The new Mountain Surfer is a next level powder board built to surf the earth without bindings. Surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones completely redesigned the Mountain Surfer using new materials plus 3D contours that draw from the same hydro dynamic principles Chris uses to design surf boards. The Mountain Surfer’s complex contours include a Spoon nose for float, a 3D center hull for improved glide and 3D stepped edges for turn precision. The Mountain Surfer has a sintered p-tex base and a wood core but no metal edges or binding inserts. To keep you attached after a closeout barrel, the Mountain Surfer includes a foam deck pad and leash.
FROM SURF TO SNOW
HAND SHAPED BY CHRIS CHRISTENSON
The new Mountain Surfer was hand shaped by Christenson using the same traditional techniques many surfboard molds are made with. Chris shaped the 3D bottom contours out of a foam surfboard blank, then laminated the foam with several layers of fiberglass. Once the fiberglass was dry, he ground out the foam, leaving behind the fiberglass in the exact shape he desired. The fiberglass board was then CNC scanned to produce a 3D digital file. Snowboard molds were then made with the digital file and the Mountain Surfer was pressed in those molds using traditional snowboard materials including a wood core, abs sidewalls and a sintered base.
