Nitro Swindle Snowboard
The Nitro Swindle Snowboard answers the cries of rail rats who are tired of paying too much for snowboards they end up destroying anyway. Nitro left out the bells and whistles, and focused on the important stuff like a durable Powercore II core, and extra-beefy Railkiller edges designed to withstand even the most botched gap-to attempts. Add in a buttery flex and Zero-camber shape that locks into presses, blunts, and slides, and you end up with a serious street and park jibbing machine.
- NEW Whiplash core profiling is thinner between the inserts and beefier under your feet, for max ollie power and locked-in press tricks
- Zero-camber flat profile for a poppy yet forgiving ride that's somewhere between rocker and camber
- Powercore II tip-to-tail wood core for durability and pop
- Bi-Lite laminate for a buttery flex and lots of independent foot control
- Railkiller edges are thicker than normal to resist damage from rails, boxes, and rocks
- Low-maintenance Scratch & Rip base wears in like your skate deck

Sick Park Board!

Zero camber shape is my personal favorite because of the way it locks onto rails and I feel that it's more predictable than other hybrid cambers. The Swindle seems pretty durable so far (no surprise there), but the best thing about this board in my opinion is the Superstache technology/reflex core profile, which in English means they thinned out the core between the inserts and thickened it underfoot. The theory is that it gives you a playful feel, while still giving you insane pop and control on landings or at higher speeds and hell... it works! I couldn't believe the pop on this thing! For a softer board, it also held its own in powder (although definitely not its specialty) when Seven Springs had a couple little stashes in their glades too. If you love rails, boxes, buttering around, and don't frequently hit jumps over 30ft, this board is perfect. If you want a more of a jump board or park board that excels at all mountain though, opt for the Rook, Team Gullwing, or T1. I own the TG and Rook as well
One of the best rail boards out there!
