The Box Scratcher is your every day, every condition, every mountain freestyle fun board. It’s poppy / floaty / buttery ways open up an entire multiverse of freestyle progression. With flat-kick nose and tail, a strong sintered base, perfect flex and a retooled shape, the Scratcher continues to navigate Jesse Burtner through space and time on his epic anthology of weird freestyle fun. Tap into the non-linear, create your own song, surf the Box Scratcher brain waves.

Revolutionary all terrain freestyle banana blend that carves the hardpack, rips the pow, and jibs everything. Rocker between your feet with flat to mild camber to contact points. Mild tip pressure for unreal float and jibbing, solid pressure between your feet for easy turning and great ice edge hold. Original Banana is the best contour to learn and progress on.
A true twin shape is completely symmetrical. If you cut a true twin in half exactly down the middle you would end up with two identical pieces of board.
This means that the nose and the tail are the same length and the same width and the bindings are centred on the board – i.e. they are equal distances from the centre of the board and the front binding is the same distance from the nose as the back binding is from the tail.
Of course, as you can adjust the width of the position of the bindings you could create a setback stance if you were so inclined but this would be unusual on a true twin given its purpose and might be a strange feel depending on the camber profile (i.e. one foot could end up being over camber and the other over rocker which would probably feel odd).
In addition to this a true twin has exactly the same flex in the nose and tail.
