Based out of Oregon, SnoPlanks have been making quite the name for themselves in the board-building world lately, and the Asym Fish Snowboard is an excellent example of why that may be. With a design inspired by surfboard shapers, the Asym Fish uses a medium flex and huge rockered nose and swallowtail to plane over and surf through the deepest pow. Beyond surfability, the unique outline utilizes varying edge lengths and sidecuts to assist in turn initiations and hold. On the toe side, the longer edge towards the tail and nose give more edgehold on long drawn-out bottom turns, which puts more force and speed into your heelside turns without any effort thanks to the deeper sidecut and shorter contact points. Essentially, all of that means that while this board truly thrives on deep powder days, the fun shape allows for aggressive bottom turns and powerful pop off side hits and windlips when there hasn't been much new snow lately. A large rockered nose plows over thigh-deep snow without skipping a beat, while the medium flex, poppy core, and sintered base keep you charging with confidence over choppy or hardpack conditions.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
