When we first started giving awards in this category, the ‘shape revolution’ was still a relatively new thing. Now, however, it’s clear that this is less of a passing trend, and more the new normal.
“Needless to say, these will all turn heads this winter”
Naturally most unusual shapes are aimed at the freeride market – there are a lot of big, wide, convex noses and short, stubby swallowtails. It makes a lot of sense; unless you’re all about chucking shapes in the powder, you might as well opt for a board that floats impeccably and requires less effort to ride.
Not all of these are exclusively for the deep stuff, however. Some have been designed to offer the best carving experience going, and there’s even a bona fide park board in here that is offering a fresh take.
Needless to say, these will all turn heads this winter – so take a look and see if any of them catch your eye.
