Peter Bauer’s soulful, surf-inspired carving style inspired the public to fall in love with carving the first time around. Designed by Peter, the Pentaquark, with its futuristic geometry and construction, breathes new life into the “carving board” concept.
A little extra width at the feet makes deep carves possible without ridiculous binding angles. Full length Pop Camber transforms the Pentaquark into a coiled spring, bursting with energy and ready to catapult its rider out of each turn and into the next. HEXO2 strips unnecessary weight from the construction for a dynamic and highly responsive board feel.
Squaring-off the tail, like a race board, maximises the Pentaquark’s effective edge for next level edge hold. Its All-Terrain nose cavity adds deep snow capability while Antiphase reigns-in tip chatter to keep the Pentaquark’s edges engaged and holding speed.
Release the centrifugal animal in you!

Burly man-camber, designed for maximum edge hold and explosive pop. Pop Camber is best suited to high-end shreds where performance is paramount. It’s hard work to ride well, but being slingshot out of carves and launched high above the coping is all the reward you’ll ever need.
