Mountainwatch | Joe Stanco
Last season our snowboard guru Joey Stanco checked out the Nitro’s 2021 range, riding Thredbo in variety of conditions on a variety of boards. In this review Joey checks out the Wood Carver, a board Nitro describes as the snowboard for people who “want to be able to enjoy turns more, without sacrificing the ability to slash and float through pow…”
For Joey the Wood Carver is one of his favourites in the Nitro fleet and he rates it at 10/10.
“It’s a really fun board to ride, nice and snappy, nice and responsive … It’s for someone who wants a directional board, a board that carves really well. ” Joey said. “And is versatile -it’s also great in powder and slush.”
Known to some as “Snow Guru Joe”, Joe Stanco has a passion for snow, snowboarding and everything that goes with it. Joey is an expert boot fitter, amateur snowboarder and product tester with “a passion for helping others find the right gear.”
He founded Joey’s Myoko in Myoko Kogen, Japan, a service/demo centre and retail store for locals and travellers and during the Australian season he does his thing out of the ESS store Jindy.
When he’s not fitting boots and giving expert advice to customers Joey is on the mountain doing a bit of “R&D” on the latest snowboards. Whether you are into pow, park or shredding the groomed, Joey can recommend the right board for you. Hit it up on his Facebook link below if you have any questions or are looking for advice.
