Yes 420 Snowboard
This board is all about surface area displacement to create float and stability in a package that has much less swing-weight due to its dramatically shortened length. A tight turning radius facilitates tree-bound powder hunts and a custom crafted rocker line keeps the nose up at any speed. Often copied, but never duplicated, there’s only one 420.
