GARA SNOWBOARD SAFARI
The SAFARI is a new school snow surf board, it doesn’t really matter if there’s powder, groomed or corn snow - what really matters is to have that fun. This board is based on a low camber profile in order to be able to surf around with the additional control of the board. Deep powder and steep tree runs are the Safari’s natural habitat but ask yourself how many of these perfect runs in dream conditions we get throughout the season? It’s crucial to be quick in picking that cut back on the sides of the slopes, swift through the turn in the forest and regain the groomed slope by sending that 180 to switch slide - you know? This twin tip core allows you to convert this surf board into a skate tool every time you demand it. What’s important is to adapt your riding style to the actual conditions and get out there every time you have the chance to shred. The Safari is based on a small sidecut radius in order to be quick in the turns through the weekend warriors (even at low speeds) and to be able to cut those carving turns even on gentle hillsides. The waist width is generous allowing you to prove all the laws of physics with the freedom of movement - no need to worry about tip and toe cut offs on this board - those deep pow days will be glorious once again thanks to the Safari’s floatability gained by it’s surface area! Positioning the inserts along the centre of the board provide great balance on the grooms and thanks to the longer nose and short tail you still have enough back stance for deep pow runs, if you’re dreaming or better still heading out to ride on Hokkaido you still have the option to move your optimal stance even more rearwards. Talking about the construction we used an especially custom-made triaxial glass placed at an axial 45 degrees in order to get the additional torsional stiffness you’ll appreciate on the slope without influencing the overall stiffness that you enjoy in the deep pow. Give Safari a try - You won’t regret it, all of our boards can be more or less versatile but none of them can replace this unique snow surf skate toy!
