Ready for the deepest days of winter, the White Gold Shaka Snowboard has a directional swallowtail shape and Pow 3BT profile to make floating in waist deep powder endlessly enjoyable. Don't let the pow shape fool you though the Shaka also rips on groomers so you can still shred the resort when conditions aren't ideal. A huge, pointy nose and stubby swallowtail make it easy to plane across super deep snow and to bank turns through tight trees. This shape is also a bit wider, allowing you to downsize a few centimeters without sacrificing any float. Triple Base Technology starts with lengthwise camber for powerful snap and reliable edgehold, turning upbeveling the base edges toward the tip and tail to eliminate hang ups when riding flat base, also smoothly moving snow around the nose without the dreaded plowing effect of traditional camber. Pow 3BT features a narrower center flat base with the outer bases turned way up for effortless float in powder and edge to edge agility, regardless how deep it gets. Portugese cork stringers run lengthwise to substantially dampen the board's feel when you're blasting through bumpy terrain and choppy, rutted up snow conditions. Triangular carbon stringers along the tips enhance landing stability, also providing snap for loading energy into carves and popping off natural features in the woods and backcountry. The VeryLight core uses a blend of super strong Swiss poplar wood and ultra light paulownia for a high strength to weight ratio. Hardened German steel edges stand up to serious use and abuse, making the Shaka ideal for exploring beyond the manicured slopes of the resort. And because it's all about pow surfing, the Shaka features a bamboo centerline stringer that's ideal for creating a DIY split set up without worrying about outside moisture and snow compromising the core's integrity.
