No matter your skill set the Flying V is a board that will fit any rider’s needs. Mainly known for its versatility, the board can handle any terrain with ease. Twin flex is what balances this board for any type of rider, allowing them to feel equally comfortable riding switch or regular.

Having rocker throughout the tip and tail of the board while having camber centered beneath your feet allows this board to respond quickly to turns, and will feel playful during all conditions. With the core of the board being constructed with lightweight timber, you will not get the knee ache that other boards can give you while sitting on the chairlift.

Although this board is not geared for beginners, it is a great board for someone looking to advance their freeriding skills and link fast turns on and off the groomers. If you are looking to be riding deep powder every chance you can get, we recommend going with a more traditional directional board with a larger nose.
