Homewood Snowboards

Hey guys Leo & I got our hands on a few Homewood snowboards earlier this winter to review. I know it's tough to find reviews/info on smaller companies so that's why we're trying to reach out to them to spread the word about what they're doing and get that info out there for those of you who are interested in buying locally made boards.

Quick Q&A about the brand who they are and why they're doing what they're doing:

And here's links to our reviews of two of their boards this year.

Industry 152cm hybrid camber

This one's a center reverse with some camber underfoot camber engaged when you wanted it to but didnít ďbiteĒ when you werenít expecting it. Handled OK under the heavier snow or where the trails had gotten moguled out but did not excel. Softer torsionally so it wasnít super snappy edge-to-edge for the real technical short-radius carves, but I donít think thatís what this board was designed for anyways. At higher speeds it definitely felt livelier under foot medium radius turns at moderate speeds felt most comfortable. Switch stance, no surprises itís a true twin and handles consistently either way you point it.

Mix Tape 156cm reverse camber

The Mix Tape caught me off guard in terms of speed. I rode it on surprisingly good conditions. Almost, almost spring like conditions. Just the right amount of sun hitting the man-made. Snow was fast and this boardís base was fast. This board was plenty poppy for me. The day that I rode it on, there were surprisingly lots of rollers to ollie off of. I had a good amount of fun with this.
