After years of testing and experimentation searching for the best and most durable materials for our snowboards’ topsheet, we have chosen walnut and ash, with a natural or stained look.
We carefully selected a historical and leading Italian company in the wood field, which can guarantee the best quality materials. All the wood for our snowboards is FSC certified, coming from authorized and certified forests. All the tints and colors that we use are also certified by stringent EU requirements; the wood is dyed through the whole of its thickness, for perfect homogeneity and color rendering.
Just like wood, every Sandy Shapes Snowboard is unique.
Every topsheet finish visible on this website is illustrative and will vary in the wood grain and shade, depending on the veneer used. Visit our Snowboard Shop Online to see how all our finishes look on the different snowboard models. And don’t forget that the Wood Evolution surface can also be customized through laser incision for an even more unique product!
Abonos™: Fossil Wood Topsheets
To our gamma of fine snowboard topsheets finish, we wanted to add a special variant: the Abonos™. Abonos™ is a fossil oak sourced from the rivers of the Sava area, at the northwest border of the Balkan Peninsula. Although it is obtained from underwater storage, thanks to its unique preservation process this kind of wood retains all its properties and at the same time features an increased hardness.
Abonos can be defined as a sub-fossil. It has been exposed to a prolonged storage under low oxygen levels, starting a genuine fossilization that remained incomplete. The most ancient trunks can be more than 8000 years old! Colors vary from golden to black but with ever-changing shades. Each trunk is not only a raw material but also a piece of history.
