This board’s perfect twin shape and sidecut will help set your riding straight. The Banana camber platform and biaxial glass make it easy to flex the board where you want. The jagged Magne-traction edges grip, and the beefed-up birch sidewalls add durability. An eco-farmed Aspen core minimizes the toll on taking down trees.

“Good mix of carvability and playfulness. I could carve really hard and still feel comfy on every jib.”
