Bryan Iguchi Pro Camber
Inspired by ’80s skateboards, the Guch’s wide nose improves float in powder, and the camber keeps the board responsive and ideal for steep mountain lines.
While the graphics pay homage to past Burton boards, the Deep Thinker has the latest tech built in: a carbon-fiber layer keeps it light while adding pop to jumps and ollies.
The Attack Banana’s deck combines a traditional camber on the edges, for an aggressive ride, and a reverse, cres- cent-shape bend between your feet, for a freestyler’s dream.
With a shorter toe-side edge and a longer heel-side one, turns on the Space Case are smooth. A front nose that’s the same length as the tail means riding switch is also a breeze.
