The Brainstorm was developed by Manuel Diaz to be a freestyle powder machine. It’s twin in shape, directional in flex, and has slightly more rocker in front than back, all of which made it really playful and buoyant in pow. Added bits like carbon Xs underfoot and Kevlar and carbon blends in the tips helped reduce chatter and gave it a springy ride. The half moon tips work as a kickstand when you lean the board up and the shape also throws up a roost of pow at speed.
