Describe the mission, vision, goals, and aspirations of your company.
The mission of this company is to offer the powsurf experience to every one and not leave the resorts we all grew up riding behind. not everyone can afford Helicopter days, Cat days or afford to own a snowmobile. snowboarding needs a new revision in its design to allow people more freedom of movement and the ability to keep snowboarding alive through evolution. After all the snowsurf experience is not just in powder. its on our resorts too and this board allows access to all those conditions. it can grant access to anyone no matter the age, ability or income level. from local hills in the cities to mountains and everything in between.
