Name Droppin’—The Salomon Hillside and Äsmo with Wolfgang Nyvelt

For the Hillside Projekt 2019, Salomon offered that I could build my dream quiver consisting of three Boards. One is a 160 directional freestyle board and on the other end of the spectrum there is the Äsmo. In the middle is a 157 cm pow board with genes from both ends. With Äsmo´s, one of our main focuses is speed and control. The same approach was taken with the 157. We wanted an Äsmo with bindings, generate as much float as we can and still have as much control as possible. Popster Core profile and a custom sidecut makes for a stable, but still quick-turning board. The Äsmo has the same design features and is one of the true all-around shapes out of the Äsmo Quiver. -Wolfgang Nyvelt
