natural build minimizes plastics and resins and opts for naturally occurring materials wherever possible. With bamboo and cork layers sealing off the sidewall and a super-slick sintered base, it’s one smooth ride that’ll charge the whole mountain with ease.
