THE GHOST

A MODERN  CAMBER MARVEL.

The Ghost is a mid-wide, true ‘modern’ camber board with a mouthful of outline tech gracing its spec sheet. Directional Volume Twin outline helps the true twin float better than a twin should and the MidBite allows a wider platform underfoot while maintaining a responsive waist width and confident edge hold.

DIRECTIONAL VOLUME TWIN + MidBite

OUTLINE

DIRECTIONAL VOLUME TWIN

As the lines between free-ride and freestyle continue to erase, we had to address the needs of guys committed to riding only twins but finding themselves in more pow. Nose and tail volume is hard to notice in hard-pack unless you’re nose/tail pressing, but in pow it affects floatation and you can feel it. This led to the simple idea of the Directional Volume Twin. Symmetrical flex, centered stance, identical wide-points of the board (therefore, NOT tapered), identical length shovel lengths but with a slightly lower volume tail.

MID-BITE

The MidBite steps the outline of the board inward 1.5mm just inside the insert pack. This step remains (rather than bumping back out like the Basic) down about 1/3 the length of the sidecut until just inside the next insert pack. This single long disruption of the sidecut between the bindings cheats the waist width narrower, providing quicker edge-to- edge response. Meanwhile, from your binding out to the end of the sidecut we maintain a board width that is a stable platform for popping, spinning, and landing.

POPLAR + BAMBOO

CORE

POPLAR/PAULOWNIA/BAMBOO

Creating a lighter, more responsive core than the Full Poplar. The Poplar + Bamboo uses the same durable core, lightens it up by replacing 30% of the Poplar with Paulownia and then inserts two bamboo stringers down the full length for added pop and response.

BASE MATERIALS

SINTERED TRUE

Just like it says. Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. There are several suppliers for our entire industry and they each have different codes for them, depending on the color and transparency. These codes can make it seem like you’re getting many different kinds and grades of sintered but they’re all pretty much the same as far as you and I will ever tell. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions.

GHOST

MODERN CAMBER DESIGN.

This years Ghost has been fully redesigned and refined! We evolved the directional volume twin made famous on this model and incorporated the award winning Mid-Bite outline. The Ghost now boasts a wider platform underfoot, maintains a responsive waist width and will always come with “modern camber”.

TDF

This year’s Tadashi continues with the Directional Volume Twin shape that works so well for those committed to riding twins, but wanting better floatation in powder. With a lower volume tail shape than nose, this board planes like a directional but spins like a twin. The modern Camber base profile takes what we’ve learned with rocker, and applies the traditional pop and response you want without any of the grabbiness that people associate with their camber experience from the 90’s. Under the hood lies a new lightweight Poplar core with 2 Bamboo stringers running tip-to-tail providing a seamless balance of snap and dampening.
