The Surfari is the ultimate insurance policy against a dry spell at your dream powder destination. This quintessential pow board also surfs hardpack and corduroy with total confidence and style. So, when you can’t cruise powder, go and surf the next best thing.
Emanating from the twisted mind of Amplid’s Peter Bauer, the Surfari’s geometry blends the predictability of an >8m sidecut radius with the nimble handling that derives from heavy taper and a stumpy tail. Its spooned nose takes the bite out of wind and temperature affected snow.
Asides from its futuristic shape, Amplid’s engineers really went berserk when designing the Surfari, tricking-it-out with HEXO2 and Antiphase, two proprietary Amplid technologies, to deliver an ultra-lightweight, but well-damped rocket ship.
Last winter, French snowboard rag, Snowsurf Magazine, put the majority of Amplid's 17/18 snowboard collection to the test. Straight to the point and super insightful, head tester Franky and his...
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s 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 and skis a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.

Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight,
Using Biaxial Glass in the construction of our shreds gives them a flawless blend of response and playfulness whilst keeping them ridiculously lightweight.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
A premium sintered plastic which readily absorbs wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting.
An advanced composite damping technology, developed in house at Amplid, which reduces unwanted vibrations for a smoother more controlled ride.
A convex nose profile which improves tracking and fluidity in three-dimensional snow. To retain responsiveness, the contact points are not lifted.
Uber light wood varieties are cut, treated and aligned in a way only our factory knows. Its strength to weight ratio has scientists baffled.
Tough, pre-cured composite impact plates placed beneath bindings and touring hardware significantly reduce the risk of topsheet dings and breakages.
Unidirectional carbon stringers placed in the tail, to amplify pop and acceleration out of the turn.
