Cruise through our top selections and dial in your ride for the season.
Burton Kilroy Custom
Built as an all-terrain freestyle machine, the Burton Kilroy Custom is a finely tuned modification of the traditional Custom. Its softer twin flex and directional shape was influenced by Burtons next generation of riders for a unique take on the constantly evolving realm of freestyle snowboarding. Traditional camber underfoot provides a responsive and predictable ride that is full of pop and energy. Step away from the norm and cut out your own unique freestyle niche on the all new Burton Kilroy Custom.
The Capita Ultrafear is the epitome of park and urban freestyle riding. A three-time Transworld Good Wood winner and a Capita team favorite, the Ultrafear features a zero camber profile with reverse camber tips to provide a playful and highly maneuverable ride. Kevlar Body Armor and cork inlays along the sidewalls increase durability and dampening for heavy impacts on rails and drops. Featuring a generous amount of pop and response, the 2018 Ultrafear comes equipped with an all new Holysheet fiberglass layup and plant based Magic Bean resin for high performance and low environmental impact.
Gnu Money C2E
This board is MONEY! Well not literally, but you'll certainly get the best bang for your buck by picking up this ripping board from Gnu. Coming in at $349.95, this board has everything you want out a park stick. The C2E hybrid camber profile provides the best of both worlds when it comes to stability and forgiveness. Don't let the semi-directional shape fool you, the medium-soft flex of this board will press with ease while riding both regular and switch. As always with Gnu snowboards, the Money comes equipped with MAGNE-TRACTION edges for superior edge hold in adverse snow conditions.
Fifteen years of heritage makes the Nitro T1 is a classic park stick that has proven to stand the test of time. Featuring Nitro's mellow Cam-Out Camber, the T1 maintains the pop and stability you expect out of a camber board, but with the ability to press and butter with ease. Rail-killer edges take the durability of the T1 to the next level for high impacts and constant abuse on rails and boxes. A 2018 Transworld Good Wood winner, the Nitro T1 is a versatile park board that has aged like fine wine.
