Smokin Snowboards 2012-2013

17 Apr, 2012

Smokin Snowboards has been marching to their own beat for over 15 years. Their snowboards has been a labor of love with Smokin Jay at the realm and they continue to be committed to building quality handmade snowboards in the USA just outside of Lake Tahoe.

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.

Lets face it, most boards suck. They have been using the same molds for ten years. Different graphics on the same “custom” board. You can turn the heat off in your house using your cellphone now a days, so it’s time to climb out from under that rock and buy a board that flexes and turns, instead of one or the other. Welcome to the future of freestyle boards: freestyle means everything, not just park! Park Flex, Anti Rocker. Flex: 5.
