A good tradesman never blames his tools, but that saying doesn’t offer much condolence when you go boots-up after burying-nose right before that life-altering turn. This scenario is all too familiar for those who’ve ever tried to ride deep snow on inappropriate equipment.
Unlike your friend’s who’ve left you to dig your way out of that waist deep hole, we’re here to give you some insurance against this unfortunate experience ever happening again. What you see before you is a no-BS guide to the best boards we’ve ever ridden in Japan. If you’re going to bet on a horse, make it a good one, and these boards are bloody thoroughbreds when it comes to powering through Japanese pow. Go on, take a tip from us and watch this guide presented by Rhythm Snowboard shop or alternatively read on.

Find lines on the trail map or deep in the woods with this highly versatile and user-friendly appropriation of the fish surfboard. This Modified version takes the proven performance of Burton's regular Fish board and incorporates a more playful feel not too dissimilar to your favourite fish surfboard in your summer quiver. The loose and surfy feel is achieved thanks to a reduced sidecut and more centred (but still directional) stance, which makes this board a friendly alternative for anyone seeking soft turns.
