Norse Thor Snowboard
Our flagship board for Norse is the Thor model, in honor of the Norse god of thunder. Feel the might of Thor and his powerful hammer Mjolnir when you have this board under your feet. Extremely limited quantities this season so pick yours up soon before it sells out!
The Norse Thor model has a profile with a flat shape between the bindings, and reverse camber/rocker extending past the bindings to the nose and tail. A flat camber between the bindings gives you excellent edge control, but still makes this a super fun all mountain freestyle board. The reverse camber at the tips gives this board an amazing freestyle feel, allows advanced riders to jib, butter, and nail all kinds of moves with a large amount of forgiveness, but makes it an amazingly easy board for beginners to learn how to snowboard.
A twin shape and symmetric flex patterns make this board ideal for a centered stance and riding switch, regular, goofy, or whatever your preference! The super strong core of the Thor model is made of Aspen and Maple woods, making this much more durable than a traditional poplar core.
Just like the Longships in the Viking era floated in the sea, our Thor model with its reverse camber shape floats with fury in deep powder. When our Norse god Ullr and goddess Skadi dump their magical powder on us you will have a snowboard that can shred through the best of conditions.
Thor, often also referred to as Donar in varying Germanic dialects was the most revered Norse god in Northern Europe as documented from the Roman historian Tacitus, all the way to the end of the Viking era. The pre-history origins of Thor are unclear, but it is likely he was revered for several thousand years before the conversion of Christianity in Northern Europe. Thor appealed to the common man as he was the defender of the land, the people, and the Aesir. Legends of lightning strikes and deafening thunder in storms are said to be Thor doing battle with his enemies. Thursday, is named after our god of thunder, also known as Thor'sday. Just like Thor was a god that appealed to virtually all of the Northman, our Thor snowboard model is an excellent choice for any snowboarder looking for a quality deck.
