Cardiff The Swell Splitboard
The Cardiff Swell is a big-mountain gun that lives for the steep and deep but still holds its own in variable in-bounds conditions.
Cardiff’s big-mountain snow surfer designed for steep lines and all-time conditions, the Swell Enduro is the board for those out searching for the ultimate ride. The Swell's unique, ocean-inspired shape combines a wide, ultra-floaty tip, the gradual rocker of our HALFcamber™ design, 30mm of taper, and Cardiff’s Wingpin tail—which makes for quick and nimble maneuverability in tight terrain—to create a board that rides the wave without the need to paddle out. For the Swell's original artwork, Sam Bawden expressed the board's dual inspirations of fine-tuned woodcraft and ocean-inspired performance.
The CARDIFF HALFcamber™ places camber where it is absolutely necessary and gradual rocker everywhere else. The result is maximum glide, maneuverability, and edge control.
Every Cardiff snowboard is uniquely designed to match the shape to the camber - resulting in a new standard of performance.
Big float, small board: by placing more surface area under foot and a gradual nose rocker the patent-pending HALFcamber™ allows us to create shorter boards with more float.
For those that require durability and dependibility
The Enduro build is for those that require the most durable, reliable and high performance equipment. This build features our CARBONcore and triaxial fiberglass construction which creates a torsionally rigid ride and adds strength to the board for increased durability.
For those that demand cutting edge ultralight gear
This is a true 100% carbon fiber construction build. The core is a lightweight poplar + paulownia mix with vertically laid aluminum strips which balances the carbon to give it a more damp ride. in our splitboard models we added reinforcements under the toe piece and the ENDUROcap. On the solid version we use our urethane SHOWtopper finish, which allows for quick and easy snow shedding.
