Charlie Slasher was a CAPiTA cult favorite, world-renowned as one of the best powder specific boards in the world. Legions of die-hard fans rode this model on resort days as a side-country slasher, and many used home split kits to enable Charlie to escort them into uncharted territory. These dedicated souls wanted a factory split version of the Charlie Slasher, and if we listen to anyone—we listen to the searchers and the seekers. Here’s to the individuals who strive to push the limits of human power, to those that embrace the solitude and camaraderie that snowboarding without boundaries provides.
The 2019 Neo Slasher features a second generation DuraTail™ die-cut top sheet to protect your tail on the ascent, as well as a factory split chassis and hardware from the UNION BINDING COMPANY. A smooth sidecut flowing into a sinking 22 mm tapered tail provides smooth descents improved by an all-new HyperDrive™ base. This time-tested shape with a wide-frame rockered nose naturally floats above deep snow and transforms tiring powder days into long-lasting, incredible ones.
The ALPINE V2 Profile features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This provides more control on the ascent when split, while maximizing floatation and turning power on the way down.

Originating in the late 1970s as an outgrowth of the Post-punk anti-establishment scene, Neo Slashing emerged as a distinct subsect of hyper-recreational transportation. Its practitioners drew from the unusual sounds of 1960s psychedelia and channeled the urban confusion of the day into the vast openness of the alpine world. They identified with and evangelized the ways of R.A.A.D., or Radical Ascents And Descents, updating in many ways the far more conventional alpine approaches of the day. What made Neo Slashers so avant-garde is that they ascended on two planks but descended on one. With this concept, a revolution was born. While Punk rock, Post-punk, New wave, and other social movements were closely held—and short lived—due to minute influences in micro-cultural shifts, Neo Slashing flourished into a more widespread and international movement of seekers who applied the spirit of independent empowerment to new areas of the wild. Outside observers now refer to the process as splitboarding, but to the core and the connected, it will forever remain Neo Slashing for the truly R.A.A.D.
