1. A Snowboard With Soul


    from Don Watkins Added 2,195 10 4

    Recently I had the pleasure of building a Custom 160 Swallowtail Snowboard with board builder Mikey Franco of Franco Snowshapes. Based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Franco Snowshapes builds snowboards that represent their riders. Mikey's 30+ years in the snowboard industry put his skills and knowledge second to none. He knows what shapes ride well because he probably helped design it, and he knows how to analyze your riding style because he helped set the standard for teaching snowboarding across the globe over the last 20 years with AASI. Each board that comes out of his shop is unique. From tip to tail and back around to the topsheet, it's a board that's built for you. In this case it was also a board built by me, providing an even deeper personal connection. In addition, we also used Lodge Pole Pine deadfall from Teton Pass for the topsheet, which is one of my most coveted locations to ride in the Teton Valley. If you live near or plan on visiting the Jackson, Wyoming area, I highly recommend dropping by The Factory on Gregory Lane (1255 Gregory Lane, Jackson, WY 83001 (307) 734-8788). It's a shop unlike any other where passion for the sport yields the production of some amazing artisanal, revolutionary products. The Factory is also home to world-famous Igneous Skis (www.igneousskis.com) and Teton Artist Mike Tierney. Just make sure you bring a six-pack of PBR and be prepared to talk snwoboards and skis for the next couple hours.

      • 2013 Dupraz D1+ Video Review


        from Snowboard-Review Added 752 2 0

        The Dupraz D1 is awesome! Just looking at the D1 is enough to inspire dreams of chin deep pow days and epic freerider terrain. Built with a large taper, a short stubby tail and an enormous pointy surfboard style nose the D1 is designed to keep riders afloat and accelerating even in the deepest of fresh dumps. But get it on the groomers and the D1 rips through carves and holds a great edge. Providing you don't want to ride switch much and you're of the firm belief that hand-rails are there to help you down icy steps the D1 is worth a punt. Rich from Snowboard-Review.com puts on way too much suncream, takes the D1+ for a blast around Kaunertal Glacier and shares his opnion.

              from Lib Tech Added 3,136 1 0

              This board is like cheating but nobody loses… nothing floats better in powder. The all terrain shape will get you through any nasty chute on the way to your pow line, rip the hardpack in both directions and the lightweight Volcanic Organic HP construction keeps you light and lively no matter how deep and heavy it gets. Inspired by Utah powder freak Dennis Nazari, this thing makes new snow all over the world laughably easy and ridiculously fun to ride.
