The Alpensurf is a bindingless specific board , bringing the surf to the mtns. The bindingless movement was launched by Greg Todds around 1999-2000… this board is dedicated to Greg, designed by myself and Trapper Snowboards. I started riding bindingless in 2004 and was hooked for life. I still ride bindings a bit but this is the way to ride pow!!.
The Alpensurf is a short fat 148 or 155(big dudes) powder destroyer. The 148 has as much surface area as a regular 163 snowboard so lots of float here. The core (douglas fir) is handmade in house, grown in revy and layed up with oak sidewalls, the best base material possible, metal edges for durability, and a clear topsheet so the beauty of the Revelstoke Fir is visible. The nose is unsinkable and the tail helps with responsive quick turning ability, with built in tip and tail protectors for the occasional impact….this board is dialed for the bindingless experience. Hope more people get out and try this fun way of enjoying a powder day, it really is a soulful way of enjoying the deep snow.
Noboarding, Powsurfing, Snowsurfing.. etc.. its just a new challenge to snowboarding and it adds an element of skate/surf snowboarding just doesnt offer. On a deep day its the way to go down the hill.
Have a deep and very safe winter, hope to see you out for some powsurf turns this season! cheers – Al Clark
