The Emoticon takes the user-friendly performance of the Basic but in a tailored design that targets a woman's size and weight. Narrower, softer and a more forgiving blended sidecut has made this board a multi-time TWS Goodwood Award winner since its release seven years ago.

Passion is the most important guidance to me, that’s why, as a textile & graphic designer I want to keep sharing it into a lot of different projects. After designing clothes for a surf brand during the last decade, it’s pretty exciting to create graphics for snowboards
Full Poplar Core: YES's baseline core for tip to tail woodcore snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between tail durability, consistent flex and light weight.
Extruded Base: Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It is softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
Forever Flex: Forever Flex is a new manufacturing process that helps stabilize the flex and rocker profile of a board for it’s lifetime. Our boards now finish the first stages of production slightly overbuilt and then we “break them in” using specialized machinery that mimics extreme riding use. By flexing the fresh board fibers and epoxy at the factory the materials settle in to their final arrangement within the board layup much the same as if you rode the board for 20 days. This process helps us narrow our production tolerances so the board you buy has a more accurate specified flex and rocker profile that will change less.
Biax Fiberglass: A dual-direction, dual-layer, stitched fiberglass laminate providing a fun, forgiving, snappy ride.
UnderBite Outline: Better edge hold and easier turns. Redistributing rider weight and input power, UnderBite enhances turning ease and edge hold. By having the edge pulled in a couple of millimeters at the binding area acts like a gas pedal or a serrated knife, enhancing the cutting power of the edge. While you are turning on hard packed snow you need an insertion point to ease the edge. Then you need the edge to drive. We only have a couple inlays because once you’ve engaged your edge you are driving your turn. UnderBite allows you to have that extra leverage to apply power to the edge where you want to. From nose to tail you have a better edge control and a smoother drive.
Camber between your feet for precision and pop with rocker outside of your inserts for a catch free, float ready ride.
A completely symmetrical shape, which thrives in a variety of freestyle situations. At the core of its design, the twin shape features an identical nose and tail shape, which provides an identical feel and predictable maneuverability whether riding regular or switch. Although originally developed with park riders in mind, twin shapes have also grown to be embraced by many all-mountain riders that like to bring a skateboard style riding out of the park and onto the entire mountain.
