Reviewer Alex

"Easy float, let me hike, surf and play any terrain. I don't like a powder board to be too flexible, because I want to lay some trenches on the groomers too. When the snow starts falling in the evening, I get happily nervous for the next day."

Powder board with allround quality


The Amplid Surfari (tested at 161 cm length, new in 2018) is such a pleasant and good freeride snowboard that it is fantastic to ride it all day. In powder it floats magnificent and maneuvers with such ease that you can focus on the terrain. The Surfari is easy to control and serious enough at the same time. It feels like a boardercross board that you throw around anywhere but then a lot easier and more forgiving. It has enough power in it to be responsive. And that same power you can use to ride edges on groomers. Especially short carve turns are great fun with the Amplid Surfari. This freeride board has allround quality and gets 4.5 stars from me.

Fish tail power

Amplid Surfari has a rather short fish tail. This makes that it has good floatation naturally as the tail sinks away. Just stay balanced and steer the Surfari where you want it to surf. Another benefit from the fish tail is the power it gives when carving short on pistes. It gives the Surfari a nice bite at the end of the turn. The torsional stiffness is luckily sufficient to hold the line. Sufficient as it is not extreme which is logical. This makes also that switching to drifting goes smoothly. All together is the Amplid Surfari a well-balanced playful freeride snowboard.

Amplid about the Surfari

"The Backcountry Chamelon
With its heavy taper, retro tail and Crust Buster 3D nose shaping the Surfari is the deep snow specialist in the Centrifugal Collection. Its pow-centric geometry boosts floatation and agility, but despite its unambiguous appearance, the Surfari rips on packed snow conditions too.
By placing Antiphase Technology in the Surfari's low-rising nose, Amplid can keep chatter, which normally plagues rocker noses, to a minimum.
Unaffected by the lumps and bumps and armed with a relaxed 9m sidecut, the Surfari is truly capable of carving turns anywhere.
To label the Surfari a pow board is totally unfair, because no matter if the snow conditions are chest deep blower or manmade groomers, you'll relish every turn you rail on the Surfari!"
, says Amplid.
