Questions answered by IPP Founder Peter Harvieux
What are the biggest forces shaping the changes and developments you've made to your boards?
Well I'd say less is more. In our region riders are sacrificing edge control and snap for trends. We're building boards that we believe allow riders to get the most of their experience on hill. Triaxe and Proper Profile add a new dimension to our cambered boards something we really enjoy. I guess we're working to blend loose and snappy to "premium medium".
To what degree are you emphasizing camber shape and core profiles in your lineup?
Ahah right! This is exactly our take. Profiling our cores to allow our stronger triaxe to be manipulated by the riders. By blending the two it allows for optimum riding experience I believe.
Are you cooking up any new materials or construction techniques?
I think forward thinking is great, but having been around on snow for nearly three decades on a multitude of products, I've found that some over design. While these construction and materials sound sexy they may just be a one night stand. I mean it's like a home build to spec or buy a house in a subdivision. These materials might do the same thing but one's not going to live the though the tornado.
What themes are you seeing for graphics?
We're just going to focus on our stuff. I'm sure big marketing/graphic firms are on to: hand drawn blah, blah. At the end of the day there are so many talented designers most boards are going to look really interesting. But some don't...
