Johan Olofsson made a career of being a rider before his time, and he continues down that line by developing one-of-a-kind shapes for Venture that feed his powder habit. Johan brings invaluable perspective and experience to the Shape Shack program as he explores the far reaches of powsurfing and freeriding.
ID: Special-Release Splitsurfer
SHAPER: Johan Olofsson
Snowy Owl is perched right at the crux of splitboarding and powdersurfing. A third generation split powder surfer with reverse sidecut, a 33cm waist, “bat wing” tail, and generous helping of straight-line rocker, the Owl is the ideal deck for powder hounds who want to explore new terrain and get to the deepest snow. This board has no edges, and only inserts to mount touring brackets for the skin up. The touring bracket hole pattern is reversed to allow for easier skinning. Length: 156cm. Waist: 33cm. Small-batch run of 25. Artwork by Shanna Duncan. (Please note: base colors vary.)
STRAIGHT-LINE ROCKER Venture’s entire line features our proprietary Straight-Line Rocker technology. This special formula follows a linear path underfoot, with mellow rise starting just outside the inserts. Ventures offer the best of both worlds—a playful, surfy ride in soft snow, but plenty of control and edge grip when you need it.
