The Phish Swallow is a surf-inspired shape featuring reverse side cut, a long drawn out nose and a tapered swallow tail. This model provides excellent float and an incredibly surfy feel as it makes its turns by displacing the snow rather than cutting like a traditional side cut. Our 3-Dimensional CDC Base gives the rails the extra bite it takes to make aggressive turns, chuck buckets and weave the tightest trees. It’s a different ride and feel than most “snowboarders” are used to, but once you master the technique this board will become a favorite of your quiver. It’s less suitable for variable snow and thicker coastal snow than many of our other models but in the proper conditions this board straight rips. Don’t let the swallow tail fool you, riding this board forward or backwards is pretty comfortable and consistent. Ideal for light to medium density snow depths from 7″-24″. Sizes best to riders with US mens boot sizes 9-13, weighing between 140 and 200lbs.
