Shredaholics rejoice, the K2 Happy Hour Snowboard is here to surf pow, destroy jump lines, and rail silky-smooth carves with the best of 'em. This Transworld All-Mountain Good Wood winner takes a freestyle approach to dissecting the entire mountain, thanks to its Precision Lifted baseline, pointy twin shape, and pre-loaded Ollie Bar.
Using K2's Precision Lifted baseline, the Happy Hour gives you the best of both cambered and flat profiles without the catchy hook associated with most cambered boards. How does K2 manage to pull this off? Well, they start with flat contact points at the tip and tail for a neutral-feeling board when you're initiating turns. The board then cambers up just after the contact points, flattening through the center of its running length. This lifted flat profile gives you a board that rails into turns solidly and pops like a cambered deck, yet one that never feels overly aggressive or bites too hard, especially when you consider its medium, all-mountain flex.
Inside this true twin stick, you'll find a WH3 core that consists of full, tip-to-tail wood with two Honeykomb strips for lightweight performance. Embedded between the board's bindings is an Ollie Bar that helps you boost off jumps and pop off natural features, thanks to its cambered, pre-loaded lay-up of carbon, Kevlar, and glass. Adding extra snap and a more responsive feel, the board's Carbon Wing starts at the inserts, radiating to the tips for enhanced tip and tail control. As if that's not enough, this board also has K2's Hybritech construction that caps the tip and tail for reduced swing weight and enhanced turn initiation. It's finished off with a super-fast and durable 4000 Sintered base so you can charge all season long.

This is the 2011 good wood award winner. The good wood is an award given by transworld snowboarding for all mountain boards. No matter what terrain/conditions I know this board will perform consistently on the mountain. This is a flat top board which means it's going to give you even edging. The Sintered base bottom is super durable but does need waxing every so often. Also, K2 was able to make a very poppy board so you can take this into the park no problem.
