O-Sin 4807 Custom Swallowtail Snowboard 
O-Sin 4807 Custom Cut Swallowtail Snowboard
This board was designed by legendary surfer Herbie Fletcher for Original Sin Snowboards in the late 90's. Its boat hull shaped nose is the most unique nose profile in the industry. It has a consistent "stiffer" flex pattern that is cut with a deeper swallowtail in the board. The O-Sin is a favorite of riders that want solid performance in all conditions. The Swallowtail enhances the sink of the tail which maximizes the float of the boat hull nose. An amazing board for those deep and not so deep days (under a foot of powder) with the capability to perform well when it gets deeper.

- We are a small store and don't ship from a warehouse. Many of our snowboards are display models and may show minor cosmetic wear from being handled by customers. This could include small scratches or scuffs on the topsheet or evidence of fingerprints. We will always contact you if there is damage that is more than cosmetic such as any damage to the base or edges. Please contact us if you have a question about the condition of a particular board.

|I got the 178 fishtrail version. It rock as an around, all mountain board. I would avoid this swallow trail version if ever encountering breaking crust, That can make an swallow tail unskidable. I have chopped of the swallow tails on my Voile due to that dangerous glitch.|

|I've own this board in a 178 cm length for 19 years. This board rocks in all conditions except the park and switch (duh). In powder it has the most amazing float feel to it. Due to the boat nose and swallow tail, the front of the board rises up and the swallow tail sinks making for tight arcing turns. It turns like a 150 and floats like a 178. In regular northeast US conitions (packed powder/manmade), the shape of the bites for smooth crisp flowing turns. I'm 5'10 and I would not recommend anything shorter than 178 cm. I run a men's size 9 boot, which is just small enough to fit this board. I could lay this board over, but I pop the edge out on heel turns. I might buy a 188 if it was offered. I have owned and rode Lib Tech 162.5, Solomon 162 and a Nydack 159, which all are great boards. But to my riding brothers and sisters, the O-Sin Swallowtail is a boarding experience is not to be missed.|
