A CLOSER LOOK AT MOSS SNOWSTICKS:
A term commonly used by MOSS “less is more” features heavily in their design philosophy and to them feeling part of the mountain or the terrain you are riding is a far greater feeling than being able to nail the biggest jump, or jib the longest or largest rail in the park.
Simply put, MOSS Snowsticks are surfboards…for the snow. They are designed to flow with the harmony of the mountain. Long smooth noses, deep swooping side cut profiles and progressive tail designs to give you specific release like the numerous tails we see in surfboard design is what snowsurfing is all about.
MOSS snowboards are best ridden 10-20 cms shorter than your average snowboard. The idea is to set your bindings as far back on the board as possible so you get the same feeling you would be riding a surfboard in your most favorable stance be it regular or goofy. The longer nose and side cut profiles allow the rider to smoothly transition between turns and allow you to ride deep snow with your balance centered giving you back foot freedom to make a maneuver as effortlessly as possible.
Besides the design influence of surfing the whole mountain and its terrain was experienced as a flowing, wave riding experience. This natural, free and deeply personal approach worked so well that snowsurfers regularly refine their shapes just like we do with a surfboard.
Some examples of the types of boards you will be riding on the tour can be seen below.
