まるでサーフィンのようなスノーボード、Spring Break Snowboardsが登場した!

このボードを開発したコーリー・スミスは、適当な木を見つけて、シェイプして、バインを付けてみたとのこと。

これまでにもサーフィンのような感覚のスノーボードはリリースされて来たが、ここまでボード幅が広くパウダーの浮遊感を意識したボードもなかっただろう。サーフィンのロングボードのような感覚を得られるようだ。今後、このボードの愛好者がどんどん誕生するのか、注目される。

It didn’t snow in Tahoe for almost the entire month of January. Out of curiosity and boredom Corey Smith decided to attempt to build some handmade snowboards. He was interested in long boarding style in surfing and exploring similar concepts on snow. He wanted to deconstruct contemporary snowboarding down to its simplest element and find beauty in simply turning. "I’ve always wanted to explore and experiment with snowboarding as a physical outlet of creativity," states Smith. So he ended up building some experimental snowboards. When it finally did snow record amounts in Tahoe he was glad it did. These boards provided a completely unique snowboarding experience and opened up a world of terrain previously inaccessible on traditional snowboards. Some of the boards were incredibly functional and some were purely conceptual. All the boards also serve as one of kind pieces of functional artwork.

"Building and riding these boards has been one of the most best experiences I’ve had snowboarding." – Corey Smith
