The Compatriot La Mosca Snowboard is the all-mountain freestyle weapon of choice of shred legend Kevin Jones. The La Mosca features a FlatCamber profile designed to make pressing and stomping landings a little easier, without sacrificing high-speed control or pop off the lip. Offered in two sizes: a 148cm for jib and park riding, and a slightly stiffer 160cm for cliffs, chutes, and all-around ripping.
- Cowboy Core uses multi-density tip-to-tail wood for pop and durability
- FlatCamber technology uses a flatter, mellower version of traditional camber
- CFX91 carbon stringers add ollie power
- Sintered UHMW p-tex sidewalls for durability and vibration dampening
- Durasurf 4000 sintered base for awesome wax retention and all-around speed

La Mosca top scratches
The La Mosca seems to have a soft top coating, it scratches very easily, when it arrived it was already scratched. It is probably more visible because of its dark color and glossy top coat. Otherwise I really like it, in the light the wood grain is visible.
Close up of the base
Base was a little rough when i first got it but it was still super fast.
The top sheet seems to feel like glue. i didn't even put a stomp pad on and skating to a lift/tow rope didn't give me any problems.
Board Dye is questionable
It looks like the base either isn't very thick or has inconsistent dye. it still rides great and doesn't seem to be bad. Found this out doing a wax.
Taking the La Mosca out to the park
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
i needed a new park board and this was on sale so i picked it right up. it's pretty flexy but stiffer than some other park boards i've tried. medium stiff is a pretty good description.
when the describe their flat camber or "mellow camber"
nuh uh. this is positive camber. you can feel it and see it.
