Stepchild Snowboards 2011

StepChild is a small hardcore snowboard company with orifices in Vancouver, Canada and Laguna Beach, California. The company employees are all snow- boarders that ride (although not that well) as much as possible. StepChild passionately puts the riding experience ahead of the fashion bullshit that seems to be polluting snowboarding the most these days. Stepchild is just a bunch of dirts that have been in business now for 10 years... “Those guys are a bunch of assholes!”- Stian Solberg (ex-team rider).

Stepchild Jib Stick Snowboard

The Jib Stick is here to stay. This is the third year of the Jib Stick and its one of the most sought after twin boards in Stepchild's line. Riders in general ride a smaller length board for jibbing and with this board design they kept the width but decreased length- its not like your feet shrink when you ride a shorter board. Why do so many board companies decrease the board width when they make a shorter Jib Board? The Jib Stick comes with a tip to tail poplar/beech wood core. The poplar wood is flexibility and the beech wood is for strength. This board has the Trojan Rubber sidewalls for impact absorption. The jibsick also comes available with or without RETT. New for this year they added a 144 with 4mm of Rocker. This is the board of choice for park and rail riders. It has a stable core profile for flinging off jumps as well. The base is a smooth belt finish.
