Korua Shapes Pin Tonic Snowboard


Boardworks Breakdown:


Manufacturer Description: 


This modern pin-tail shape is built for longboard lovers of all sizes, not just the tall riders! The idea was to design a longboard that turns on a dime like a shorter board, while keeping the benefits of its actual length – such as the extra stability and surface area. These features provide effortless float and speed in powder, and it's highly likely you'll be cruising past your friends throwing shakas while they're stuck in the deep snow.




The reduced effective edge makes this board turn way shorter than it appears. The pin-tail itself gives you tons of response from your back foot, which is especially useful at higher speeds and allows for easy switch riding without sinking the tail. This board shines in low-angle terrain, and lets you keep your speed while remaining agile in the trees.

    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 Pin Tonic 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.



    ddBiaxial 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.
