Skaters says: “When the halfmoon tail wrenches on the lip, you could almost hear the creak of the trucks!”, surfers would say: “The loose sliding almost feels like a twin or a quad fin”. From tight trees to small banks on the edge of the course, nothing slips through the range of the Mantaray. Stretch out your ankles and grind the lip. It will move in any direction you want it to. Guaranteed to be hooked once you try this board!
Feeling the surface of the snow under the plantar arch, once on a 3D terrain, it swims on the snow like a dolphin let loose in the ocean. Let the nose sink for a bit, then use the whole base surface to ollie out from the Pow. Lock the tail in while sliding the board sideways, and drop the nose into the fall line. Stretch out your ankles and grind the lip. It will move in any direction you want it to. This board focuses more to the sensory speed than the actual speed.
Started in Niseko by Taro Tamai, these handshaped boards not only take your riding to the next level, but they want to take you back to a time when expression of style was wholly embodied by the sport.
Terrain, snow conditions, and the size of a mountain. Every board has a unique riding experience– even on the same slope. Your individual style influences your approach to a line. In the 1990’s snowboarding became an industrialized sport and the sense of a unique, personal approach to the sport felt lost.
