Whistler has had its fair share of world class riders film their video sections on Blackcomb and Whistler Mountain’s legendary terrain. The impressive terrain on offer, enormous winter snowfalls and vast and relatively accessible sled lands make it a mecca for all mountain freestylers. With this in mind, Whistler’s snowboard factory Prior created the AMF to arm locals with the perfect weapon for the job in hand. With camber between the feet and early rise tips, the AMF offers the stability of a cambered board with the all conditions versatility and powder float or a rockered snowboard.
The 2011 AMF (All Mountain Freestyle) is a one board quiver that kills it absolutely everywhere. The key to this board’s versatility is the rockered tip and tail combined with a flatter camber at the waist that allows float in the pow, effortless edge-to-edge transition yet still carves on icy, hard pack conditions without washing out.
Rip the pow, slay the park, ride anywhere – the AMF is a do-it-all machine.
