Top 5 Pro Snowboards That Are New For The 2023 – 2024 Season

With the new snowboard season right around the corner, we wanted to spotlight some new pro models that will be in demand this year. Each board has their own unique design that caters to each pro’s riding style. Check out more details below and let us know, which one speaks to you.

Arbor Candle Rain – Pat Moore Pro Model

Pat Moore recently joined the Arbor crew and he quickly announced his pro model called the “Candle Rain.” Pat Moore’s unique design philosophy and aesthetic light the way to unlocking freestyle potential. Featuring dual-radius nose and tail ramping, the Rain offers a powerful ride with less hang up and the perfect powder float. Pat’s parabolic camber, directional twin, board of choice tastefully blends the best of traditional snowboard design and the state of the art for the shining addition to your quiver.


Bataleon Beyond Medals – Tor Lundstrom Pro Model

Bataleon has taken their ongoing collaboration with Beyond Medals to a new level for this season. Taking cues from the Goliath and Whatever, they've designed a completely new board with an elongated nose and squared-off tail. This fresh shape was developed together with Tor Lundström to best fit his fast aggressive riding style. This is a serious tool no matter the conditions.


CAPiTA Aeronaut – Arthur Longo Pro Model

The CAPiTA Aeronaut Snowboard is your ticket to riding like the Rocket Man, Arthur Longo. This is the resort maximizer, the gap discoverer, the euphoria explorer. Its made to accelerate across the flats, from one hidden popper to another, creating loft whether it's hardpacked or soft. A semi-throwback directional board with traditional camber and a progressive sidecut, the Aeronaut breaks out of the ho-hum numb with speed and pop, as you assert full control over the resort. Flash mob in the statue garden, it's time to make that corduroy smoke.

Lib Tech Rig – Austen Sweetin Pro Model

The Lib Rig by Austen Sweetin is a full sized floaty but streamlined nose and a switch functional tail with a deep carving sidecut, wider waist width and mild taper, all sitting on a no nonsense power chassis, plus a rugged speedy knifecut sintered base. Austen topped it off with some of his own understated visually sweet and easy graphics in bright orange on black. Tear up the whole mountain with this sweet rig.


Nitro Alternator – Jared Elston Pro Model

An all-mountain board that seamlessly blends features of several other Nitro classics, the Nitro Alternator Snowboard is a fresh design for those equally interested in hiking the backcountry gates and railing inbounds. A moderately stiff flex and full camber profile give the Alternator tons of pop and the power to drive from turn to turn, even in challenging snow conditions.

“When designing the shape for the Alternator, Griff and I wanted to make the most capable backcountry freestyle board we could. Essentially we wanted to make a little wider Team Pro that performed better on deep days. The early rise on the nose floats effortlessly, while the high kick in the tail allows for a less strenuous switch powder ride. I recommend this board to anyone looking for a playful board that wants to boost side hits, rail turns, or blast into a soft landing.”
