The Amplid Morning Glory is pretty tapered and directional with 25mm of taper. You ride this setback on sidecut as well as a good bit more on board. It doesn’t have that washy tail tapered feel, though, and I never once felt like I needed to back weight the tail to keep it from washing out.
Oh yes, the Alps do have some sick spines - ask Austrian Amplid rider Victor Heim! But please forgive him if he doesn't tell you the exact geo data of his secret lines...
A day between some mountain huts in Italy. Doesn't matter if lines, pillows, cliffs, lips or jumps. The terrain behind those huts has it all! Together we had a blast, chilling at the huts and shredding until the sunset.
When Emily takes a few laps down P60, you can be assured that no rail, box or any kind of obstacle will be left unridden. These two girls kick things off in our latest episode of The Crap Show and absolutely rip P60!

LOVE TO DETAIL

An ode about love - or rather vocation - to built better snowboards day by day. Embark on a journey of passion and precision with Amplid's latest short film LOVE TO DETAIL. Immerse yourself in the artistry of snowboard R&D and manufacturing, where every curve, material, and innovation is crafted with an unwavering dedication to perfection. Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes look at the love and effort that goes into creating the boards that elevate your riding experience.
The Amplid Surfari is an absolute joy to turn. It’s mediumish when it comes to turn initiation for my size 9’s but it’s better than I thought. Once you get the edge committed you can weight your turns any way you want and it really drives well through a front foot weighted turn. Center and back foot weighted is pretty good too. The spring out of a turn is exceptional and it pops so well out of a hard carve. The dampening really helps you carve at higher speeds without it bucking out if you hit a bump. You don’t feel the taper and it almost feels like you are on a non-tapered board when turning...
Here is another place where the Amplid Souly Grail shines. It’s pretty quick edge to edge but when you get it on edge is where the fun begins. This has a pretty balanced if not a touch turny sidecut that can make any kind of turn. Then even better, you can weight a turn any way you want to. You can drive hard off the front foot, center weight your turns or lean into the back foot on the way out of a turn.
Watch Avran LeFeber a.k.a. "The Angry Snowboarder's" legendary video reviews, in this episode: The Amplid Morning Glory. Nothing to read really, but a lot to watch and listen. Here you go...
While snowboarding has its specialists – street rail riders, powder hounds and pipe dogs to name a few – the board that is best suited to 99% of the snowboarding population is the 'all-mountain', general-purpose ride that will do everything well. The problem with the mythical ‘one board for everything’ is that different terrain types, styles of riding and even snow conditions demand different board shapes and constructions to really excel, meaning many all mountain boards are decent at many things rather than great.
Amplid has always walked a fine line between tech-boffin wizardry and raw passion. In the former category, the brand’s crowning glory is its brace of ultra-light splitboards – the Milligram and Millisurf. While their performance is undeniable, not everyone wants or needs something quite so fine-tuned, especially when it means shelling out more cash.
TOPPTYRICON is a film featuring Big Mountain riding on the west coast of norway, from Trygg Lind, Emil Leenderts, Henrik Ulleland, Christopher Lange, and Jacob wester, with additional appearances by Calum Mcintyre, Severin Welle, and Even Melhus. The filming for this project in took place in Høgevarde for four days in January, Sogndal for three days in February, with most of the footage filmed in the Volda/ Ørsta area of Sunnmøre in March, April and May of 2023.
Although it’s a pow-friendly silhouette, the Soul Mate shares a lot of its DNA with the all mountain Singular series. In truth it’s a modern quiver of one aimed at riders who appreciate details like core profile and build quality more than some flashy artwork. They want a board that does it all, that won’t cost the earth and which will never look dated. In short, the purists.
Whats better than having a nice session on a Jump in the middle of nowhere with a nice powder landing? Here a short recap of 2 Days Out There surrounded by friends and wonderful landscapes.
In this case it took us one day to built up the kicker. On the next day we went up to jump it. Enjoy

