3 Since when you are on hard snowboarding.
Since 25 Years.
4 What do you think about new tecnologies: decamber, rocker, taper, multi radius, materials such as carbon fiber and titanal , plates.
All new technologies are good for a special kind of board.
Decamber und rocker are good for easy going.
The board is easier to control at low speed. You don’t need much power to go into a turn.
If you are a good rider and go with high speed decamber and rocker are not so good, because the effective edge is not long enough. Different radius in one board are good. You can do your turn bigger and smaller if you go more to the nose or more to the tail of the board with the center of your body.
It is good for very good riders. Normal riders do not feel the difference to a board, which has only one radius.
Carbon fiber is one of the best materials for hardboot boards. It is very light and gives you a lot of power back at the end of the turn. Titanal is very difficult to handle. Some snowboard builders make their boards with titanal for damping the board. The risk of delamination is very high. I think you can have the same result with the right mixture of rubber, aramid and bambus like my boards. And you do not have the risk of delamination.
Every plasma snowboard is handmade by myself.
The customer can fix all the details of his board: the stiffness, the strength of the torsion, the degree of the damper, the stance and so on.All the materials I use are the best you can have.
Every Plasma is a real custom board.
