Matt Designed this board with NW resort freeriding in mind. Pow in the morning, cat track hits and hardpack carving to the lift. Hiking and billy goat sketchy entry pow hunting in the afternoon. This board is ready for anything and the directional shape loves the new and broken snow.

  • AWESOME EVERYWHERE DIRECTIONAL RESORT FREERIDE
  • INTERMEDIATE TO PROS
  • THE BAKER BANKED SLALOM IS ALWAYS ON MATT’S MIND WHEN HE DESIGNS

Art by Todd Fischer

Matt a conçu cette board en pensant au freeride en station. Poudreuse fraîche le matin et carving sur neige dure jusqu’au télésiège puis rando à la recherche de nouvelles traces l’après midi. Cette board est prête à tout et son shape directionnel adore la neige fraîche ou damée.

  • FREERIDE DIRECTIONNELLE INCROYABLE SUR TOUS LES TERRAINS
  • RIDERS INTERMÉDIAIRES À PROS
  • LE BAKER BANKED SLALOM EST TOUJOURS DANS LA TÊTE DE MATT QUAND IL CONÇOIT UNE BOARD

Artiste Todd Fischer

Matt Cummins hat dieses Board fürs Freeriden innerhalb des Skigebiets entworfen. Tiefschnee am Morgen, Kanten springen am Nachmittag und Carven auf dem Weg zurück zum Luft. Dieses Brett ist allzeit zu allem bereit, egal ob frischer Neuschnee oder alter Harsch.

Matt diseñó esta tabla pensando en el freeride. Por la mañana, bajadas por nieve polvo seguidas de saltos por pistas y carvings marcados hasta el telesilla. Por la tarde, caminatas en busca de nieve polvo en los sitios más recónditos. Esta tabla está lista para todo con un shape direccional hambriento de nieve polvo.

    What size would you recommend for 5’10” 175lbs? Already have a TRS Horsepower but looking for a good powder option. Thanks!

  • If you’re just using this in powder you could go 161 for maximum float!
    But the 159 might be better if you’re planning on riding through a lot of trees or on groomers–it will be a little easier to maneuver.

  • Kiefer Hawley

    Would guys ever consider making this in a wide? Maybe a 159 that’s 10.5 or even 11? Maybe even with a wider cut under the feet? I have a size 12.5 foot, which makes it tough for me to get specific boards I’d like to try, I always get stuck with the same boards cause my feet never fit on anything else, you know what they say about big feet.. (wide boards, lol)

  • Hi Kiefer,
    I don’t think we have plans to make this in a wide–it’s more of a specialty board and not in the Spine of the Line.
    We do understand the demand for more wide board, though…keep an eye out for our 15/16 lineup.
    We’ll be updating the site soon, and we have more offerings for people with big feet!

  • Powkoa

    Is there any way to get a board, especially the la nina, with the older wider inserts five across each foot=( : : : : : : : : : : )? I have loved the MC line for years (~1994) and still want a board with that bolt pattern, but would really like to stay on a lib tech/gnu

  • Hi Powkoa,
    Unfortunately our warehouse isn’t set up to make modifications on individual snowboards.
    Though, I’m not certain if our stance range has changed much since the 1990’s, we used to do a 4×4 pattern whereas we now do a 2×4, so the inserts are spaced differently and you now have more options, but I’m not sure if the actual stance width is vastly different.

    But if you need those extra inserts, a qualified snowboard repair/tuning tech could definitely assist you with that!

  • Agent Womack

    After researching a new Mervin this year, I finally pulled the trigger on the La Nina, and honestly could not be more stoked! I ride Mt Bachelor in Oregon mostly, but will travel some each year (mostly pow trips). I went with the 159 (I’m 5’11 175) per a friends recommendation that this board rides much bigger. I wanted more of a “cruisie” surf style board, and the C1 BTX with ‘mini’ Mag seems to fit that the best out of the Lib line. My first trip up the mountain had received almost 40 inches in 72hrs. I was a little worried about the 159 size, but was all smiles after the first lap! This is hands down the funnest board I’ve ever rode. It was truly effortless to ride chest deep snow. I had friends on a 166 and 163 (Burton’s) that were pearling every run. Since then I’ve had two really fun packed-pow / groomer days, and the board was just as fun to ride on edge. I’m not much of a park guy anymore so I cant comment on performance there, but if your looking for a really fun-to-ride all mountain, all condition high performance deck, I would highly recommend the La Nina! Cheers!

  • David Gagnon

    Is this year’s La Nina banana up front like a skate banana or elliptical like an attack banana?

  • Agent Womack

    Elliptical upfront like the Attack Banana with mild rocker in the middle and traditional chamber under the back inserts.

  • Andy

    5’11 175 what is this? can you translete in meters?

  • Rob

    How does this board handle tree runs? I have a 11/12 Jamie 160 phoenix love everything about it it’s an incredible board just doesn’t hang in the trees. Looking for a board that will kill the powder in the trees, would this be it?

  • Agent Womack

    The 159 has been a straight boss in the trees! The deeper the snow the better.
