Why Different Board Widths?

Just as in boats, fly rods, skis and snowboards “there’s no one board design to do it all”, which is why we have expanded this years Surfer line from Sherman Poppen’s original narrow deck Classic design to our substantially wider Powder Hound Series.

Each Snurfer is specifically designed to meet the “Fun Factor” needs associated with various riding styles and snow conditions. So in an effort to stay true to our mantra of “Less Tech, More Fun”, I believe the easiest way to explain the basic design differences of each boards is as follows: The deeper and lighter the snow, the wider the board, while conversely, the shallower and harder the snow, the narrower the board. A narrower board allows the rider to more easily find and maintain center on harder snow while a wider boards allow for greater floatation and turning when in fresh pow.

So if your primary objective is back yard fun for the entire family then the Scout and Nomad answers the call while if powder covered steeps is where you envision the majority of your days, then either the Rambler or the Drifter is your call to action.
