Press Release:
K2 Party Platter x Tony Hawk x Birdhouse

About the Project: We joined forces with legendary skateboarding pioneer Tony Hawk on a very special graphic release on one of our favourite boards. Featuring classic Birdhouse graphics and just the right amount of K2 vibes, this K2 x Tony Hawk collaboration is extremely limited and sure to move fast.

About the Party Platter: Many “shaped” snowboards are built to zero in on one specific riding style-this is NOT one of those snowboards. The K2 Party Platter is purpose-built to be a daily driver for slashing berms, laying down carves, and plowing your way through thigh deep pow.

To give the directional, mid-flexing Party Platter a versatile and playful feel we built it on a Combination Camber profile that drops camber in between the feet and mellow rocker just outside of the bindings. This provides stability at higher speeds and allows the edges to track and hold while carving, all while retaining an easy pivoting feel for smooth ground tricks. Our Volume Shift™ and design minimizes toe and heel drag and provides float in deep snow.

The BAP Core is built from sustainably harvested timber, and gives the board a smooth and even flex while absorbing vibration and chatter for control in all conditions. Our Carbon Ollie Bar™ is strategically placed in between the inserts, giving the Party Platter big time snap and rebound for launching side hits. We wrap the core with biaxially woven fiberglass for edge-hold that can be finetuned by the rider depending on how and where pressure is applied to the board.

The icing on the cake is our Sintered 4000 base, composed from a supremely tough and durable material that soaks up wax like a sponge and gives you the speed you want for lacing pow turns or lining up the big jump in the park.

  • Feature 1: BAP Core-A tri-blend wood core harnesses the rebound, strength, and feel of sustainably harvested Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia timber species.
  • Feature 2: Biax Glass-A fiberglass weave intersecting at 90º angles provides just the right amount of torsional flexibility and strength.
  • Feature 3: Ollie Bar™
  • Feature 4: Hybritech™ Sidewall Construction-A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we are able to reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors.
  • Feature 5: Sintered 4000 Base-Hard, fast, and durable, our Sintered Base material holds wax better that extruded materials increasing speed and glide.
  • Feature 6:Volume Shift™-We reduce swing weight and toe/heel drag by shifting surface area from the tip and tail to the waist of the snowboard. Downsize from 4-10cms from your usual snowboard length.

K2 Afterblack x Tony Hawk x Birdhouse

About the Afterblack: The K2 Afterblack is a premium freestyle snowboard that specializes in night missions, wall rides, huge airs, and promises to come through in the clutch to give you the confidence to give it one more go.

Designed for the intermediate-to-expert level snowboarder, the Afterblack is a mid-flexing true-twin with a Combination Camber Profile-with camber in between the bindings and rocker on the outside of the insiders-giving it a playful feel while still being able to hold speed and track straight into the next feature. It’s tri-blend BAP Core blends bamboo, aspen, and paulownia woods together to deliver snap and rebound while damping vibration on the harshest landings.

Wrapping the core, tip-to-tail triaxially woven fiberglass and Carbon DarkWeb™ gives the Afterblack stability and edge control for popping off lips and sending big side hits, and the fast and durable Sintered 4000base soaks up wax to ensure you’ll have enough speed to send you well past the knuckle and down to the sweet spot in the landing.

  • Feature 1: BAP Core-A tri-blend wood core harnesses the rebound, strength, and feel of sustainably harvested Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia timber species.
  • Feature 2:Triax Glass-A fiberglass weave intersecting at three angles provides extra torsional stiffness and overall strength.
  • Feature 3:Carbon DarkWeb™-Carbon stringers extend at 45º angles from the inserts in an “X” pattern, adding responsiveness and stability at all speeds.
  • Feature 4:Hybritech™ Sidewall Construction-A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we are able to reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors.
  • Feature 5: Sintered 4000 Base-Hard, fast, and durable, our Sintered Base material holds wax better that extruded materials increasing speed and glide.
