Bataleon Cameltoe Stewart

PREZZO: 459.00€

Bill Stewart needs no introduction to surfers, but most snowboarders have probably never heard of him, even though they should have. The legendary surfboard shaper is best known for pushing the envelope in modern longboard design. Stewart invented the 2+1 fin setup on a longboard, the Hydro Hull beveled rail, and co-invented the Future Fins System box. On top of that he’s seen as one of the best airbrush artists in surfing and one of the originators of the art.

What almost nobody knows is that back in 1981 Bill made an amazing snowboard. Combining technologies from surfboard shaping, ski manufacturing and waterski design he hand shaped a mind-blowing snowboard. The board featured sidecut, steel edges, a 360-degree swivel binding, and an advanced 3D base with upturned edges and channels. The construction itself was very experimental and like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Bill somehow married a wooden top to a foam core and a polyester resin laminated base to create a snowboard that was truly ahead of its time. Unfortunately, the local ski resort liftees didn’t have the same vision as Stewart, and wouldn’t allow him to test out his creation. So, after a couple of runs scraping down a hill, the snowboard was retired and Bill moved on to other inventions. It’s amazing that this board has never been ‘discovered’ or given the credit it deserves. Bataleon is very proud to be allowed to resurrect this awesome piece of snowboard history together with Bill Stewart.…
