There are few boards equipped to handle Josh Dirksen’s authoritative, all-mountain riding style, and the Salomon Super 8 Snowboard has been tested and proven as just the right tool for the job. This high-powered quiver-killer uses Backseat Camber, which has camber under the back foot for explosive turning power, and is flat under the front foot to keep it playful in powder, enabling you to thrive in every zone on the mountain. Rocket Science Shaping lends the Super 8 extra width for increased stability and float, allowing you to downsize a few centimeters for quick-turning agility and confident stability when you’re threading through tight trees and pointing narrow chutes. The board’s Popster core lives up to its name by delivering powerful pop and response, as well as high levels of impact-resistance when you get bitten by a hidden snow shark. Ghost Basalt Stringers give you some serious snap, while Royal Rubber Pads in the sidewalls dampen the board from the choppy, busted-up conditions that occur towards the end of a powder day. Salomon also added in the smooth edge-to-edge feel of a quadratic sidecut, and fast glide of a sintered base for crushing high-speed laps all over with tons of control.
