Treat the whole mountain like a park.
Dinosaurs Will Die co-founder Jeff Keenan likes to ride fast and kick ass all over the mountain, and he does it with the Kwon Snowboard. A hybrid camber and medium flex give the Kwon the versatility to tackle everything from charging down groomers and playing around in the park to surfing through pow on deep days.
New this season is a hybrid camber designed to provide all the benefits of camber in a more forgiving package. Camber between the inserts gives it pop, power, and edge hold, flat sections towards the tips maintain stability and allow fluid turn initiation, and slight rocker at the tips gives it a catch-free feel to save your ass when you don't quite get your rotation around.
Biax glass gives the Kwon a buttery feel for tweaked presses, and the twin shape allows for switch takeoffs and landings. The lightweight and lively poplar core has been beefed up this season with birch strips running along the inserts from tip to tail that increase strength, prevent blowouts, and enhance pop. The sintered base holds wax well and is durable to take a beating during urban sessions.

Great all around board!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ive been riding the Kwon for over a season and it has held up great. I am 5'10'' 175lbs and ride the 156. It is my go to board for all mountain riding, really fun in the park as well as just cruising. It has power and pop between your feet but is soft and playful with the flat camber on the tips. It holds an edge like a champ and is a blast in powder and slushy conditions. I definitely recommend this board for someone who is looking for a great all mountain ride.
