Salomon Snowboards Craft Snowboard
Whether you are sending a huge backcountry booter or linking lines in the park, you can rely on the Salomon Craft Snowboard to help you stomp tricks no matter what the conditions are like. It sports a poppy yet pressable flex to handle everything from jumps to jibs, and it's responsive enough to take around the rest of the mountain when you want to go for a cruise.
The secret to its all-terrain success starts with the Rock Out Camber profile, which is flat between the bindings for high-speed stability and stomped landings. Camber near the inserts add response and edge hold and rocker at the tips increase forgiveness and float. Popster core profiling maximizes the natural snap of wood, making your ollies feel extra poppy without making the board feel stiff.
A slight bevel on the edges prevents hangups when you're sliding sideways on rails, and Royal Rubber sidewall pads soak up impacts when you overshoot a jump. The EQ Rad sidecut lends an agile and smooth turning feel for weaving nimbly through trees and getting loose in the park. An upgrade over typical extruded bases, the sintered base provides added speed when you're bombing into the biggest jumps in the park, but it's still easy to repair after you thrash it in the streets.

- Q & A
I bought this to use as my instructor board for the season and I have zero complaints. I absolutely love this board, it has a few features that make riding smooth. I was looking at a few boards but ultimately settled on this one because of the specific profile. The flat center is great for doing park riding and the camber/rocker ends make it float well through the powder. The flexibility in the board is a little stiff, however, I still have great stability making wide or sharp turns and I am still able to butter through the snow. The board is very light weight and the true twin tips makes for very easy switch riding.
I was also able to fit a wide variety of bindings which means all types welcome.
As an all mountain board I give it a 5/5, it is great as both a beginner board as well as an advanced board . It has great stability and balance which is great for beginners and is able to ride through rough terrain and do higher level technical riding. This board is definitely unbeatable, especially for the price, Coming from an instructors point of view I highly recommend this board for all levels of riding.
