demo boards for the aussie pow
There is over 1 metre in the forecast for the NSW resorts over the nextweek. It is the perfect Spring! But riding powder is a totally differentboard game (no pun intended). Powder boards tend to have a few featuresto look out for:
Tapered boards tend to be wider in the nose helping you stay up and stable in powder, then taper down to the tail.

Korua boards are new to us this year but they have taken off. The TrannyFinder features a big scoop nose and set back bindings to float. If youtake this board out head off piste a little and just play.

Prior boards are hand crafted in Whistler so you know these boards arequality. The Prior Slasher board is a stiff freeride board with aswallow tail, longer pow nose and short radius meaning the board willslay all terrain from top to bottom. The Slasher will also hold a hardedge on harder snow.
