Academy Snowboards 2022 Graduate Series Traditional Camber Directional Twin All Mountain Snowboard

On designing the Graduate snowboard, Chad Otterstrom said, "I designed the graduate series with the idea of building a board that will ride everything jumps, lines, pow and pipe. The camber profile with early rise nose allows you to generate speed quickly, hold an edge, and turn on a dime. It's an aggressive profile and flex, but you have complete control over this snowboard when you ride it and that's what I love about it."
