The rome shank is quite possibly one of the craziest boards I have ever ridden. As you will have spotted the sizes available are a little on the short side compared to many other boards. But don’t let the shortness put you off or think that it’s a kids board. You are suppose to ride this board 8 to 10cm shorter than your normal length. This board has Romes new 3D diamond tip tail shape a twist on the rocker shape that blends the good bits of bataleon triple base and flat camber to give you a board that is super fun catch free but not so loose it scares the sh*t out of you. Unlike other spoon ended boards the shank also holds up well on the ice. Ok so at this length this is never going to be a powder weapon but take it to the park or dome and you can not help but be blown away by this board. Unlike many jib boards, the shank is also lots of fun on the way to and from the park, a real all mountain jibber. So if you are looking for something a bit different something that you wont see every other tom, dick and harry on this is the board for you. You could also consider the ENDEAVOUR COLOUR, SALOMON SALOMONDA, RIDE CRUSH OR THE ROME POSTER MAINIA but to be honest the shank is as good as it gets.
