They say: The Ally takes Kjersti Buaas from US Open to the Olympic halfpipe.
We say: With its banana profile and ‘Magne-traction’ wavy edges, the Ally is built for charging any kind of terrain – whether it’s slushy park, icy pipe or soft pow. It’s a bit stiff for beginners perhaps, but will suit most people fine.
Tester says: Softer nose and tail so good to jib but holds a lot of ollie power still.

- History lesson: Roxy has only been building boards for a few years, but has already made a considerable splash. The orignial women’s surf brand, it was founded as an offshoot of Quiksilver in 1990. It had already been producing technical outerwear for a few seasons when its parent company bought Mike Olson’s Mervin factory near Seattle. With access to the facilities where legendary snowboard lines Gnu and Lib Tech were built, Roxy decided to seize the opportunity to launch its own series of boards in 2003 – the first all-girls line ever built.
- Ridden by: Well girls, obviously. But generally a particular kind of girl as well – the kind who can shred with the best of them but still takes care to match her lipstick with her gloves.
