The Shorty is one of those boards that one gets adapted to very easily. Directional shape with low camber and rockered nose and tail make the Shorty a fun and easy to carve board. One of the smoothest and forgiving boards of the test.
Note the long nose to get superior floatability on powder days. Even though the Shorty might have been developed for powder riding, it performs very good when carving on hardpack or groomers thanks to its torsional stiffness with its carbon stringers. All in all an all-round board for any kind of terrain when conditions are far from perfect.
