Our soft snow concept shape The Tugboat is a total game changer when it comes to riding powder. The massive width of the nose gives you extreme float like you've never felt before.
An extremely strong taper and a tipping point on the base at the widest part of the board – along with the matching radius – makes it more agile, lively, and lets you react a lot faster than what you'd expect from a wide board like this. The deep swallow-tail provides a looser feel, more lift and a fast look to the shape. The Tugboat also features our brand new channel base that makes this short board more stable at higher speeds and gives it more grip in softer snow. By stripping our powder boards of conventional metal edges, you are offered a system that is focused more specifically on soft- and powder snow.
This makes the board lighter, faster and more stable. The classic sidecut allows the board to still carve well on groomed slopes. The only thing it dislikes is solid icy conditions. The P-TEX Edge can be retuned using a standard edge tuning file. In case powder is your first priority and you don't care much about riding on ice, this is a must-have for the good days and a perfect addition to your “regular” board.

Prepare for take-off with a board that makes waves for its abilities to carve and catch air. You'll find it under Terje and the other Burton pros on pow days, and there's still enough tail to ride it switch. Flight Attendant is a versatile directional platform for all-mountain shredding; it's a favourite amongst Zero G staffers.
The Deep Thinker is the Danny Davis inspired directional freestyle board with blunt nose, light swallow, nose rocker, camber out back and oodles of pop. That mix made it a clear shop favourite last year, and this year's 1990s aesthetics make it a sure stand out future classic. Get Deep!
People often put the Skeleton Key in the same pile as the Deep Thinker. It's not the same board at all - the Skeleton is more refined, more progressive, more carvy and smoother at mach 10 in the bumps. It's the freeride antithesis to the Deep Thinker's freestyle friendliness, and a favourite amongst Zero G staff as a result.
