Take your park and pipe tricks to big-mountain terrain, just like Paavo.
The Endeavor Paavo Snowboard won the Future Snowboarding Magazine Top 10 Award for 2007 and is a past Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood winner. This all-mountain freestyle board begs for aggressive, versatile riders. If you, like pro Paavo Tikkanen, spend only part of your time honing your skillz in the park and pipe, and then take that style and aggression and apply it to the rest of the mountain, you're gonna love this board. Sandwich construction with ABS screened sidewalls create a highly durable, responsive snowboard that has enough dampening to take the sting out of heavy jib sessions. The poplar wood core features carbon stringers for excellent pop and flex memory, so the Paavo's ride is consistent from your first hit of the season to your last big gap. This medium-stiff board is very agile from edge to edge. Endeavor gave it a directional shape and a pow-friendly tail profile for applying your freestyle steeze to the entire mountain.
yup the topsheet gets scratched way too easily. i dropped a screw from my bindings from an inch above the board by accident and it made a little dent on the topsheet. the board is solid though, very stiff and poppy, great for riding on hard pack and powder, and goes perfectly with m/l union bindings.
I own last year's Paavo, and I loved riding it. This is a fun board to ride, however, the board is very fragile. The top of the board gets scratched easily and for this reason, I might have to get a new board pretty soon. I hope Endeavor makes more durable board than just functional board.
