Story

A pure expression of freeride performance, the Cardiff Bonsai was designed around the desire for a simple and streamlined board that could handle it all—it has raced in boarder cross events, carves spring corn, and offers incredible performance in deep conditions. The Bonsai features Cardiff’s FLOATilla construction, which combines a big, wide nose with the gradual rocker of HALFcamber™ to create a shorter board with increased float. Original artwork by Sam Bawden features the gnarled and resilient bristlecone pines found along the high ridgelines of Cardiff’s home Wasatch Range—trees that experience and endure an incredible range of winter conditions.

HALFcamber™

The CARDIFF HALFcamber™ places camber where it is absolutely necessary and gradual rocker everywhere else. The result is maximum glide, maneuverability, and edge control.

PERFECTpivot™

Every Cardiff snowboard is uniquely designed to match the shape to the camber - resulting in a new standard of performance.

FLOATilla™

Big float, small board: by placing more surface area under foot and a gradual nose rocker the patent-pending HALFcamber™ allows us to create shorter boards with more float.

UNIwall + BOARDERpatrol

Seamless urethane sidewalls fuse to our cores to create the most durable and damp ride available - featured on the Enduro Series decks. All of our boards have poplar stringer backed sidewalls. This reinforces the edge while protecting the lightweight cores.
