This Nitro Squash Snowboard is well-known for slaying deep powder and groomers. The swallowtail shape of the board gives it an incredible float in fresh snow. The progressive sidecuts and amazing Nitro camber also make this board one of the best choices for those who want to lay into some huge carves. Pull this board out for a day spent charging through fresh snow or when just looking for a good time on the groomers.

Key Features:

  • Progressive Sidecuts – This board is designed with a large sidecut radius in the front of the board that tapers down towards the tail.
  • All Terrain Flex – This board is equipped with the Nitro all-mountain flex pattern, giving it a smooth response that allows the rider to go all over the mountain with confidence.
  • Sintered Speed Formula HD Base – This base technology gives the board high-density and high durability, meaning higher speed on the snow and a longer-lasting board.

Andrew Forward owns this product
The Nitro Squash is the ultimate all-mountain carver regardless of the snow conditions. The most notable aspect of the Squash is its unrivaled edge hold due to the sidecut, directional shape and traditional camber. The edging is impressive whether at high speeds or slow cruiser carves, feeling very intuitive. The swallow tail is suprisingly supportive and poppy, more so than... Read more

I've had many great days on the Nitro Squash over the years since its release in 2018. I've ridden it in 3ft of blower pow at Powder Mountain in Utah and on spring groomer days at Mount Bachelor in Oregon. I love the squash for its camber, stiffness and locked in edge control for carving it weaves in and out... Read more

Good quality board

Posted on Dec 27, 2023
I bought this hoping to have a differennt experience than my previous Burton A-Deck board. From the reviews and testimonials, I was hoping for a different riding experience. I have only had the chance to ride it once in early season conditions and the experience has not wowed me. Solid ride and holds a great edge, but I am looking for snappier turns. So the final review is yet to come.

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.
