The SHAKA gives an amazing ride on any backcountry terrain, from the tightest trees to the steepest faces, making powder riding less effort and more enjoyable. The VERYLIGHT CORE is enhanced with Paulowina wood to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength. POW TBT features the widest and highest TBT wings on the nose with intense upturn angles, it practically impossible to submarine! A stubby tail with gentler TBT angles and a set back stance puts more weight automatically over your back foot, giving better float and endowing your turns with huge powder clouds. The setback stance and crazy TBT shape allows you to ride the POW SHAKA much shorter and softer than you would ride any other powder board. We included V-shaped carbon strips in the nose and tail sections. On the tail these magnify the ‘gas pedal’ effect and enhance pop, while on the nose they distribute forces more evenly and stop the board from becoming twitchy at high speeds. The SHAKA also includes a 2 cm wide strip of bamboo down the very centre of the board so you can split it! When you split the board along this strip, the near perfect alignment of bamboo fibers along the length of the board ensures that the newly revealed sidewalls remains impervious to water without needing further treatment! The POW SHAKA lets you ride bottomless powder all day with minimal back leg burn and turns on a sixpence during tree runs! Enjoy your best ever powder day on a SHAKA.
