Japow Snowboard

Simplify your riding to experience ultimate control and powder freedom on the Weston Japow Snowboard. This board gives you all the tools you need to lay clean long carves and controlled turns on everything from early morning runs to the deepest day of your season. The key to this supreme edge to edge control is the directional shape, tapered nose, and swallow tail that work together to sink the tail and raise the nose in powder.

On firm snow this shape allows for simple turn initiation, while the swallow tail drives even more power to your engaged edge to inspire additional confidence. The profile balances power and float in powder by combining a powerful camber section underfoot, a flat tail, and rocker out to the tip. By focusing on specifics the Japow provides you with all of the float, control, and feel you need for an incredible day on hill with or without new snow.

  • Float effortlessly on the deepest days with this swallowtail board
  • Rocker-camber-flat profile holds a strong edge and floats in powder
  • Medium flex is easily manipulated for effortless turn initiation
  • Directional swallowtail shape thrives when carving and in powder
  • Triax fiberglass layers add torsional rigidity for enhanced edging
  • Tail V Carbon adds carbon in the tail for added spring and stiffness
  • Poplar and bamboo core is responsive, poppy, and durable
  • Sintered base holds wax, is easily repaired, and glides in any snow
  • Item #WST1WUB

This board is one of the best made swallow tails I have ever ridden. Break this puppy out on those nip-deep days to surf some chowda or rip some groomers with ease. Super good edge hold at high speeds and easily maneuverable so riding deep snow in tight trees is no sweat. Weston is quite literally the next big thing in snowboarding, a USA based company who makes their board with good quality and sustainable materials.

I ride the Japow 69 and it rules on a pow day. I got to ride some deep at Silverton and the Japow is at home on big fall line Blower. It will stay in control flying down faces at high speeds. You can check speed easy and lay out house sized. It utterly stomps big airs. The swallowtail is so fun to ride and sinks you in for a fun floaty feel. When charging it is like a luxury yacht. When you slow it down you can surf it into fun pockets and jam all over the mini shred. The big nose is great. You won't tomahawk and it saves a lot of leg. On cattracks and paths it flies fast and you plow roads. The nose doesn't really get in the way but more so acts as this awesome plow. You chop turns from center of the board and there is nothing more fun than barely putting it on edge and sending and sending snow flying with high speed micro checks. Landed some big ones on the Japow and even rode big bx jumps on it. It really crushes chunder. You just lean back and smack through everything in the way.

Such a super fun pow surfing snowboard. Big fat nose, taper, set back stance and swallow tail let this board devour the deep pow days. Surprisingly, it has a really fun carve to it when you're making your way across the groomers.
