The Emoticon takes the user-friendly performance of the Basic but in a tailored design that targets a woman's size and weight. Narrower, softer and a more forgiving blended sidecut has made this board a multi-time TWS Goodwood Award winner since its release seven years ago.

Passion is the most important guidance to me, that’s why, as a textile & graphic designer I want to keep sharing it into a lot of different projects. After designing clothes for a surf brand during the last decade, it’s pretty exciting to create graphics for snowboards
Flex rating: 4/10
UnderBite edges re-distribute a rider’s weight in such a way that it enhances turning ease and edge hold.
Creating divots inward at the binding area reduces and disrupts the surface area of the edge that has contact with the snow while the board is turning. This increases the edge pressure by distributing your weight/energy in the areas where you need it - from the binding out, and through the center of the board where the carving arc is taking place. This segmentation of the sidecut into 3 key zones focuses your body weight onto areas that initiate, hold and release turns.
Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.
Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.
