Smile New generation snowboard

Hi!

I went to france this winter to do some snowboarding, and I saw a new type of snowboard that I had never seen before. Both the nose and the bottom of the snowboard had pointed sides. I asked the manager what kind of snowboard it was, and he told me it was for going off-pist.

I was thinking about introducing this a little more to the swedish/european market (I am from Sweden myself). That's why I'm writing here, because there is no better place to ask people about snowboards than in a snowboard community.

Here is a sketch I made of the snowboard:



Has anyone here ever seen this kind of snowboard before, or perhaps even used it? Is it any good?

Do you believe there is a market for introducing it more here in Europe? Do you think people would buy it?

Do you think this would work well as a board for off-pist?

Thank you

I take it you mean the nose and the tail not the actual base of the board. Swallow Tails have had pointed noses since the worm turned. My Neversummer Summit has a semi pointed nose, more like a missile. No real advantages to the pointed nose and tail and the board is more susceptible to damage. Nothing really ground breaking about that shape what so ever. I also doubt it would go anywhere as you are using camber and rocker is all the rage these days.
