J skis The Friend
Buy Now From J skis
For powder-hunters, J skis The Friend should be considered essential when traveling out of bounds. Designed in collaboration with Utah-based athlete Giray Dadali, this plank is specifically honed to surf through deep snow, keeping you afloat with a wide shovel and 117-millimeter waist width; the tight sidecut, however, ensures ridiculous edge-to-edge prowess in between storm skiing. Inside, balanced, durable construction is defined by a pure maple wood core and carbon stringers, which provide a stable ride and an extra bit of pop when you want to boost off that cliff. They say to never travel into the backcountry without a partner—don’t forget your J skis The Friend, too.
FREESKIER quick notes:
Boasting an extra-wide waist width and reliable core construction, The Friend answers the call for freestyle-focused skiers. Ideal for lift-accessed sidecountry.
