My Not-a-pro' Model Snowboard!

Posted on February 23, 2017

This is the snowboard model I designed with Chugach Flyer Snowboards for the 2016/'17 winter season. It is an ideal powder freestyle board named after the native tribe of my heritage in Alaska. The Alutiiq is a Lifted 163cm wide true twin with traditional camber & standard radius edges. The tips have a unique shape with an initial transition at the contact point into a 23 degree angle flat tip that is extended for maximum efficiency in powder. The contact point to contact point measures that of a 160cm with an overall length of a 168cm. So, in essence, it is a short board that floats like a long board. Significant sidecut gives it a tight turning radius, so it is very playful & fun, with a mid-flex to match.

The Alutiiq is availble for sale at some snowboard shops in & around Anchorage & Girdwood Alaska, & directly through www.chugachflyer.com. Chugach Flyer Snowboards also has an active Facebook page that offers more information. Chugach Flyer Snowboards are made in Alaska, with Alaskan materials & artwork by Alaskans, & with the Spirit of Alaska in every board!
