Default freesurf snowboard circa 1993

greetings fellow rippers,

any of you old-timers out there ever seen or owned a freesurf snowboard? my
buddy and i rented a pair of these '92-93 season and ended up buying them
from the rental shop later that year. i forget which model my buddy got but
it had a real wood topsheet (early predecessor to today's arbors) and was a
159ish.. i now remember he snatched that one up quick, it was the only one
they had. he said he liked the looks of the truly natural wood. i ended up
with a 147 midoka. It's back and gray and has a round yellow stomp pad with
a black star cutout. the base is black with yellow 'warning sign' shapes on
each end...

anyway it turned out to be a great all around board...and i was just
wondering if anyone else remembers this company.

cheers,
-tlf

Hi there

The midoka was a intermediate level board from freesurf that only had
success in rental shops. Freesurf was an amazing brand, with very good
carving boards such as the Mustang 160 'assym' great freecarve board! and
the great Highlander that won many races in europe in the 93-95 years...

Freesurf lacked finances and the shapers ceased activity around 1997. They
are now reunited under the name Boheme and they make very good quality
Swallowtail boards, as well as good powder skis more info on
