Pocket-sized pow rocket.
Slash deep powder, bank turns between tight trees, and slalom through twisty snake runs with the super-agile feel and incredible float of the Salomon Derby Snowboard. Featuring Salomon's Rocket Science Shaping, the Derby is much wider than its length would suggest, lending incredible float and stability to a substantially shorter board. Further increasing its floaty-fun feel, the Derby's tapered directional shape naturally sinks the rear, keeping the nose up and planing across bottomless pow. Additionally, the Flat Out Rocker adds rocker to the tip and tail for even more float, regardless of whether you're riding in the woods of Vermont or open bowls of Colorado.
Reinforcing this pint-sized pow board, the Aspen Strong core features high-density wood strips along the binding inserts and rails for high levels of impact resistance. Royal Rubber pads placed into high-pressure zones of the sidewalls dampen high-speed vibration and chatter. Its quadratic sidecut lends effortless edge-to-edge response when you're carving groomers and arcing turns across hardpack. Additionally, the sintered base keeps the Derby gliding smoothly across deep snow without bogging down.

The Salomon Derby is by far my favorite "stubby" powder board. Heavily influenced by riding powder in Japan (or Ja-Pow if you will), these short, wide powder boards are a hell of a lot of fun to snap short turns in the trees or if you're the type of person that just can't get enough of the white room. The directional setback makes you barely have to lean back when you find an open pow field as if the rocker tip & tail wasn't helpful enough. The twin shape is especially helpful for when you start buttering and spinning off cliffs and land in switch. For a powder board under $400, the Salomon Derby can't be beat.
Let me know if you need help sizing these up for you, as the short and wide size can make sizing a bit tricky.
