Snowboard Slash Happy Place

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours randomly.

The Happy Place by Slash is a freestyle twin snowboard with a small section of camber between the feet and rockers running through the tips. This is the perfect recipe for getting the ultimate freestyle toy. The board feels incredibly playful and comes with a poppy woodcore ensuring liveliness and great ollies. If you want to bring more fun into your days, this board is a safe bet. 

What can the Slash Happy Place snowboard do? 

If you wonder what is a playful freestyle board, the Happy Place is the definition of it. Have fun anywhere on the mountain, backcountry, piste, park, anywhere, literally. The board is close to making magic. Featuring a twin shape, freestylers can work on their switch technique on a regular basis and hone their park technique easily. But they can also mess around the pistes, playing and working on their press and butters or bombing groomers. Despite a mellow and playful flex the board remains stable and can deal with speed pretty easily. It’s also a nicely designed powder board, the rockers enhance floatation and allows you to explore the backcountry with a smile on your face. The Happy Place is a serious contender for the top spot of the most playful board we’ve ever tested. 

Who is the Slash Happy Place snowboard designed for? 

We strongly recommend this playful board to intermediate and advanced riders who want the ultimate toy for having fun all over the mountain. It does everything easily and makes it feel nice. Note that the board has a strong bias towards freestyle.

Structure - Construction

  • Biaxial Fiberglass  :

    Weaved biaxial fiberglass are positioned at 0°/90° for more torsional flex. Great performance at carving or park.

  • Pop Core  :

    Core designed for freestyle use. Made of poplar wood, with a higher density in the tips in order to give the board more reactivity.

  • Sweet Spot  :

    2 cross-shaped carbon fibers placed from the contact point of the nose and tail to the middle of the inserts. This configuration increases POP and strength, bringing more play into your riding.

Shape - Sidecuts

  • Progressive Sidecut  :

    The discussion of sidecut is simple, it makes the board turn. Now a step ahead we bring you progressive sidecut which is really benefital with hybrid cambers as the contact points of the board become more relevant for smooth turns.

Rocker - Camber

  • CamRock  :

    The CamRock will give you everything you need for your backcountry line. There is more rocker in the nose to add float and improved maneuverability, matched with a smaller amount of camber under foot to keep your snowboard responsive. A small amount of rocker in the tail will give you stability and maneuverability.

Other

  • Belt Finish  :

    Belt Finish gets your base optimized before we fully wax the board.

  • Factory Wax  :

    Every snowboard is waxed with our high grade Italian made wax to ensure you’ll be the fastest one down the hill.

  • Sintered base  :

    Very good wax absorbtion. Resists against friction. High longevity.

  • Ultimate Traction  :

    By strategically positioning five bumps along the board’s effective edges instead of using a more conventional serration, the reactivity is enhanced in all conditions. As a result, you will have more control of your board and way more fun!
