Test Results


The Fantastica from Sandy Shapes was fun to ride. The nose is powerful and withstands powerful riding from heavyweight riders. Turn initiation is a bit easier compared to the Konvoi Nevado and Rossignol Sashimi, but the edge hold is not as good with heavier loads, especially in harder conditions. In very hard conditions, the Fantastica felt less cushioned than other boards. The nose started to vibrate. On the ascent, the board is fine, as most boards are. It also floats up nicely while skinning, unfortunately we noticed a lot of snow sticking to the top sheet. There are certainly boards we have tested that have better top sheets in terms of this parameter.

After we tested the Virtuosa Split from Mr. Sandy a few years ago and it surprisingly won our Splitboarding.eu Editors Selection, it was time to get the Fantastico under our feet.
