Original Swallowtail® – Pre-Order


SKU: swallowtail Category:


“Ever since I got involved with Winterstick I had been wanting to make changes to the Original Swallowtail® shape that the brand had been building for many years. While it shined in perfect untracked conditions it had some awkward handling moments on hardpack or on long traverses. Our head engineer Rob Lu listened to my thoughts and took us where we needed to go. Shifting the sidecut forward towards the center of the stance and getting more effective edge ahead of the front foot. Opening up the sidecut for more high performance in big mountain situations and a wider waist width to accommodate better carving control when it’s not bottomless.”     – Seth Wescott

    I wanted to let you know how much I love my board!

    Winterstick has exceeded my expectations. From the quality craftsmanship, to the fantastic riding performance. This is the nicest board I have ever seen much less owned.

    First the top sheet is insane, craftsmanship like I have never seen. It is truly a work of art. Second, the base is perfect. I enjoy waxing snowboards, and this was a pleasure to wax. To have a board so big and wide with a perfectly flat smooth bottom is something you don’t see in most snowboards.

    I was told that this board would float the pow like no other and also cruise the hard pack as well. Exceeded expectations again!

    I have been lucky enough to have had 3 outrageous pow days at Baker with the swally. Two 14 inch mornings of new and a 17. Wow did it perform, The tip never went under. I did not get stuck, even in the deepest wettest, heaviest pow on the planet. When it turned to chunder I bashed through with ease.

    I have now become Winterstick’s new lift line ambassador. I can’t get through a lift line without several inquiries, or ride the chair without singing the praises of Winterstick snowboards.
