Endeavor describe the Boyfriend as a “no nonsense, take no prisoners park dominator”. Take a look at the spec, and it’s easy to see what they mean. It’s a true twin for starters, which makes riding switch easy, and its combo profile is tailored to offer a perfect combination of the poppiness of camber with the catch-free feel of rocker. There’s camber between the bindings, while the contact points near the tip and tail are lifted, making them snag on rails. The poplar wood core is made softer than normal so that women, who are generally lighter, will find it easy to butter and press. Carbon stringers down the length of the board adding a bit of extra power, but this is still designed more for jibbing than charging around the pistes.

That said, if you do choose to go fast, there is rubber in the sidewalls which helps cushion you from lumps in the piste and reduce chatter at speed. One of our testers remarked on how responsive the board felt when carving, an unusual comment for such a soft board. The base of the board is extruded, so it’s not super-tech or super-fast, but then you don’t really need that for a board designed primarily for freestyle. And make no mistake, although intermediate piste cruisers will probably love the soft flex and easy feel, it’s the park where this board is most at home.

If nothing else that badass bird-flipping graphic, designed by Mexican artist El Grand Chamaco, should tell you that the kind of woman who rides this stick is not the kind you wanna mess with.
