Description

The Trout Trap is a powder shape through and through but delivers more than you'd expect. Maximized float and glide are balanced along it's length rather than relying on a sinking tail to keep the nose up. This creates a board that is highly maneuverable and carries as much speed as possible through all terrain. This means bigger pow slashes, more face shots, more flow, and no getting stuck in the flats.

For the surfers, this board is a translation of a 5'6" twin fin with lots of volume and a broad tail; floats, short, nimble, and generates plenty of down the line speed. Catch more waves on the Trout Trap!

You'll find the Trout Trap is surprisingly versatile. From deep powder days to carving ruts on groomers. Tight chutes, deep or not, to surfing low angle terrain with armpit deep pow (think Japan).


Good fit:
  • Riders looking to add a real powder board to their quiver
  • Still want to have fun carving on hard-pack
  • Going on a vacation to Japan...
Bad fit:
  • Like doing 180s
  • Don't like pretty colors
  • For another versatile carver see the Poacher

Handcrafted Excellence

Days riding on this board:11-25, Review:I've had the Trout Trap for a couple seasons now and it's an awesome choice for "large" days at Kicking Horse, here in Golden. Beautiful craftsmanship comes through in the attention to detail and how it performs. These boards are made by people who know what they're doing and who truly love the sport. Ursa Major is on its way soon...

Powder dream, and resort charger

Days riding on this board:51-100, Review:This was my wife's engagement gift to me, at my request. I had been admiring Greg's design on this for a while, and was impressed with his approach to the build. I took it to Whitewater on a pow day, hiking slackline as the day progressed. Endless float in the deep, followed by surprisingly fast lines in the groom. Holds the line super well and carves like a resort board. I mostly use the board for cat-boarding trips. It is fast, light, dreamy and snappy. Ripping tree lines is a delight. Wide open bowls are playful, with the whiteroom abounding. It is super stable dropping cliffs, landing solidly without nose diving. I loved it so much I bought the split version. After dozens of days, it still looks new.

Powder surfer, wirk of art!

Days riding on this board:11-25, Review:This board has been nice, stiff and floaty for those deep powder days. The directional shape makes it so I never worry about keeping it up!

Pow, Tree, Grooms, does it all and does it well!

6'-0", 180 lbs, riding on a 155. Two years on this thing now, and spend all of last season on it after wrecking my all mountain/rock board. First the obvious, this thing crushes in powder. It floats effortlessly in low angle deep, but it's stiff enough to charge when it gets steep. It's nimble with that short tail and really lets me flick it around in the trees for quick direction changes. What surprised me was the versatility! On groomers it can carve really well with that extra bit of width and poppy camber, and that relatively stiff little block of a tail I can just load the back foot and dig it in for a long swoop of a turn. Only downside is the nose sometimes works against it. When it gets rough and bumpy there's a third of the board out front so it can start to get a little flappy slappy, but really that's not what it's meant for. Great board, permanent resident in my quiver.
