The Gril Master


About a week before Marko Grilc, aka Grilo, passed, he came to the table with an idea for a board that could cover the full spectrum of riding with the family. He dreamt of a deck that was mellow enough for turns with the kiddos but could also kick it into high gear when he wanted a rad dad lap. The result: The Gril Master, a testament to our dear friend, Marko Grilc.

What to expect: If the Gril Master were a car, it’d be a minivan with a Hemi engine. This directional camber all-mountain board puts a capital F in family fun. It’s the perfect board for a full day of riding with the kids or taking a breather and finding some solo side hits. This legacy board immortalizes Grilo’s love of riding, family, and exploring the mountains. Grilo Forever.


Key Tech:

  • Bend: Directional Camber
  • Shape: Freeride Directional
  • Terrain: All Mountain
  • Riding Level: Intermediate

The Short Stop


Don’t let the tail length fool you. The Short Stop stands out as an unconventional powder board designed for a nimble and quick surf-inspired riding style. It deviates from the norm by being both short and wide, boasting a stiffer and more responsive profile compared to the Pow Wrench. (Picture a perfect fusion of the Skipjack and Panhandler).

What to Expect: The Short Stop delivers a well-balanced feel from tip to tail, offering quick and agile performance, especially in tight conditions that lead to fresh powder. This semi-tailless shape has a relatively long running length in comparison to its overall length. To achieve a harmonious ride with this tailless shape, the stance is centered on the running length—a feature rarely seen in such a directional board.


Key Tech:

  • Bend: Directional Flat Top
  • Shape: All Mountain Directional
  • Terrain: All Mountain / Powder
  • Riding Level: Intermediate / Expert
