The Whitelines team is currently out at the Avant Premiere event - a board test in La Clusaz, France.
For the past few days we've been getting a sneak peak at all the new gear that snowboard brands will be putting on-sale in the 2014-15 season. We've been testing boards, talking tech and snapping photos.
Of course, we'll be filling you in with the details of all the new innovations (and sharing pictures of our favourite new graphics) in due course. We'll also be posting full length video and written reviews to help make your buying decisions ahead of the 2014-15 season.
But in the mean time, here's a cheeky sneak peak (taken from our Instagram Feed) at a few of the boards we've ridden and reviewed so far...
[part title="Salomon Gypsy & Ride Helix"]
The Ride Helix is a brand new model for 2014-15, with a crazy shaped nose and tail, and an asymmetric sidecut. Salomon's Gypsy is a classic, revamped and updated for next year.
[part title="DC PBJ"]
DC's PBJ has been around since the brand first launched boards back in the mid 2000s. The graphic on this year's model is designed to get you pumped up and ready to ride!
[part title="K2 Spot Lite"]
The K2 Spot Lite is a women's specific freestyle model. Anything capable of making a shredder smile like that has got to be good right?
[part title="Lib Tech Travis Rice"]
Lib Tech's Travis Rice pro model is consistently one of their best selling boards, year after year. The 2014-15 model is a powerful beast that looks set to continue that trend.
[part title="Ride Buck Wild"]
Ride's Buck Wild is the board that British slopestyle slayer Billy Morgan shreds on. The new Ride Buck Wild is a colourful beast, with a playful flex that's perfect for freestyle.
[part title="Burton Juice Wagon"]
The main reason we're out in La Clusaz is of course to test the new boards and tell you about them. Here Ed shares his thoughts on the new 2014-15 Burton Juice Wagon with the camera. Look out for our in-depth video reviews which will be dropping around the same time this gear starts appearing in shops.
[part title="Never Summer Infinity"]
The Never Summer Infinity (which Sales Exec Lauren is reviewing above) is a high end, women's specific all-rounder, designed to handle all sorts of terrain types and snow conditions. This model won't be in the shops until autumn, but according to Lauren, who tested it, it's definitely one to watch out for.
