They say: The Swindle gets the job done, plain and simple.
We say: Simply but strongly made, the Swindle boasts a slightly wider waist than most boards, making it more stable and giving it better float in powder. This board is really all about piste carving and taking your first steps in the park though.
Tester says: Easy flex and feels at home anywhere. Perfect for the progressing freestyler.

- History lesson: Nitro was kick-started in Seattle in 1990, emerging kicking and screaming slap bang in the middle of the Grunge explosion that would make the city famous. While Kurt Cobain and co screamed their disapproval with the status quo up on stage, Nitro channeled the same spirit onto their boards. To this day the brand is known for its dark graphics – often featuring skulls – and its love of Iron Maiden’s favourite font.
- Ridden by: Scandinavian black metal bands on their days off, skate-punks who throw the horns any time they think something’s even remotely cool, and long-haired dudes who wear chains.
