Moss

a Legacy of Japanese Snowsurfing

 

FILMED BY WARP WAVE

Since its inception in the early 1970s, snowboarding has evolved and grown in countless shapes, forms, and styles. In this film, we travel to Japan to meet with Japanese Snowsurf Godfather, Shinzo Tanuma- creator of Moss Snowstick; to gain a deeper insight into the roots of this now global style of snowsurfing.

From the waves of the Japanese coastline, to the quiet mountains blanketed in deep snow, we flow with the environment, meet, and ride with the extended Moss family across Japan. Witnessing authentic styles, and learning about inspirations, connections, and environments, we are left with a deeper appreciation for snowsurfing's past and an excitement for its future.


fishbone models

 

Fishbone models are the next generation in snowsurf board design, specially handcrafted to mimic a swimming fish and flow with you through the terrain. Like the bones and flesh of a fish, hard, flexible and soft parts work together to optimize a natural and intuitive riding experience. This structure makes tips and tails lighter and torsionally softer but longitudinally stiff underfoot. The outcome is an extremely maneuverable and playful board that is highly adaptable to variable conditions. 

Limited quantity only available at Tahoe Sports Hub (CA), Bordworks Tech Shop (WA) and Backcountry.com.
