Korua Shapes Pocket Rocket Snowboard

 

Boardworks Breakdown:

 

Manufacturer Description: 

Our continually improved Pocket Rocket shape is a micro-cruiser that introduces a completely new shredding experience. Our newest version is now part of the classic line, featuring traditional binding inserts & the same sidecut as its predecessor — making it a tight-turning carving machine at lower speeds. It's a super playful board that is easy to handle, especially on smaller features. Like an old-school skate deck, it's short, loose, and one hell of a ride!

    This chart shows the range in what each size can handle. It is never our intention to categorize riders and their preferences. Our philosophy of snowboarding is to try new shapes, lengths, widths, and to keep an open mind for alternative riding experiences; however, we do have some limits to consider so that your board will work as it was designed to.

    Your weight plays a major role in how the board will flex, and your shoe size will affect toe and heel drag when turning. The below size chart is for reference only, as our recommendations may vary depending on your stance and riding ability.
