Nail new tricks every time you hit the park with the Rome Hammerhead Snowboard. The super-soft flex and Freepop rocker profile with have you pressing the shit out of features and catching the tightest of trannies with no problem, and a skateboard-like feel keeps the fun meter cranked.
SkateCore profiling creates both the ollie feel of a skateboard and the turny feel of riding on trucks by thinning the board between the bindings and thickening the core under foot. A loose feel is made possible thanks to the ButterOut transition zones. By doubling the length of the transition zones, the section of edge at the contact points are elongated to make for a buttery ride. The QuickRip sidecut features additional contact points near the bindings that allow the board to feel loose at low speeds while still maintaining edge hold at speed. The durable Impact base holds up to bonks and bumps, and a unique nose and tail shape reduces swing weight and is sure to turn heads whenever you ride by.

Dropping the hammer!!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Before I found this board I was five broken boards deep into the season. This was the case because I was a 195 pound rider looking for a short, fun, soft,and playful board. No more cracked top sheets from landing wrong, and no more blown out edges from pre-spinning into rails to hard (Due to the hammer head nose and tail). Doing butters, nose, and tail presses with this board is easy, but it is also easy to over do it and spring over the end of your board if you are leaning to hard. Also when landing it is easy to wash out if you are not centered on your board, but this is to be expected with a shorter soft board. Over all, this is my go to board if I need to change my attitude on the hill and learn some new tricks!
Hosoi Would be so Proud.

The Hammerhead is Rome's take on the classic Christian Hosoi Hammerhead skate shape, and they nailed it! This board has a truly skate-inspired feel, so if you're looking for a gnarly park board that will slay rails and hold its own off jumps, this is for you!
i want to get this board for this season...
i want to get this board for this season and i think i should ride a 151 i ride a 147 now but its alittle small...i only ride park should i get a 147 again...im lost -_-
The Hammerhead rides smaller than the size suggests and is very loose. If your current 147 is a little small for you, I think you could ride the 153 no problem.
