These sharp-looking sticks with isosceles tips have all the angles covered. Whether you want to get some in the glades on Japan’s North Island, step up on a down-flat-down in Helsinki, ride three feet of fresh on Four Pines at Jackson Hole, or go on a one-footing tangent while summertime shredding at Mt. Hood, you should make a point of checking out a diamond-tip deck at your local shop.
