Even among the head-turning items in Korua’s quiver, the Stealth stands out. A little ironic given the name, but hardly surprising when you see its massive size and its Batman-cowl tail.
At a beefy 163cm length and 269mm waist width, this thing is built for stability. Even as the high quality sintered base takes you through the sound barrier, the wide nose and setback camber will keep you solid and comfortable even when things get choppy. If you want something cut out for redlining groomers from first lift to last, you could do a lot worse than having this under your feet.
Should you be lucky enough to have the Korua Stealth out on a powder day, the increased surface area of the rocker nose will mean that most of the work is already done for you.
It won’t be quite as reactive as pointier boards with pronounced swallowtails, and so isn’t the top choice for Japanese tree runs, but on an open face you’ll most likely lay down the biggest, best turns of your life.
An all-rounder this ain’t – it’s about as suited to the park as an ESF ski school snake – but get it where it belongs and you’ll understand what Korua is all about.
