2016 Stewart Camel Toe

Bill Stewart needs no introduction to surfers, but most snowboarders have probably never heard of him, even though they should have. The legendary surfboard shaper is best known for pushing the envelope in modern longboard design. Stewart invented the 2+1 fin setup on a longboard, the Hydro Hull beveled rail, and co-invented the Future Fins System box. On top of that he’s seen as one of the best airbrush artists in surfing and one of the originators of the art.

What almost nobody knows is that back in 1981 Bill made an amazing snowboard. Combining technologies from surfboard shaping, ski manufacturing and waterski design he hand shaped a mind-blowing snowboard. The board featured sidecut, steel edges, a 360-degree swivel binding, and an advanced 3D base with upturned edges and channels. The construction itself was very experimental and like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Bill somehow married a wooden top to a foam core and a polyester resin laminated base to create a snowboard that was truly ahead of its time. Unfortunately, the local ski resort liftees didn’t have the same vision as Stewart, and wouldn’t allow him to test out his creation. So, after a couple of runs scraping down a hill, the snowboard was retired and Bill moved on to other inventions.

It’s amazing that this board has never been ‘discovered’ or given the credit it deserves. We are very proud to be allowed to resurrect this awesome piece of snowboard history together with Bill Stewart....

INGREDIENTS

POW

POW TBT is TBT on steroids, with everything maxed out to get that feeling of surfing powder. The same narrow centre flat base width as for FREERIDE TBT, but with both the TBT and the stance set way back. Insane uplift angles on the nose sidebases means that you float effortlessly no matter how deep it gets.

PRECISE

The 4x2/20 pattern allows you to attach your bindings with scientific precision.

EXTRUDED

Easy to repair and takes a beating! Low maintenance and still slides well with irregular waxing, not that we are condoning anything other than a militant waxing regime.

REACTOR

Poplar core with hardwood reinforcements along the sidewalls. The hardwood along the edges equalizes the force of the turn along the full contact edge, making it less twitchy on harder snow and reinforcing the boards stiffness.

BIAX

Bi-ax laminates over and under the wood core include fibreglass layers aligned in two directions at 45 degrees to the edges. This creates an easy and forgiving flex, which allows you to really feel the terrain.

I bought this board last season and it really is a game changer for me, love the surfy feel and turns all slopes into pure fun. I thought it would suck a bit on pistes but it still puts a smile on my face! In icy conditions it’s no where near as good as my old all mountain directional, which is no great surprise but it’s still useable. Get in the powder though and life becomes perfect, so easy to ride and incredibly forgiving. Bliss!

Absolutely amazing!! So much fun. I own a goliath and a funkink and this camel toe is a ridiculous good time. So much fun. So surfy and playfully! I love this board. If you haven't tried one, this should definitely be added to your quiver. Floats in power like nothing else

Rob Schroter

What can I say.. it carves tike a train, does powder effortless and still makes you smile while riding switch....

Tim Symes

Bought mid-way through last seasons epic conditions in the PNW. I can't stop smiling when riding this board. Got it for blower days but this thing rips on the hard pack too. Just wish I'd had it since November.

This is the first year I tried riding on the Camel Toe. This board is all about happyness. I took it in 53, small but really playful. It turns and carves so quickly it is the perfect match for me. Use it on the slopes, through the park with boardslides and backflips or just kill your friends throughout the powder. Not only technical but also a beauty. What more can I say!! Just loving it :D

Surf like a dream in 2 meters of fresh powder...I LOVE my Camel Toe! And if you are planning a 50/50 day both on powder and piste, don't worry about it, you don't need 2 boards, the Camel Toe runs and carve hard also on piste!

So glad I got The Camel T. No more lactic acid in my back leg. It's one of a kind in the deep and you can ride flater parts of the mountain. It's very close to a surfboard feel. The pronounced tbt produces a super smooth and easy ride.

I ride mt baker about 50 to 75 days a season, the camel toe was my board of choice for powder days over a foot of fresh. I have now been riding the Omni on all of the good days and I absolutely love it. I rode it in 14" a couple weeks ago and I was completely amazed all over again, once you ride directional in deep powder its hard going back. TBT floats in powder better than a flat board with whatever camber rocker combo you please, everyone must try for themselves. Coming from l#bt@#$%s these boards are top quality. Must Recommend.

Hello, I am from Korea. The Camel Toe is amazing.
