Last weekend we headed over to the inaugural Shops 1st Try board test in Venet, Austria, and convinced the brands who'd pitched up to allow us to film their new snowboards. Peep what a bunch of 'em look like. More tomorrow...

Try as we might we couldn't get the reps to give us any chat on the gear. They were keeping shtum till ISPO, so until then enjoy a first glimpse at the sticks that'll be tempting your credit card from autumn 2012. We'll drop more tomorrow [Part 2 of our 2012/13 Snowboard Sneak Peek is now live].

So feast your peepers on what boards from the likes of Burton, DC, K2, Ride, Salomon and more will look like come next winter. Everyone just buys boards according to their graphics anyway, right?
