Bataleon have released what they claim is 'the surfiest ride on Earth' - The Surfer. Longtime B-boy and videographical wizard DBK just cut together this rad promo for it, full of muchos lusty close-up pow shots of this unique-looking snowboard in action, and we heartily recommend you check it out for a good dose of the powder froth...

This board, available in pretty limited numbers and is loaded with Bataleon's premium tech, has got one of the most insane shapes in snowboarding right now. The Surfer has a giant nose with intense 3BT and their new SideKick technology, plus even the ultra long, vampyric swallow fangs are 3D shaped to give you roosters and faceshots the likes of which you've never experienced.

And by boat, I mean one of those catamaran things that could get you across the Channel in about thirty minutes – with speed, and in style." We also took another one out last winter – alas there was precious little pow so our testing was solely on hardpack, but nevertheless The Surfer was still ultra fun to butter around and side hit on, not to mention it was excellent for a spot of charging and Eurocarving. But, yeah, get this baby in powder and you could tell you'd be guerning with joy like an early 90s raver.

If you're in the market for an ultra fun pow gun, or even just something for piste surfing, and have a few sheckels to rub together, few other boards this year will give you the grin – and the looks from fellow riders for that matter – that The Surfer will...
