At Powfinder we live snowboarding. Our goal is to make the best snowboards possible, made of the best materials available. Every snowboard we design is thoroughly tested in the European Alps. All our Powfinder are constructed according to the following standards.
All our boards are bamboo based. Bamboo is a strong and environmental friendly material. It gives our Powfinder Snowboards an unique stability and liveliness not found in any other material. Although the process to make bamboo fit our cores is rather expensive we are convinced by its supreme characteristics. Bamboo offers a smoother ride at higher speeds, it lets you land the cliffs you drop much easier and it will give you just that extra grip you need at your high speed carves.
Every Powfinder is made out of a carefully handcrafted, full-length, farmed and sustainably produced wood core. Each core is custom built and CNC shaped for a specific model and size. This guarantees the tolerance, flex, and finish quality of every Powfinder snowboard released.
SURFR. core: 8 Bamboo stringers running from tip to tail laminated with poplar for lightweight, durability and liveliness.
Signature core: 10 Bamboo stringers running from tip to tail laminated with poplar for extra pop, more durability and energetic liveliness.
Limited core: 10 Bamboo stringers running from tip to tail laminated with a blend of paulownia and poplar. Super lightweight combined with an outstanding bamboo flex.
Split core: 8 Bamboo stringers running from tip to tail positioned in the pocket of the sidecut for better edge response and turn power. Laminated with a blend of paulownia and poplar. Super lightweight combined with an outstanding bamboo flex.
Powfinder snowboards are equipped with some of the most expensive, highest quality, durable and fastest sintered bases around. A sintered base has a higher molecular weight that provides added durability, speed and maximum wax absorption. Our bases are made to absorb wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting. Wax up!
All our shapes are finished with full wrap metal edges. From the tip, all around our swallowtail and back, this metal edge prevents damage caused by impact and offers a maximum protection. Our steel edges are heat treated to Rockwell 48 standards for better impact resistance.

We use rocker in the nose and camber under the foot to mix the best of both worlds. The nose-rocker prevents nosedives when it gets deep, while the camber gives the board extra side bite and energy once the board is ridden on the edges. The tail rocker also allows you to kick in some switch riding or 180 turns. Our design offers maximum maneuverability, reduces resistance and makes your board float better.
