Snowboards don’t come much wider or wilder than the Aloha Vibes. Bursting with lift-generating surface-area, this stumpy pow-surfing delight floats equally well in raucous steeps and low angle, snow-filled meadows. Fat, but also nimble and playful, weight-saving HEXO2 Lite cuts unwanted swing-weight from the Aloha’s oversize chassis.
Fresh-legged or weary, the Aloha Vibes planes so perfectly in deep snow that you’ll be exploding pillows and clocking-up turns until last lifts without a hint of leg burn.
The Aloha Vibes is one of 5 radically different snowboards in Amplid's FUTURE SHAPES family. Featuring out-there geometry and clever design features our Future Shapes boards bring new sensations to deep snow shredding.
ACT Magazine, French purveyor of great snowboarding content, put a good number of Amplid's 18/19 collection through its rigorous board test last spring. As you can read from the reviews, they liked...
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Its toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.

This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
A narrow band of uni-directional carbon stringers that run through the centreline of a ski or snowboard from tip-to-tail increasing pop and extending flex memory without altering torsional stiffness.
Max effective edge and square centimeters for floatation in the minimum board or ski length. Unsinkable, but nimble pow shreds, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and insane edge-hold or the ultimate all-mountain ski shape recipe.
Ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.
Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2-Lite replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight.
