The Nitro Squash swallowtail snowboard floats like a boat, carves like dream and is able to fly like a bird. The Squash has been received so well since its inception that it has already won the prestigious TWS Good Wood Award and become the number one board in our Team Riders Quiver.
The award winning beauty will provide you more fun on pow days & sunny groomer days than any other board you have ever ridden before. The Squash snowboard specializes in all sorts of conditions by prioritizing float through neck deep pow and offering a perfect blend of a Progressive Sidecut and Trüe Camber so you can lay into carves like you do it for a living. This Tapered Swallowtail Shaped powerhouse will allow you to charge with finesse through the choppiest conditions, while the Sintered Speed Formula HD Base will allow you to get out of the flats with ease. If you are looking for a snowboard to have fun on during the deepest of days or the crappiest of days do like most of the Nitro Team does - Squash it!

Camber: True - TRÜE CAMBER is good old standard camber, which provides the stability, and pop many shreds can ́t live without. The amount of snap and support you get from a cambered board is unrivalled by any other camber design. Our TRÜE CAMBER varies between board models because each board is specifically designed for a certain terrain or type of riding, for example the TRÜE CAMBER in our Pantera has a larger height for maximum response, while the TRÜE CAMBER in our freestyle boards are lower to provide you with a more freestyle friendly flex, without losing the support and trust you need for stomping landings. Camber is Camber there is no point in over complicating it!
