Power predator in both directions. Travis took his Orca learnings and merged them with his elite high performance snowboard world freestyle tour dreams to come up with this supreme Orca freestyle evolution. The long floaty Orca nose loves pow. A directional C2 contour rips resort, trenches hardpack carves and blasts off mountainous side hits. A brand new long floaty switch friendly power kink tail rides short powerful and poppy on hardpack but oats like a dream through switch freestyle takeoffs and landings. The beloved Orca merges with magical T. Rice Pro and manifests a golden power beast.
VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 1-3 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD.

“The tail that we have created here works as good as some powder board noses! I designed this board specifically for the Natural Selection and the demands that back country freestyle has on board design. The graphic couldn’t be more on point as an energy initiator. This board vibrates too high for an artistic noun, so Andrew Schultz straight up painted the vibe. This board wants to levitate. Working with Schultz after almost a 10 year hiatus since I last had the pleasure of working with him, I can not wait to get this thing under my feet, and plan to spend the majority of my winter on this board! ZZzzaaap!” - Travis Rice

Profile: Hybrid Camber
The perfect rocker/camber hybrid. Shortened rocker between inserts and camber underfoot with rockered tip/tail for control/precision/float.
Central rocker builds in carve, edge hold, and float. Cambers builds in stability and control. Full contact and control in all conditions.
Shape: Directional Tapered
Directional tapered boards excel in a pure mountain environment.
A directional shape with a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail get taken to the next level with a tapering design—which sees a wider nose tapering into a narrower tail. The advantages are two-fold: this shape not only sees mega-enhanced floatation with a surfy feel in deep powder, it also creates a faster turning snowboard which is noticeably more nimble and great for tree riding.
