Whitegold Shaka Powder Snowboard Review 2015
Whitegold’s three-dimensional Triple Base Technology gives this board a spooned nose that noticeably lifted in soft snow. A similar, yet subtler design in the swallowtail allowed our weight to sink the back-end and toss up powder roosts. The combined curvatures also made for smoother arcing turns since the shape is already pre-bent and pre-curved. Carbon slabs down the centerline and toward the tip and tail contacts kept it poppy, stable and, powerful at speed and under aggressive riding. It’s packing a splitboard-ready center stringer inside, too.
