NideckerMellow Snowboard - Men's

Bringing surf to snow.

As the surfiest shape in Nidecker's line, the Mellow Snowboard enjoys slashing windlips, nimbly darting through aspen glades, and laying out carves on corduroy. This surf-inspired board features a directional fishtail shape that floats effortlessly in pow and rails carves with precision. It's a bit wider than standard, so you can downsize by a few centimeters without sacrificing buoyancy in powder or stability at high speeds. The sidecut is shortened for quick directional changes, making this your go-to board for ripping fresh pow in the trees and racing your friends down the mountain's natural gullies and banked snake runs.

As you'd expect from a board of this pedigree, it performs exceptionally well on those deep days where the fresh pow is measured in feet, but it's also a surprisingly good carver when it hasn't snowed in weeks. We'd credit this to its responsive camber underfoot, paired with a significant set-back and shortened fishtail for driving turns off the back foot. The prominent nose rises early with a substantial dose of rocker, so you can weightlessly skim across powder without the front end submerging. Also, the nose is a bit wider than the tapered tail (approximately 6mm of taper), so it naturally stays above the snow with its extra surface area.
