2010 Model No Longer Available
Weekend Snowboards Heikki Sorsa Snowboard - 2010 BCS
The glaciers on Finland's epic mountains are big and burly, but the weather in Cali is a tad bit better, which is why bangin' rider Heikki Sorsa is a promoter of soCal sun. He's a Fin who shreds the big, frozen landscape of his homeland and soaks up the sun of SoCal whenever he can. And he does it on the super-poppy, crazy-versatile, cambered Heikki Sorsa Snowboard.
- Crafted at a super-secret location in the Alps by a unique breed of engineering-savy loggers using top-notch wood (so yeah, made in Austria)
- Triaxial fiberglass enhances the natural flex of the core to ensure that the smooth flex is consistent and that the pop is more predictable
- Kevlar reinforcements take a beating so your board doesn’t have to suffer as much
- Structurn sintered base material gets you up to speed quickly so you can avoid kissing stairs, molesting rails, and having your knuckles make love to the ground
- The board game graphics will inspire you to play more board games on the weekend

Let me start but saying this thing is insane!, You want it to turn it turns, you wanna jump... your already in the air, you wanna... well you get the point, this thing handles incredibly. I'm 6 foot 160 lbs with a size 12 boot and the only size they had left in stock was a 153 and i'm used to riding a 159/156. I was a little scared it would be too small or my heel/toes would drag but all those worries went away on my first run. By the end of the day I was bombing blacks at full speed without a single fall on what is considered by most to be a freestyle board given my height and weight. All in all just a really fun, poppy, light, fast, and forgiving snowboard. My one and only complaint is that it has an extruded instead of sintered base. Its actually really fast for a extruded board because of the golf ball like dimples they put in it, but base durability is still only as good as a normal extruded base. It gets nicks and scratches easier then a sintered base but its also easier to repair them so i guess thats a plus. As far as the rest of the boards durability goes, its top notch =D I went to keystone the other day and my board was whapped by about 3 people pretty good but there aren't any signs of it on the board itself.
P.s. The top sheet is sick... I literally had a lifty at a-basin, a lifty at keystone, and a skier at keystone all say that, and they keystone lifty even stopped me to ask where I got it, lol. ;) I realize there sold out of this years model but do yourself and you wallet a favor and pick up one of these bad boys if you see em on sale.
