1-Trailblazer - Made in USA
PHNX Boards V3, the Trailblazer
One genuine, American-made, Trailblazer snurfer, with the double-patented "Board-2-Ski" design and "Rip-Cord Binding/Brake System". Seven pressed, laminated wood layers with clear hard maple face and back. Heat branded logos, clear finish, metal and plastic components. Hand-crafted, glued, sanded, and finished.
Rather than just replicate the original Snurfer, as other manufacturers have done, we completely re-imagined it.
The binding is an amazingly simple step-on, step-off system that doesn't require special boots. The "Slide-2-Switch" feature allows easy switching for regular or goofy riders. The binding automatically opens when you release the Rip-Cord in a fall or at the end of a run, and the safety brake stops the board from taking off down the hill. The double-layer platform adds stiffness and raises your rear foot to keep it from dragging. The Trailblazer has a snowboard shovel that becomes skis in the back, with a slight side-cut and a cutout in the middle that makes the perfect carrying handle.
This is a one-size-fits-all board that's easy to use for beginners but with features that allow advanced riders greater control and fun. 47 inches long x 8-3/4" tail x 8-1/4" mid x 9" front.
The cheapest Chinese-made Burton resort snowboard is $360 and you still need a lift ticket every time you board. For $179 you get an American-made snurfer and a lifetime pass to all of the terrain beyond resorts...and you support small business manufacturing.
Note: while the Rip-Cord Binding/Brake system gives you more control, like all snurfers it does not have the steel edges of a resort board, and as such is not designed for use at resorts or on hard-packed or icy slopes. Fortunately, since 99% of rideable terrain is beyond resorts, there is plenty of untracked and loose snow to be claimed.
