The surface of Venus burns at a searing 900 degrees Fahrenheit. That's hot enough to melt lead, and you can definitely leave the jacket in the car on a day trip. It may explain why the Nidecker Venus Snowboard is so good. This board rides like a red hot Swiss Army Knife - a directional twin shape with a full wood core and a stomach full of kevlar, capable of slicing through chop like a 900 degree knife through butter. With a standard CamRock profile for easy turn initiation and superior float when the going gets deep, the Venus has what it takes to put the sizzle in your season.
