If you are looking for effortless powder turns, the Shorty is your board. The Tip-Tail-Rocker with low camber gives you perfect buoyancy and balance in powder. The hook-free Diamond Tail makes turning extremely easy in packed snow. The ash and poplar wood core redefines your performance level, allowing precise control on every terrain, and carbon stringers guarantee torsional stiffness for better rebound and solid edge grip. The extra thin nose section helps with easy direction changes in deep snow.

The Shorty features the Diamond Tail, a hook-free design combined with a longer nose for the powder performance of a bigger board – Volume Economy Tech. The result is a forgiving and playful design with plenty of performance when you need it.
We build our snowboards with 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 Shorty has 6 mm camber and is one of the easiest boards to manoeuvre in our range.
At Stranda Snowboards we use ash wood and a minor part poplar in our cores. Ash is perfect for building high-performance snowboards as it dampens vibrations and holds its camber, extending the life of your board. Adding poplar keeps the weight down. 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 adds to performance.
