2016-17 Grassroots Split-surfer models expand access possibilities, making the most functional and durable powsurfers on earth even more versatile. This isn’t the solution for everyone, but for riders with long ascent/descents and those wanting to access side country via ski resorts it’s a great way to access more powsurfing terrain.
The first day of the season is always the best day of the season! This year we waited a bit longer than usual and started out with conditions a bit shallower than usual too. But we have no complaints.. “low tide” is better than no tide.. and I don’t mind blasting thru the weeds. It feels so great to get out and breathe the cool mountain air, and of course to surf the beautiful whites that mother nature provides.
With only about 11 inches of snow separating the dirt from our boards it was a light-footed session, quick and mellow turns on the lower angle terrain. We listened as skis and snowboards scraped the ground, but the float of our Grassroots Powsurfers kept us floating on top.
It’s always amazing the amount of fun we can have in such simple terrain as we wait for the big waves to fill in. Stoked as ever to welcome a new season of powsurfing! Enjoy our quick and dirty Opening Session edit!

The Powsurf Chronicles Episode 4 – Big Waves
Grassroots powsurfers are designed to fuel progression in every way possible. Ripping big mountain terrain is no exception. In fact it’s one of the things they do best. Maximum agility, high speed stability and precision control is crucial when riding steep exposed terrain. Our boards pass the “big wave” test with flying colors. With bigger and steeper terrain comes bigger risk and serious consequence. This makes the feeling of conquering these big lines that much more awesome.
The Powsurf Chronicles Episode 2 – Goods in the Woods
The 2011 La Nina winter was a memorable one, powder days were plentiful but we didn’t see the sun shine for months. We all know the trees are where you want to be in times like this so we took shelter in the woods, where the visibility was good and the powder was epic.
