With its aggressive side cut, the Dark Star's natural inclinations are straight lines, long arcing turns, and high-velocity smears. Early rise with slight camber underfoot, a mid-wide body that tapers, a notched tail, and progressively stiffer flex all contribute to superb float in powder and confidence landing big drops. Put all together, this board excels most at hard-charging all conditions every day.
The Dark Star is certified to rip on: Chest Deep, RPK1-3, Cold Smoke, Free Refills, Upside Down, Dust on Crust, Crud, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Blower, Egg Carton, Coral Reef, Sierra Cement, Ice Coast, Groomers, Cream Cheese, and Rocks Margarita.
Maple/Ash cores optimize the responsive high-energy ride of Hard Maple with the impact and vibration absorption of White Ash.
