Monument Snowboards 2010-2011

07 May, 2010


Monument was started in 2001 and is driven by art which is apparent in their boards each season.  By working with a roster of established and emerging artists to infuse art into snowboarding, Monument brings inspired high quality products for snowboarder.  For 10-11 Monument works with artist Daniel Jackson to commemorate their limited artist series, Daniel was the first artist to contribute in the series and now returns to the project.

Monument continues their earth science project (ESP) materials that use clean and renewable resources like bamboo in the core and sidewalls (Terra walls).  Their ESP cores that range from poplar, bamboo and x-w00d depending on the type of core for each model.  The muffle walls help reduce teeth chattering vibrations in icy conditions and high speeds down the mountain.  New for 10-11, all Monument models come in reverse camber for the 155cm board model.

    I have ridden a monument for the last two seasons. It is by far the best board I have ridden. Their graphics are sick, the boards are super light-weight and they hold up well. After riding several forums, a K2 and an atomic, I am sold on MNMNT!
