The 2020 Gentemstick Rocket Fish snowboard is designed for those that are looking for a true powder experience like no other. With a deep fish tail and an innovative shape, the Rocket Fish is ready to open up a whole new world of powder possibilities.
Gentemstick boards originated in the powder-heavy lands of Niseko, Japan are the brain-child of legendary snowboarder and a surfer Taro Tamai. The board shapes often take heavy inspiration from the retro snowboards of the 80's along with modern surfboards, offering riders a floaty, surfy ride that feels like nothing you have experienced before. These uniquely designed snowboards boast true ingenuity and legendary craftsmanship.
The world-record class nose width provides the float. The short length ensures super-swift moves. The bamboo-core promises a strong snap-back and the deep fish-tail a distinct manoeuvrability. The super-short and super-fat outline assures an extraordinary carving ability and an incredible sense of speed.
The Rocket Fish uses Gentemstick's Acceleration Camber, which features flat from the widest point of the nose to the front foot, before going into positive camber in the middle to the tail. Incredibly, applying weight to the board pushes the camber arc down and subsequently lifts the nose. This gives the board next-level float and pin-point control, even in the deepest of snow.
The riding image of this board doubles the one of surfing down-the-line of a fast-breaking wave. It will swim like a fish, surfing natural half-pipes as if on a reeling reef-break. Rip side-banks in the resorts and carve like a razor blade on the groomers. Rocket fish: The ultimate snow surfboard for the true snow surfer.
