Another first for Travis’s ever evolving line of freeride monsters.
The Golden Orca fills a need for a slightly more “freestyle” version of the Orca.
Still the same floaty nose, but a totally redesigned tail, which gives the board a much more stable platform for landing switch, and in turn taking off switch. Slightly less taper. Travis has really been playing with this one for the past few years, testing multiple prototypes till the recipe was 100% right.
The tail is modelled closely off the TR Pro, but with added pow-kink tech.
Add this one to your quiver, but be warned, there will be no excuses for not landing that back 5 into pow, or stomping that cab 5 off that windlip. The Golden Orca is the sled that makes it all possible.
What makes this board tick?
· Firepower construction:
· 50% Aspen / 40% Paulonia / 10% Balsa core
· 100% Tri-ax glass with +/- Basalt webbing
· Bio Beans Top Sheet, Eco Sublimated Sintered Base
· Slim Spin profiled tip and tail
ORCA SIZING: Ride this board 3cm shorter than your normal board due to the bigger volume in a smaller package.
