A new series this year, the Collection boards are designed and ridden by team riders Tina Basich and Tara Dakides¿two incredibly talented women with broadly different styles. With Tina’s steep and deep expertise and Tara’s hucking ability, the result is a fast and stable ride with some extra pop.

Product Manager John Moore says the Collection is a “narrower model with a solid flex, built for the intermediate to advanced rider.” All three testers noted the Collection’s stiff flex pattern. Janet mentioned, “It holds an edge carving on steeps and is stable with speed.”

Lisa loved it in the pipe and noted, “This could be a fun board for the right person.”
