Korua Shapes Pencil Snowboard


Boardworks Breakdown:


Manufacturer Description: 


The Pencil is a classic line favorite and a true all-round shape, built for effortless turns in all types of snow conditions. It’s designed for those riders who are looking for the one board that does it all. Over the years it has steadily held its place as a go-to-shape in our line, and has withstood the test (and turns) of time.




The slight swallowtail offers playfulness out the back while still providing the stability and torsion necessary for solid edge-hold. The taper makes it reactive, easy to set on edge, and feel shorter than it appears. The pointy nose maintains speed when coming out of powder turns and keeps the spray out of your face.

    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.

    Camber Profile

    The Pencil features our FLOAT CAMBER, which curves into a rocker shape in the nose. This profile helps you stay on top in deep powder while maintaining speed throughout the turn. The camber under-foot offers grip and stability on hard-pack and in variable conditions, while the early rise in the nose allows for an easy initiation of turns.



    Biaxial fiberglass, UV laquer topsheet, poplar light wood core and a high-end perlatec base is the tried-and-tested combination of our durable materials we use to enable that perfect turn.
