The 10 Best Snowboards of 2023-2024

By: Landon Harmon: Data Specialist | September 22, 2023


2024 is all about versatility, and this selection of snow-riding crafts is a testament to that. While not every one of these snowboards is a total quiver killer, they all have a good degree of range. Imagine a classic spring powder day at your local hill. It starts off cold and deep, and you’re making first tracks through the trees with your friends. Pretty soon though it's getting tracked, and you’re hunting side hits and bashing through chunder. After a quick lunch break the sun breaks through, and that park you didn’t even consider in the morning is looking mighty fun. With visualizations like that, choosing a snowboard just became that much easier.

New This Year:

This year unveils an exciting range of new models that are set to redefine the snowboarding experience. The Aeronaut, Deep Fake, and Candle Rain are bringing innovative designs that cater to a variety of riding styles. The Lib Rig, with its cutting-edge technology, promises to take on-mountain performance to new heights, while the Beyond Medals edition is all about melding style with functionality. These fresh additions to the snowboarding realm not only promise exhilarating rides but also ensure that every rider finds their perfect match to conquer the slopes. The 2024 snowboard lineup is indeed a testimony to how the sport is evolving, with brands pushing the envelope to deliver boards that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are performance-oriented.

CAPiTA Aeronaut Snowboard 2024

CAPiTA Aeronaut

Set the controls for the heart of the fun: the Starship Sidehit is all gassed up and ready to flow! The CAPiTA Aeronaut Snowboard is your ticket to riding like the Rocket Man, Arthur Longo. This is the resort maximizer, the gap discoverer, the euphoria explorer. It's made to accelerate across the flats, from one hidden popper to another, creating loft whether it's hardpacked or soft. A semi-throwback directional board with traditional camber and a progressive sidecut, the Aeronaut breaks out of the ho-hum numb with speed and pop as you assert full control over the resort. Flash mob in the statue garden, it's time to make that corduroy smoke.

Brad, Customer Care Representative: "This board takes me back to the Capita classics like the Stairmaster, except with modern enhancements, design, and tech. This board offers that traditional poppy and snappy camber, superior edge hold, and lightly responsive feel."

The Jones Stratos Snowboard is a modern day freeride icon with deep roots in the ancient art of freestyle.

Landon Harmon

Hey there! My name’s Landon Harmon, and I’m a Data Specialist at evo who assists our buyers for snowboards and snow accessories. I’m originally from Bellingham WA and had the privilege of growing up riding at Mt. Baker. I couldn’t get enough and taught snowboarding up there for 7 seasons, after which I moved to Seattle in 2015. I started working at evo that year in Customer Care and avoided the crowds by riding Stevens Pass on weekdays. There I gained more knowledge of the retail side of the industry and had my eyes set on the Merchandising team. I now get to work closely with what we are selling and support two amazing categories in our business. I recently moved to Portland and love getting to explore new mountains and take advantage of the longer season that Mt. Hood offers.
