This fall  snowboard company POWFINDER  will release their first edition: The Morris 157 signature.  A high end, bamboo packed  snowsurfer. The engineers  behind POWFINDER  have been carefully developing handcrafted bamboo snowsurf prototypes for  six years now, before launching their ultimate Concept. Starting with a 157 cm bamboo swallowtail,  next years edition will be extended with two other models. A Big Boy 164 Powderboard, designed for the taller European Rider and a downsized girly/ youth Model, a versatile high speed carver. POWFINDER  offers a top notch alternative  for the expensive Japanese snowsurf Brands and  delivers at the same time a high end substitute for the cheaper European Brands.  The specifics of the Morris 157 Signature are beyond promising, yet versatile and affordable. The board has bamboo sidewalls, a bamboo based core and an aesthetically pleasing bamboo topsheet. Using only premium materials,  a superfast black electra 5920 base , extra inserts for a wider stance, a continuous steel edge-  even on the inside of rounded swallowtail – s could make  this ‘Bamboo Packed Powder Board’   the next level in European Snowsurf performance.  To celebrate their first edition POWFINDER are offering “Early birds”  a pre-order discount  on their boards. Because of its outstanding quality and performance we advice those shapes prior to the KORUA  serie.

You can get this premium snowboard with a massive Early Bird Discount at powfinder.com


Building a quiver or looking for your next new board?

 If you are planning to ride one board only and not build a quiver of different shapes, it makes sense to choose a model with fitting length and width before going into nose and tail shapes. The length and width will simply play a bigger role on whether you will be stoked on the board on a daily basis. For people who want to build a quiver we suggest to pick a board that’s as different as possible from what you already have. We might even have some high end Japanese  bamboo snowsurfers available!

If you still don’t know what shape will bet he best for you , just simply drop us a line we’ll try to help you with some recommendations which seems best.
Just provide us with some information on  size, weight and experience: Are you a beginner, advanced or  a total pro-rider?  What is your  Riding Style … Do you like blowing powder, cruising slopes? Or do you prefer to get as low as you go-Are you into carving   or do you simply kicking  park and rail? Do you want it to  be your next  everyday board or merely  an addition to your quiver? And which shape  seems at this moment  the most appealing ? Basic , plus serie or high end?
