KORUA was born from a group of friends, who happened to be traveling snowboard nerds in our 30’s. On a trip to Japan in 2012 they witnessed the country's thriving snow-surf culture and their specifically “built for deep powder” boards. This spoke to their r individual riding styles and interests. So when the opportunity arose to start their own brand, it was clear that the focus would lie on making boards that were easy-to-ride in their home mountains — the Alps, and that would turn exceptionally well. At the core of every KORUA board, is a sidecut that allows you to carve like no others on hard groomers, and a shape that lets you float through powder with ease. They truly are great all-round snowboards.

SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF SNOWBOARDS

The Pencil is a classic line favorite and a true all-round shape, built for effortless turns in all types of snow conditions. It’s designed for those riders who are looking for the one board that does it all. Over the years it has steadily held its place as a go-to-shape in our line, and has withstood the test (and turns) of time.

PERSONALITY

The slight swallowtail offers playfulness out the back while still providing the stability and torsion necessary for solid edge-hold. The taper makes it reactive, easy to set on edge, and feel shorter than it appears. The pointy nose maintains speed when coming out of powder turns and keeps the spray out of your face.

THE DETAILS

The Pencil features our FLOAT CAMBER, which curves into a rocker shape in the nose. This profile helps you stay on top in deep powder while maintaining speed throughout the turn. The camber under-foot offers grip and stability on hard-pack and in variable conditions, while the early rise in the nose allows for an easy initiation of turns.
