Smokin Snowboards 2011-2012

18 Apr, 2011


Over the past 15 years, Smokin has evolved and adapted as a snowboard company.  With beginnings in a basement factory in North Lake Tahoe to the current state of growing into a 5,000 square foot factory in Sparks, Nevada.  The company is a full labor of love movement with Smokin Jay at the realm of it all.  Smokin continues to be committed to building only the best quality  handmade snowboards in the USA, using only top shelf materials and cutting edge technology.

For technology, Smokin continues to offer a variety of cambers/rockers to choose from:  DIRT rocker (flat binding to binding, rocker binding to tips), Anti-Rocker (completely flat throughout the entire effective edge), Clash Rocker (positive camber outside the bindings, rockered between the bindings) and Traditional Camber (positive camber throughout entire effective edge).  Every Smokin snowboard also utilizes Magne traction (MTX) with 7 points of contact along each edge for unmatched edgehold.  New for 2011/2012, Smokin technology introduces skate kick design which employs a radial contact point rise into a flat tip shape for a buttery floaty feel in the nose and tail.

    Hearts in the right place but quality must not be a priority. mine blew up within the first month and my wife’s doesn’t look good. lots of imperfections on hers weird gaps between edge and base bubbles on top sheet. Our friend had a Smokin Buds and blew it up in one loggin’ session…lame…bummed!
