Different by Design
Seamless urethane sidewalls fuse to our cores to create the most durable and damp ride available - featured on the Enduro Series decks.
Cardiff Enduro cores feature a poplar-paulownia construction with vertical layers of carbon fiber in-between. This simple detail helps the core retain its shape for years.
Are located under foot in the binding area to transfer rider input directly to the edges - featured on all solid models.
On both the Enduro and Pro Carbon splitboards we use a scratch resistant dimpled topsheet for maximum performance and protection.
Reverse sidecut bumps aligned with the bindings add grip to tighter sidecut radii.
All of our boards have poplar stringer backed sidewalls. This reinforces the edge while protecting the lightweight cores.
Top Sheet Tech
On both the Solid Enduro and Pro Carbon decks we use a unique process of printing our graphics on a urethane topsheet which allow us to reveal the construction of the boards. This is then topped with a water-based lacquer.
Cardiff creates wider-wasted high performance boards that will accommodate larger boot sizes without toe drag... you're welcome.
Two layers of triaxial fiberglass above and below the core.
Black graphite infused sintered base for maximized glide and easy repair.
Our solid shapes are backcountry-inspired but resort-tuned—meaning all our solids have been shaped and adapted to ride on groomed snow.
Shape and Camber
FLOATilla shorter length but more float
RADIcAL SIDECUT - Long & stable blend of radial & progressive
The patent-pending Cardiff HALFcamber places camber wher it is absolutely necessary and gradual rocker everywhere else. The result is maximum glide, maneuverability and edge control.
PIVOT 2.0 is two points of base contact. One under or in front of your front foot and on behind the back foot. The location of that contact relative to your foot position makes the board nimble and stable.
PIVOT 3.0 is three points of base contact. The first and second are the same as 2.0 but the third is between the feet. It goes relatively unnoticed until you are in softer snow and it creates a central pivot between your legs. It makes it easier for a longer effective edge to be more nimble.
BOUNDARY BUILD: All Abilities
A versatile build that is extremely damp, powerful, durable, and affordable. Carbon fiber stringers are laid beneath a Poplar and Paulownia core. Poplar for snap and pop. Paulownia for dampness and lightweight. Carbon fiber for camber retention. Triaxial fiberglass for a damp and durable torsional and longitudinal pop. Fully wrapped Uni-wall for durability and dampness. For glide, we implement a sintered base for speed and durability. On the solids, we finish with a matte direct printed graphic.
ENDURO BUILD: Intermediate to Expert
The perfect balance of performance, durability, weight, and dampness. Vertically laminated carbon fiber is painstakingly laid up with thin alternating layers of poplar and paulownia. Poplar for snap and pop. Paulownia for dampness and lightweight. Carbon fiber for camber retention. On the solids, we use cross-directional launch pads in the binding area to transfer rider forces more efficiently to the edges. Triaxial fiberglass for a damp and durable torsional and longitudinal pop. Fully wrapped Uni-wall for durability and dampness. For glide, we use one of the fastest bases on the market, our sintered race base + graphite for speed and durability. On the solids, we finish with a water-based lacquer for gorgeous graphics. On the splits we use scratch-resistant, ice shedding top sheets.
PRO CARBON BUILD: Intermediate to Expert
Snowboarding’s finest construction. For the fastest ascenders and those spending long days in the backcountry where every ounce matters… this is your build. Where weight and responsiveness are given priority. Vertically laminated titanal is painstakingly laid up with thin alternating layers of poplar and paulownia. Poplar for snap and pop. Paulownia for dampness and lightweight. Titanal to add dampness to help balance the responsiveness and snap of the full carbon fiber build. Fully wrapped Uni-wall for durability and dampness. For glide, we use one of the fastest bases on the market, our sintered race base + graphite for speed and durability. On the solids, we finish with a water-based lacquer for gorgeous graphics. On the splits we use scratch-resistant, ice shedding top sheets.
Second-to-none in shape and finish. Absolutely a work of art. The blue and graphic on the tail is hangable art. I’ll carry my board in the lift line. Give me a huge bubble. Don’t even get your skis anywhere near my ride I’m keeping this one “nice”.

POWGODA - Frickin’ rad board. The shape, the camber profile, the flex, even the graphics were all in line with what I look for in a board. This was easily my favorite of the test so far. Thank you, Cardiff!

POWGODA - Mind-blowing! My one favorite board of the PowWow (Jackson Hole Shaper Summit).
