Ideal for trees, powder and backcountry surf slashing The Mind Expander Split was built for the creative rider who weaves nimble and playful lines as they slash through the backcountry.
Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, the Mind Expander Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker profile and blunt nose for epic float in pow, plus a full size tail for legit freestyle performance. The unique shape is matched with a short sidecut for snappy turn potential in tight trees and Inner/Outer Traction Tech 1.0 edges for enhanced grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsional board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features the Boltless Bridge plus Karakoram Ultra Clips and Tip-Lock Tip Clips. New for 21/22, the Mind Expander Split is now equipped with the smaller and lighter Karakoram Ultra Clips 2.0.

Christenson Surf Rocker
Custom tip/tail rocker profile designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson for the Mind Expander, Mountain Surfer and Storm Chaser. The nose rocker starts just inside of the front inserts and the tail rocker starts just at the back inserts. When you weight the tail of the board the nose ramps up out of the snow for insane float on the deepest days. These subtle rocker contours match a Christenson surfboard rocker profile.
