Matt Biolos’ refined all terrain surf inspired ripper. The Rocket features a powerful set back camber and stance aligned with a progressive elliptical radial sidecut for trenched hard pack carving. An easy initiating and extra floaty early rise nose and powerful poppy tail rip through the storm and shine in every condition on the mountain. A wider shape with lots of planing surface explodes through no toe drag power turns and oats the soft stuff. A firm flexing, sustainable Aspen/Paulownia wood core, rugged sintered knife-cut base and eco-sublimated graphics will have you blasting around the mountain all year long.
Board Art By: “Fantastic Acid” Tristan Mausse (@fantasticacid) Tristan Mausse, aka “Fantastic Acid” is an artistic, surfboard builder out of France, with one eye on the psychedelic 70s and the other on a beautiful functional future. His glassing and color work are inspired by improvisational jazz... never really planning ahead on where it will go. Matt’s been collaborating, globally... both in the USA and France, as well as Brazil and Indonesia, with this underground liquid plastic wizard for more than a decade... Mervin’s proprietary eco sublimation system loves Tristan’s color and movement.

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.
