The Surfari’s retro-looking shape disguises a level of performance that borders on the eye-watering. Yes, the long nose and chipped-out tail will lead to powder days talked about in the bar for years to come, but its lengthy effective edge and serious camber locks the board’s edge in like it’s on rails. Responsiveness is immediate, too, making this perfectly suited to more demanding riders.

In our experience this is the perfect camber-line for no-compromise, allmountain inspired, powder shredding. Subtle rocker in the tips generate lots of lift at low speeds and an out-of-this-world, weightless feel at speed. Underfoot camber transmits power at its best and helps for increased traction when skinning.
