The Original Butter Board

The Gilson Flat-to-Rocker Snowboard is a widespread crowd favorite, pushing the limits of progression since 2015. Known to most as the "Duel" or "Butter Board," this snowboard has staked its ground as the most butterable snowboard on the market.

The Gilson Flat-to-Rocker has also earned credibility amongst snowboarders actively working to progress their riding, largely for the way the board accelerates progression and stays with you straight through expert level

The same features that make this board the ultimate butter board also make it the ultimate board for progression, allowing new and intermediate riders to become experts faster. The blunted tip and tail increase ease of agility, the flat-to-rocker profile lends forgiveness, and the Gilson Edge decreases painful hangups and makes edge-to-edge transitions smoother and more intuitive

There are experts in the Gilson Family who swear by the Duel, saying they'll never ride another snowboard until the day they die. Whether you're new to the sport, looking to level up in the park, or a total expert pushing your limits, the Gilson Flat-to-Rocker will be riding shotgun and upping your game the whole way


Paint it Black.

Artist Josh Riggan spent years painting it black. The things we sacrifice to make ends meet.

Over the last decade, Josh woke up each morning before the sun and rolled into work. As a lifelong painter, he had been assigned to the paint booth in a large manufacturing facility. He was given his one-color palette and over the years he grew to the top. Josh became the master of painting manufactured components, running teams of people all equipped with just one color. Being good at your job is not always the same as fulfilling your purpose. At night, after countless gallons of homogenous paint had passed across his brush, Josh kept painting. At night, his brush took on color and meaning.

1 hour southeast of Gilson Snow, Josh silently refined his skills over the years. We are honored and humbled to release Josh’s latest work.

Introducing the Josh Riggan Mastodon.

With over 100 hours of meticulous detail and brushwork, the Mastodon brings forth a myriad of color and meaning, symbolizing freedom of expression and escape to the great outdoors.

#1 Snowboard to accelerate your progression. A rider favorite since 2015.
