2012–2013

ACADEMY SNOWBOARD CO. GOOD PEOPLE. GREAT SNOWBOARDS. Since 2002 we’ve kept our fundamentals quite simple; quality, progression and individuals. Quality because we build only the best possible snowboards and stand behind our product 100% with a 1-year Warranty. Progression because we only want to improve our technology to make better riding snowboards. And of course, Individuals, which are all the characters that make our family special. Everybody is different but we all have one thing in common, the love for snowboarding and riding with our friends. We also give back to our fellow scholastic shredders with our scholarship programs and through our snow camps to help kids learn something new. Thanks for the support, have fun and enjoy!

EASY TO RIDE, SOFT FLEX, RESPONSIVE, CONTROL


TECH OVERVIEW CONSTRUCTION SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION Tip to tail wood core “sandwiched” between layers of fiberglass and base material with specially formulated ABS sidewalls. Time tested performance with excellent torsional stability, edge hold and durability. Standard feature on all boards. TIP TO TAIL WOOD CORE Lightweight Canadian aspen wood cores run from the length of the board providing maximum strength, consistent flex patterns and ensure maximum longevity. WDT HYBRID CORE Spruce wood infused with plastic particles to eliminate break and snap factor. Softer flex pattern, excellent board memory, environmentally friendly, 22% lighter and will not pack out like an all-wood core. STAINLESS 10MM INSERTS 10MM stainless steel inserts are super strong, light and wont rust. Half-spaced insert patterns allow the rider to dial in a perfect stance. Standard feature on all boards. CARBON CORD FIBERGLASS WEAVE Carbon fiber cords are woven directly into the tri-ax fiberglass during production, fusing the carbon and fiberglass as one to eliminate flat spots. CCFW delivers a true, stiffer flex curve from tip to tail and increased camber memory. SINTERED 4000 UHMW Sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight base has excellent wax absorption, resulting in greater speeds without compromised durability, making it easy to maintain. This high end material is top choice for serious riders. EXT 2000 Extruded base is easy to belt grind to a smooth finish and can be repaired in your garage with a stick of Ptex and an iron. It is less expensive than sintered bases to maintain.

Helping our fellow snowboarders stay in school: Foundation Scholarships 4 Regional scholarships available

FLEX RATINGS Different board flex patterns maximize different aspects of snowboarding, response, stability, forgivingness, etc. Softer boards are more forgiving and easier to turn, but less stable. Stiffer boards are more stable at high speeds, but less forgiving. The higher the number on the flex weight, the stiffer the board.

TERRAIN RATINGS MOUNTAIN Powder lines, steep chutes, fun groomers, high speed ollies and anything and everything between. PARK Jibs, boxes, butters, rails, kinks, cheese wedges, hips, gaps, barrel bonks, scary takeoffs and even scarier landings. STREET Handrails, ledges, picnic tables, late night urban destruction. PIPE Big trannies, hips, tough landings, icy mornings, pop, pop, pop.
