Edge-to-edge carving has always been kind-of the essence of snowboarding. While many riders discover the feeling in deep powder, it's fun on groomers too. Even new school jib kids are getting into this 'new' thing. Throw in some carving specific tricks (see below), and all of a sudden carving is becoming cool! While most boards will carve to some extent, we're seeing an increase in the number of powder and backcountry influenced directional carving weapons. You can still ride switch on them, but it's their forward performance which makes them mindblowingly fun. If you're in the market for a new all-terrain shredder, check out our range here or come in and get some advice to help you choose the perfect ride.
