The mission was to develop a mountain surfer capable of handling full on carved surf turns in powder, packed or chopped up snow. The result is Nallo, a tool for advanced freeriders with a serious addiction to speed. The long and rockered nose has a very smooth transition to a bigger front radius in order to keep the board on top of packed or heavy snow layers and not digging in. The tapered and rockered tail section makes the Nallo really playful. This is a freedom machine shaped for big mountains!

The Nallo is a board for shaped for European alpine terrain where you often encounter at least three different kind of snow conditions in one run. Windblown crust on the top, deep and glorius powder a bit down, followed by chopped up heavy snow on lower elevation. Nallo is designed for handling it all. The notched “Taper-tail” gives you the support you need for secure jump turns on steep faces but designed to sink in deep snow.
We build our longboards with classic camber and Tip-Tail-Rocker. We distinguish between standard camber and low camber: with low camber, the centre of the board is slightly elevated and the contact points are further towards the centre. The Nallo has 6 mm camber with a Taperd and rockerd tail for easy release in heavy snow.
At Stranda Snowboards we use ash wood and a minor part poplar in our cores. On the Nallo we also added lightweight paulownia inserts in the nose to keep swing weight down. Ash is perfect for building high-performance snowboards as it dampens vibrations and holds its camber, extending the life of your board. Choosing a premium material also allowed us to reduce the use of petroleum-based composites. We use a thin layer of bamboo as the topsheet, which also adds to performance.
