This is Smokin’ Snowboards’ 20th season, and the second for this asym freestyle stick. The profile has been changed for 2015, and is now what they call ‘Thrash Rocker’ – essentially camber with a large flat section between the bindings for stability. That makes it ideal for charging (indeed, thrashing) around on, so don’t be afraid to open this up in the park or elsewhere.
Smokin’ shuns carbon in favour of hemp, fibres of which reinforce the tip and tail for added dampening as well as strength. The flex is suitable for all-round riding, but you’ll get best results with this in the park. There’s also a women’s version called the Fawesymmetrical.
