Nativ Snowboards 2011-2012

15 May, 2011

Nativ was founded in 2006 with the goal to bring the feel and style of surfing back to the snow with a board for back footed style of riding.  The snowboards are made in the US with a set back stance and a smaller sized board for increased maneuverability, directional change and responsiveness.

Nativ comes in three models:  Standard, S-Camber and Surf-Trac.  Standard is the most versatile board designed for all types of conditions for the everyday rider.  S-Camber is new for the 11-12 season and designed with powder in mind, looser than the standard model and lights up in all powder conditions.  The Surf-Trac is new for 11-12 and designed to increase the surf style, back-footed feel in a variety of snow conditions.  It has another contact point in the tail to hold through any turn you give it.
