Board: Snofisk Puckerfisk
Camber Option: Rear Foot Power Camber. A back foot camber that helps raise the rocker in the nose.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 188lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Overcast grey skies, warmer than average temperatures that lead to the snow being less dry and more like the Pacific North West. The snow that had fallen was heavy and dense mid mountain while light and blower up high.
Flex: This board has one of those slight directional flexes that keeps it in the middle of the road spectrum. What you get is the softer nose to stiffer tail with a decent amount of torsional flex. Over all it’s not demanding but also not a slouch.
Stability: This board is stable. A lot of it is due in part to having a back foot traditional camber area. Add to that the carbon construction and you have a board that is lively yet damp and doesn’t feel dead.
Ollies/Pop: Load up the back foot and you’re going airborne. This board can snap and that is evident when popping off rollers, side hits, and variable terrain. It’s easy to load and even easier to pop.
Butterability: The tips have a decent amount of play in them. The nose obviously has more due to having rocker in it. What you will notice is that there’s a kink point right where the camber meets the rocker zone that makes it super easy to get over the nose of the board and press into the snow without it fighting you.
Carving: This board can carve. When criss-crossing groomers and cat tracks I would set the edge and let this board guide me through a turn. Long drawn out carves or short quick turns this board has no problem doing what it needs to do. The back foot camber is great for allowing you to load the board up and slingshot through a turn.
Rider in Mind: The resort powder charging guy that likes to rip a turn.
Personal Thoughts: This boards shape is unique and fun in snow of any variety. What I noticed the most about this board was how well it would spring out of a carve from the back foot. This is in part to the backfoot camber. Whether charging or being mellow you can initiate turns with ease.
