Powderjet Snowboards is a fledgling all-wooden powder board manufacturer. Right now it is a one-man operation; the boards are pressed and handcrafted in Ripton, VT. It is a low-VOC board manufactured from local hardwoods. When the Powderjet board comes out it will hopefully be the most environmentally-friendly board on the market.
The board may look retro but it is designed to hold its own with the best of the best. It features a deep sidecut, set-back stance, and a V-notched swallow tail. When you ride this board you will feel like you are surfing.
Anyway, fill out this survey at PowderJet Survey :: and you will be entered into a raffle for a new, hot off the presses Powderjet. We will pick the winner in the next week or two. The only rule is you can only take the survey once.
Also check out the pics on our website, PowderJet, and we would love to hear your feedback on this thread. If you want to be notified when the board is released please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, if you are in Canada you are also eligible to receive the board. if you happen to be outside of Canada and the U.S. we just ask that you pay shipping.
Ahh right on thanks I wasn't sure, when I did the survey it asked where I boarded, I used the other field. I actually have access to a USA address anyways, living right near the border comes in very handy some times. They definitely looks nice. Snow conditions this year where I am haven't been great, but maybe I will see some powder next year.
what do you mean by a wood snowboard. Is that the core you see through the top or a veneer? If it is the core it looks like one solid piece of wood? How is it really different from normal snowboard construction. What makes it eco? Lots of companies use low or no voc epoxies, there was a video up for a while of a guy at signal eating their resin.
I like the convex tail, but i've been thinking a convex nose to a concave tail would be ticket.