Good Old Friend

Watch our rider Victor Heim and friends in this little movie "GOOD OLD FRIEND", all shot on his hometurf in Tyrol.
The Amplid Aloha Vibes has a mellow camber that is more pronounced near the tail but then has a pretty long mellow transition into early rise from the front foot to a little before the nose. It tracks very well without feeling unforgiving but it is super wide so kinda hard to skid a turn for smaller boot sizes like mine. Still not a deal breaker though...
We are proud to annouce that SNOWSURF MAGAZINE in France has decorated this beautiful deck with the coveted "Top 10 des meilleurs snowboards pas chers" award. We let Deepl do the translation for all non-french-speaking riders. The original french text you can read down below!
"This was the longest line of my life!" Skinning up a full day and sleeping in a bivy, to get a two minute nonstop supersteep untracked powder line - would you do that? Well, Victor Heim did. And the payback was pretty sick!
Watch Victor's line in Amplid's new video series QUOTES. And tag a friend who is into endless powderfaces as well.
The Amplid Souly Grail is part of the centrifugal collection range, which focuses on a carving approach to the mountains, from groomed to coarse powder in the case of this model. What we got was a really good freeride board with an interesting carving orientation. You get all the components of a board that's there to track, fast and far. It's ultra-stable, the grip is very good and you'll feel confident at high speeds, whether on smooth terrain or 4x4...
The winner of the ALL-ROUND SURF SHAPE award this season, the Kodama, is Amplid ‘s main new release for this season’ splitboard catalog. Available in a single 156cm length, the Kodama’s swallow tail shape, the low camber profile with early rise, plus a fat 268mm waist width, result in one of the most amazing feelings of floating on powder we’ve ever experienced. With most of its surface layed towards the nose, and the swallow tail, the Kodama is designed...
The MOST VERSATILE award of the season goes to the Amplid Tour Operator, a true quiver-killer that is outstandingly adaptable and versatile. Its directional shape – with setback stance – low camber and early rise profile is everything you need to enjoy flawless performance no matter the terrain and snow condition, from mixed snow on demanding terrain, to deep powder where a maximum floatability is required...
We really enjoyed riding this Singular, comfortable in switch with a responsive ollie pop. A snowboard that carves well, as is often the case with Amplid. A snowboard that's fun to ride, with a consistent flex that's responsive but playful without pushing you around. You'll be able to go anywhere in the resort, from the snowpark to the freeride - everything you'd expect from a versatile snowboard. The icing on the cake is the quality construction and beautiful finish.
This budget-friendly freeride offers the conventional with comfort at all speeds and smooth transitions from short to long turns. It delivers the sensations of off-road pleasure. The Soulmate is a new variation of the higher-end freerides Souly Grail and Killswitch. The design remains true to the same philosophy, seeking progressiveness and stability, but with a softer flex and a standard waist width. Long, fluid turns are impeccable, making you want to go fast...
Full-depth channels are strategically CNC-ed into the core and filled with a low-shore-hardness Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU). The TPU material has a viscoelastic behaviour, meaning it deforms under force and then returns to its original shape, but absorbs energy in the process. Our VISCO DAMP 2.0 is now extended into the tip of the board. Newly designed wave structures of the channels amplify the absorbtion effect due to the enlarged cohesion area.
"Japow"? According to popular believe, "Japow" is a term used by snowboarders to refer to the deep, high-quality powder snow found in the mountains of Japan. It's a combination of "Japan" and "powder." Japan is known for its abundant and consistent snowfall in many of its mountainous regions, particularly in Hokkaido and the northern Honshu island. This heavy, dry, and fluffy powder snow is highly sought after by snow enthusiasts because it provides an excellent riding experience due to its light and fluffy texture, which allows for smooth turns and deep carving. "Japow" is a colloquial term used to describe the exceptional powder conditions that make Japan a popular destination for winter sports enthusiasts.
