The Rogue Wave was the only handmade, custom-shaped board of the test and it in remains in a league of its own for the combination of smooth ride through chop and stiff and reactive pop. This Rogue Wave wakestyle/freestyle twin satisfies both the dedicated freestyle enthusiast or the freeride junkie that dabbles in everything. The dominatrix style bottom shape with its centered concave, combined with the softer hand shaped rails, delivers smooth but precise feel that’s unmatched by most production snowboard style shapes of today. Each year the Rogue Wave twin has seen some modest refinements that have made it more precise and improved overall pop. The construction is lightweight, very durable and stiff and despite its longer length this board felt manageable in a wide range of wind conditions. The Rogue Wave freestyle twin is suitable to both intermediate to advanced riders that value some versatility, mad pop and a smooth, controllable ride through chop.
Footbed and Strap System: Jimmy Lewis Adjustable Strap System
When you order your custom board from Rogue Wave you can have it equipped with the new Jimmy Lewis adjustable bed and strap system. This traditional Velcro adjustable strap works well and the new dual-density foam beds provide ample heel cushion and toe grip. Another great feature of buying a custom board is you can specify your stance options and get the board blank if you prefer another style of strap system.
