They say: LNP’s skate for the snow.
We say: With design input from Laurent Nicolas-Pacquin himself, this was always going to be a playful, jib-focussed stick. It’s got pretty much the softest flex in this guide, so it’s not the best on edge hold, but rail boards don’t get much better than this.
Tester says: Makes buttering super easy, great for jibbing all over the show.

- History lesson: Formed by two former Burton employees in 2001, Rome’s stated goal was the “corrosion of the corporate…by any means necessary”. Josh Reid and Paul Maravetz started the company after long stints in the industry, deciding that the business of building boards had stagnated and become too focussed on corporate bullshit. Rome offered to “bust out a king-sized syringe, depress the plunger and corrupt the system”. They’ve managed to keep their anti-corporate rep despite now being one of the biggest, most successful board brands in the world.
- Ridden by: Grungy young guns who duct tape the holes in their jackets cos they prefer it that way. And everyone in Scotland.
