The Masterblaster™ "Vista - Mike Yoshida x J Collab" Graphic

I'm proud to release my 2nd collaboration with Mike Yoshida. Mike travels the world capturing photos of today's top pro snowboarders. However it's his unique passion and eye for capturing beautiful snow environments that caught my attention and led to us creating this one-of-a-kind Limited Edition ski graphic.

The concept was to find a mountain view which would actually look more like abstract art from far away. However as you get closer to the image, you begin to see the details and realize it's an actual photo. Mike started by sifting through hundreds of his favorite environmental photos, and narrowed it down to a dozen that fit. We then spent countless hours further refining and testing different positions and scaling in the shape of the ski. It's always extremely difficult to convert a standard rectangular piece of art into two long skinny canvas's and make it look good, but we couldn't be happier with how this turned out! Photo taken in Hakuba, Japan. 

I’m building only 400 pair of this Limited Edition graphic on The Masterblaster ski, and hand signing and numbering each so you have a one-of-a-kind ski like no one else!

The Masterblaster™ Model Info

The Masterblaster™

125-96-114
Powerful, ultra responsive precision on firm snow that's equally fun & playful beyond the groomers

"The Masterblaster” is my newest ski, and has won awards from every magazine test it entered! I engineered it with ultra quick race-like handling and precision yet a unique split personality that’s also incredibly fun and playful when you get it in the powder. Unlike my other skis, it has a directional shape with a lower tail so there's more edge length in contact with the snow for the most grip possible on groomers. All of this is backed by my unique metal laminate construction for extra power and responsiveness when charging hard. If you liked the "Prophet" ski, think of this as it's new and improved mind blowing replacement! #JMasterblasterSki

Titanal Metal Laminate

More power & stability where you need it!
Unique to this model ski, I'm using a titanal metal laminate on the top and bottom of the core. Instead of running it edge to edge, tip to tail, I've optimized the metal laminate’s geometry & location running only narrow strips down the center and ending it before the tips. This way there's enough metal to dramatically increase power, stability & dampening over the length of the ski in contact with the snow, however the tips are lighter for dramatically reduced swing weight to maintain a nimble, lively & fun feel. You'll notice the tail of the ski metal geometry has slightly less metal to allow for a more playful and forgiving exit out of your turns while the tip has more for powerful initiation and reduced chatter in the tips. You'll feel like you're on a GS race ski when you're carving it up, yet be shocked how fun & nimble it feels in tight trees, chutes and even the bumps. Enjoy!
