We built the ARK

This board was designed by former US Open Halfpipe Champion and two-time LBS Pro Masters champion Rob Kingwill to be a true quiver killer.

The ARK pushes into new realms of possibility, making it easy to ride anywhere — from the steepest big mountain lines to competition halfpipes.

The ARK’s directional twin shape has an early-rise in the nose and tail, along with a super poppy camber profile, making it carve like a samurai sword in virtually all conditions.

Camber Profile

The ARK has an early-rise in the nose for smooth lift in powder and is designed with a modified twin shape for riding regular or fakie to satisfy your freestyle cravings.

    This board is sick!

    I just rode this board and now I want to throw my board in the trash! Seriously though, this board is incredible and so fun. I could lay it all the way over on the edge and feel completely secure in turns where I would have to baby my old board. I could go so much faster and feel completely confident. Took it through a banked slalom and it held the lines rock solid. Thank you Winterstick, this is an amazing board!!!

    Surfing down the Mountain

    I only ride my Swallowtail 163 on bigger powder days and it is a blast. The board feels very light and easily floats on top of the snow. It feels like I am surfing down the mountain! Riding this board feels natural on powder days. I love my Swallowtail and get lots of compliments on the chairlift!

    First, I need to commend the Winterstick crew, I ordered my swallowtail and they had it at my door lightning quick. Second, I have had many swallowtail splits and I have never ridden pow that feels this close to surfing. The Winterstick swallowtail turns faster than you would think. Third, Rob Lu is incredibly professional and helpful. The board is a dream. Thank you so much

    Love the wescot pro so much I decided to get the altered pow version ,…the Daydreamer. Rails groomers, obviously great in powder. I’ll take this in brackett basin and burnt mnt when snow is good. I have the 159, and it’s perfect for that terrain. Tight trees, rock drops, float,… it does it all.

    * side note on the swallowtail*…. It’s a 5 star. Not sure why i have 4. But if I could give it a 10 I would, as well as the daydreamer. 10 out of 10.
