Features of Bamboo Side Wall
Supple flex (repulsion) can be obtained by the fibers peculiar to bamboo with tension, so sticky riding is possible.Edge grip is also improved by stepping on while maintaining flex.In addition, since the fibers pass through from the nose to the tail one by one, it is supple and has a strong return, and it is durable and has improved impact resistance.

Difference from other materials
Bamboo is not easily affected by temperature, so stable riding can be expected without affecting the performance of the board even under changes in temperature, especially at low temperatures.

Benefits of riding
Normally, it is recommended that the board used by beginners and intermediates be soft, but while the soft board is easy to handle, it is a little unsuitable for tricks that require repulsion due to its weak repulsive force.In addition, as the sliding speed increases, the plate flutters and the stability deteriorates.However, when the bamboo sidewall is installed, the bending of the bamboo supports it, so the softness of the board (ease of operation) is maintained, moderate repulsion is obtained, stability is improved, and repulsion is further improved. It will be easier to perform tricks that use.Even if you are an advanced player who can step on a hard board firmly, you can step deeper than the suppleness of bamboo, so you can do tricks that are one level higher than you can reach by just sliding at high speed.
