Cardiff The Powgoda Splitboard
Surfy, responsive, and full of snap, the Cardiff Powgoda is a highly maneuverable, go-anywhere board that blurs the lines between freestyle, freeride, and powder.
The first board to reach for when storm totals crest into double digits, the Cardiff Powgoda is a playful, pow-centric design that will remind you why you started snowboarding. Designed for the deep but fully capable in a wide variety of conditions, the Powgoda floats, carves, slashes, and butters with ease. Cardiff’s HALFcamber™ design and a perfectly matched pivot point under the front foot, inspires confidence in deep snow, helps you stay afloat and serves up premium maneuverability. Sam Bawden created the Powgoda's original artwork, inspired by the complex joinery and sophisticated design of Japan's Hōryū-ji pagoda.
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.
BUTTERblunt nose & WINGtail
This nose and tail are designed to allow easy transition from side to side but massive float without the extra length and weight of traditional powder shapes. This creates the perfect nose and tail to pop and butter.
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.
