The SAFARI is a surf orientated-splitboard without compromise. It’s overall softer tuning guarantees a super “fish” feeling of movement both in open terrain or in the woods. The generous nose guarantees float in all types and depths of powder, in fact it was from inspiration’s gained in Japan that influenced the development of this board. Don’t be confused by the length of this board, the Safari’s waist width is 268mm, plenty of buoyancy even for Hakkaido’s silky powder conditions. This board is designed with a pin tail that will “hold you in the saddle” through the quick fish turns even with a fully loaded back pack. The core has been designed with a unique surf shape giving optimal flex and torsion in relation to it’s extended nose whilst the tail is slightly softer for better pop and to ensure that Safari accelerates through the turns. Low camber under the front foot helps with the control of the board and greatly improves the ease-of-use when skinning. Yes, you’re right, Safari is not the board for every day riding but it’s surely the ultimate board for those long awaited season epics.
