Acclaimed Surfboard Shaper Creates Powder Snowboard Using Hydro Dynamics

“I designed this board by hand shaping a surfboard blank to my specs, and then made a fiberglass mold from the shaped blank. My love for powder surfing is rooted in its freedom and challenge. I love the simplicity of not strapping in. Your free to move your feet around the board and transfer your weight rail to rail just like on a surfboard. The sensation of finessing a powder surf turn in unlike anything you’ll ever feel with your boots confined to a binding. “-Chris Christenson

If you’re in the market for a ridiculously cool, albeit a bit impractical, pow machine you have to check out Jones Snowboard’s Mountain Surfer ($399.95 USD) created in collaboration with world renown surfboard shaper Chris Christenson.  This “next level surf sled” abandons traditional and pushes the outer limits of the ocean/mountain riding continuum. Rad.

“The new Mountain Surfer is a next level powder board built to surf the earth without bindings. Surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones completely redesigned the Mountain Surfer using new materials plus 3D contours that draw from the same hydro dynamic principles Chris uses to design surf boards. The Mountain Surfer’s complex contours include a Spoon nose for float, a 3D center hull for improved glide and 3D stepped edges for turn precision. The Mountain Surfer has a sintered p-tex base and a wood core but no metal edges or binding inserts. To keep you attached after a closeout barrel, the Mountain Surfer includes a foam deck pad and leash.”
