LAST YEAR’S TWS GOOD WOOD WINNER FOR WOMEN’S PARK BOARDS RETURNS.
Playful, intuitive and responsive - the Emoticon makes snowboarding more fun by making it easier to express your own style.
A true twin shape and softer flex, the real jeenyus of this board is its unique UnderBite outline. Subtle but noticeable indents along the sidecut at the binding area re-distribute your body weight onto areas that help you turn. The effect is stable edge hold and a very confident, enhanced arc in your turn. No weirdness, just a board that rides as well as you know you can.

FLEX RATING: 3/5
UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold.
Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
