Matt Biolos’ Japan inspired floaty nosed, powder loving swallow tail... an instant classic wall hanger that rips the whole mountain. The Retro Ripper loves riding in the storm or quiet meditative woodsy hikes into secret pow stashes for days after the last snowfall. This thing is made for smooth speedy lines and explosive slashes... take an average day and make it more surfy... take a great pow day make a memory that lasts a lifetime. Long floaty low entry nose, set back camber, beautiful Biolos lines and shape with a tail settling, nose lifting, carve enhancing swallow tail. It‘s not really retro it’s timeless.
Board Art By: Katsushika Hokusai
Inspired by a reverence for Japanese culture and a love for empty pow fields. For this instant classic powder swallow glider Matt selected one of Japan’s most iconic and revered artists Katsushika Hokusai. Hokusai produced art under many names in many styles much of which was lost in a fire in 1839. His original art, when adapted into our clear Bio Beans top material in our eco sublimation process, shows hints of the natural wood core and produces an almost 3-D visual. You can ride it or hang it on the wall... both options are lovely.

Aggressive dominant camber zones out to the contacts combined with mild rocker between your feet. Subtle Banana rocker gives freestyle freedom with maximum end-to-end stability for big, high-speed lines. For aggressive, skilled riders. EJack, Jamie Lynn, and Fredi K's favorite.
Directional shapes generally feature a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail. These shapes thrive in an all-mountain environment, as they possess the ability to ride more smoothly than their twin-tip counterparts and behave more reliably in variable snow conditions, anywhere from choppy snow to deeper powder. More twin-looking directional shapes where the difference between nose and tail appear minimal will perform best as crossover freestyle snowboards for those looking to still access the park, while more exaggerated differences will excel for additional float in deep powder.
