I’ve been on one of Endeavors boards and liked what I rode, fun board that could handle Whistler. I can’t wait to try more of their creations and judge them by how they ride.
For 2009-2010, Endeavor is introducing 4 reverse camber models. These boards are reverse camber in only one size of each model. These boards are the 148cm Boyfriend RC (women’s board), 151cm Colour RC (jibbing board), 156cm Live RC (all-around riding), and 159 Next RC (powder freeriding).
Endeavor’s reverse camber will begin at the center of the snowboard, the rocker is from the center extends to the bindings and then is straight from the bindings to the nose and tail.
Endeavor Next Series and Roots Series
The Next Series returns to the line with artist Derek Hess. The graphic is inspired by his piece “Hemorrhage” an open wound that wont heal. It’s a bloody mess but beautiful up close.
The Roots Series features artist Rory Doyle bringing the classical look to the roots earthy designs.
Endeavor Live Series
Marok is back for the live, designing it his 4th time. The look is futuristic and a stripped down base.
L-R: Endeavor Colour Series, Guerrilla Series, Live Series
The Guerilla Series features artist Tim Barnard who uses black and white cartoon collages inspired by the “5 Horseman.”
Endeavor Colour 157cm
The Endeavor Colour for 2009-2010 is a throwback to the 1970’s Olympic icons and posters. Without making a cheesy board dedicated to the Whistler Olympics coming up in 2010, they went back to the past with geometrical shapes and colours that stand out. The artist is Nathan Matthews.

Endeavor Boyfriend Series
The boyfriend is new for 09-10 giving a freestyle board to the women supporting Endeavor. The artwork on the graphics is by Nathalee Paolinelli who art is around abstract shapes. Endeavor rider, Gillian was on hand at SIA to talk about the board, she’s been riding it in Whistler and has been happy with it in the park.
Close up look at the Diamond Graphics
It’s the only board I took a close up image of the graphis because of the artistry behind them. It’s a beautiful design with simple artsy watercolors that pop out. The artist behind the Diamond is Derek Stenning.
Endeavor Diamond Series
Endeavor High 5 Series
Definitely the most stand out board for me in looks, with the space skull look it’s beautiful up close but the graphics are made after destruction by artist Jeff Hamada.
Endeavor Board of Directors (BOD)
Artist Joshua Smith features “a legacy lasts far after the reign” wording on the graphics.
Thanks to Max Jenke for showing the line!
