With a low profile Parabolic Rocker, butter-inducing Flathead Tips, and a full wood core, the Westmark Rocker Snowboard is meant to hit big boy features and really let you press things out without washing out. Toss in 360° rails and a super fast sintered base, and you’ll get a board that can hang all season long — no matter how much abuse you inflict.

Product Details

Rocker Type

The System Rocker – This rocker deck’s design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a snowboard’s outside contact points. In translation, riders get a seamless turn initiation, better float in powder, and more fluid spins and slides.

Parabolic Rocker – The System utilizes rocker profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail of a snowboard. This creates low, more effective profiles and ensures the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required: higher speeds, loaded turns, and bigger landings.


Medium Flex – The most versatile flex because it is equally responsive and friendly giving riders peak performance all over the mountain.


True Twin – Symmetrical in all aspects, true twin boards are ideal for freestyle riding environments.

Flathead Tips – Provides more surface area for butter, ollies, and nollies.

Grip Tech Sidecut – Grip Tech is a tri-radial sidecut design that is not blended. Shaping intersections have been transformed into heel and toe contact points that provide a direct, more ergonomic way to grip snow. Grip Tech effectively moves a board’s primary interface with the snow underfoot, delivering designs that don’t lose performance as the leading sections of the effective edges are lifted from the snow.


Single Malt Core – Arbor’s standard wood core, made from 100% sustainably grown poplar for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.


Biax Glassing – A biax over biax lay-up that’s designed for park and street-inspired all mountain riding. Also creates a good platform for learning.


360° Rails – Fully wrapped sidewall that eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.


Sintered Base – A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.


Ash Power Ply – The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.
