The Storm Chaser is a power packed swallowtail that offers magical float in pow and radical carving potential. Surfboard shaper Chris Christenson designed the rocker profile and base contours of the Storm Chaser by using the refined dimensions of his fastest gliding surfboards. The result is an explosively fast powder rocket that packs insane float into a nimble, short board. The ultra-wide waist width and Spoon 4.0 base contours help maximize the float of the short running length and the Surf Rocker profile pops the nose even further out of the snow when you rock into a bottom turn. New for 2019, we’ve lightened up the Storm Chaser’s Bamboo Surf Core and added Web Fused Carbon to the nose to help smooth out the ride in rough snow.
3D CONTOUR BASE 4.0 : Our most advanced 3D-base contour pattern featuring 7mm of spoon bevel in the nose, 4mm in the tail and a 1mm deep Speed Channel between the tail edges. Concave Speed Channel pushes loose snow out from under the board for added speed.
FIRST PROTOTYPE : The first template of the Storm Chaser was a thin piece of wood hand drawn and cut by Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones in Jeremy’s garage. They used Chris’ surf shaping tools to outline the shape and rocker profile. The hand written notes delineate subtle rocker contours and dimensions.
FROM SHAPING BAY TO MOUTAINS : Honored to continue a design partnership with renowned San Diego surfboard shaper Chris Christenson. Chris is one of the most diverse surf shapers in the world and makes everything from contest boards to longboards and record breaking big wave guns.
ECO-PERFORMANCE FOCUSED : We strive to build gear that balances performance and sustainability. We fight climate change as a proud member of 1% For The Planet and our factory partners maintain industry leading social standards for their workforce. To understand the true environmental footprint of our snowboards, we assess every material and energy demand that goes into production.
