April 23rd, 2021

Mountainwatch | Joe Stanco

Winter is just around the corner and if you are in the market for a new snowboard, our man Joey Stanco can direct you to the right board. In this review Joey continues his look at Nitro’s 2021 range, taking the Nitro Squash for a spin in Thredbo.

The Squash is an all-rounder, described by Nitro as offering, “the best of both worlds, unparalleled float in the powder with a turn so nice it will make you never want to leave the groomers.”

Joey rode the Squash in soft, spring conditions and reckons it is perfect for someone who is ready for a directional board – “A great carve board, a great pow board”. Check it out.
