    Model A Snowboard

    From kissing the corduroy on high-speeds groomers to effortlessly slashing up fans of powder on deep days, the SnoPlanks Model A Snowboard thrives in the steepest and deepest terrain. Soft camber, a tapered sidecut, and two-inch setback stance give you the tools to truly surf the earth with minimal work on powder days, while the stiff flex and directional shape help you turn the variable conditions on chopped-up days into gold. Essentially, SnoPlanks has created a veritable all-mountain board, destroying everything from hard-pack resort days to floating through pow stashes in the trees.

    Handmade in Oregon, the Model A starts with a blend of soft camber and mellow rocker to give you both the hard-charging explosiveness to handle gnarly, technical terrain, but with the forgiving float to keep you surfing through thigh-deep powder. A turbo-charged bamboo and carbon fiber core keeps your ollie power maxed out while ensuring stability at high speeds, with a triax laminate bolstering durability and keeping the flex ultra-responsive. If you're looking for a board that rides like an absolute dream in any condition and puts a smile on your face at the end of the day, look no further than the Model A.

    • Possibly the truest all-terrain board you'll ever ride
    • Soft camber surfs through pow and charges with stability
    • Directional tapered shape with slight setback floats over pow
    • Poppy core offers explosive response and power
    • Triax laminates enhances overall durability
    • Sintered base maintains high speeds over slow conditions
    • Item #SNV0002

    This Thing RULES

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been looking for a board exactly like this for longer than I care to admit.

    After 15 years or so of riding exclusively mid-stiff twin freestyle boards, I went down the throwback shape directional board rabbit hole like everyone else. Owned a few, tried a bunch more. Liked the float, and a directional board makes sense for my riding, but the pow-specific directional shapes have some real drawbacks as daily drivers, and I REALLY don't get along with the soft foldey nose/stiff tail flex profile that you get with traditional freeride boards. I've been looking for something that floats like a pow board, rails hardpack turns like a traditional freeride shape, and has the predictable, supportive flex (especially in the nose) that you get from a hard charging twin. The Model A checks those boxes for me in a big way. Yeah, it's expensive. But I'd rather pay the price for something that's this close to perfect then save a few bucks and be disappointed yet again.

    It's hard to tell online, but there's some VERY intelligent shaping and construction going on with this board. The bamboo/carbon fiber chassis does an amazing job deadening chatter, sort of like a Never Summer Proto Type II, but unlike any of the other heavily damped boards I've ridden, the thing has POP. Then there's the shape, which has a bunch of easily overlooked but very important elements that make it obvious that the folks at Snoplanks were focused on getting it right, and backed it up with a LOT of on snow testing. I'm only a few days in at this point, but I can say with zero hesitation that this is WAY better than the next best board I've ridden.

    6' tall, about 165 lbs. Loving the 158, and now wanting the 162 as well.

    Best All Terrain Board on the Market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a hard time riding anything else. This board devours corduroy, blasts through the chop, and floats in pow. I've provided a years worth of proof below, enjoy!

    All around ripper

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Pure and simple this board slays the whole mountain. I don't have a huge quiver so having a board that can handle everything thrown at it is key. It has huge pop, rips groomers, and floats like crazy in powder. The bamboo topsheet is a beauty too. People are always commenting on how cool it looks while in line. You should own this board.

    too much good.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This board drops the hammer on anything and everything, no hesitation. It's obvious the board totally rips when surfing pow and floats like a dream, but less obvious is how well it handles variable conditions; better than any other board I've strapped into. It's the perfect ride for early season crud and making the most of those post-storm days when your favorite runs start to get tracked out. The bamboo seems to just slam into whatever's in its path and take it with ease, turning even the most dreaded chop into smooth, bouncy fun. On trail it carves corduroy with the best of em. I'm an ex-racer and this is now my GO TO board for laying trenches. Late season the board turns into a true slush slasher and gave me some of the best spring riding I've ever had. There's a reason this board gets called an all-mountain quiver killer. It does it all and does it better than any of the boards now collecting dust in my garage. You won't want to ride anything else.

    The ideal dream-tool for one-plankers who want to slide sideways down mountains on a piece of wood.

    Surfy with lots of pop

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my go-to board from the quiver, especially when it's deep. The carbon fiber insert takes all you can give it through the turns, and your efforts come back in spades as you pop out into the next stash. Love this board.

    favorite new board

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This board is different than anything I have ever used, in a really good way. The ride is hard charging and playful in the powder but great in all conditions. Highly recommend this board.

    True love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Model A, just laying in bed thinking about what I want to write here and reminiscing on all the pow days, perfect courderouy carving, and endless amounts of flight time on this board last winter has me smiling ear to ear. I’ve been riding the Model A as my go to board for two season now and I can say with confidence that this board takes the cake. Powerful, snappy, yet with a flat chamber profile that allows for easy transitions in and out of turns with effortless style. Ive attaches a top to bottom run at Mt. Bachelor for you to feast your eyes on! Enjoy, you won’t be disappointed when you make this purchase!

    Born to Ride

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been snowboarding for 24 years and I've rode every board you can imagine. When I strapped into the Model A and took those first turns, I knew I'd found my one true love. It was game over. I could tell you all about the incredible pop, the seamless transitions, and the effortless float, but you wouldn't believe me. Go ride a SnoPlank and then thank Odin and the Snow Gods you're alive to experience it. Surf the earth my friends.

    SnowPlanks Model A

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really like this board for ripping all the terrain and conditions I ride in the Northwest. It’s light and snappy with a great flex pattern, allowing me to rail turns on the hard pack, easily float and keep speed through the pow, and loves to blast off any lips you choose. If I could only have one board in my quiv, the Model A would be it!

    This board slays it all!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I rode the Model A for the 2017-2018 season.... in nearly every condition and there is nothing this board can't handle. Every thing from fast groomers to deep pow & everything in between I have literally riden this board in every condition & you know what? It slays everything. I love how aggressive the board can be yet playful at the same time. Super poppy when you want it to be yet can charge big mountain lines without hesitation. Also - I get lots of comments on how good the board looks. Your entire quiver in one board!!

    The real deal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You have to start with the feel of these boards, which is unique to any of the mass produced lines out there, regardless of the label. They have such a lively pop and response in the parks and an effortless float in pow that is second to none. They are no novelty board either, I've put my well being in the hands of the edges and plan shape of my model A and leaned into double black diamond groomers at mach 10 with 100% confidence in a successful transition to the opposing edge. I'm no pro rider, but I've seen Snoplank ambassadors shred on these boards in competition and the back country. I custom ordered my plank cause I wanted some added float and that beautiful swallow tail they offer. Keep in mind, these boards are hand shaped by true mountain dogs that practice what they preach and love talking snowboards. Bottom line, order one up, gear up on POW day, find a tree well to get adjusted and go snow surfing! You can thank me later...

    The Model A rocks.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I could not be happier with the way this board rides. Not only is it the coolest looking board on the mountain, but it performs even better than it looks. Every time I ride this board I get asked about it by boarders and skiers in line with me. SnoPlanks is an environmentally minded, local company that I love to support. Go Bend, OR!

    Unanswered Question

    With this shape, can you get away with riding faking if you land backwards? Or does the shape make it too hard? Thanks!
