Park Riding on a Fishtail: An Afternoon with Ben Ferguson

Ben Ferguson is a rider at the very leading edge of snowboarding. Young, creative and full of ambition, it’s snowboarders like Ben who will undoubtedly influence the future direction of snowboarding.

Ben is most famous for his considerable prowess in the stunt ditch, but that doesn’t mean is snowboarding is limited to it. In this awesome little edit by Peter Alport, we get to witness Ben ripping through the┬áMt. Bachelor park and piste on a new Skip Jack Family Tree fishtail board from Burton.

Young, creative and full of ambition, it’s snowboarders like Ben who will undoubtedly influence the future direction of snowboarding.

Riding weirdly shaped powder boards in a freestyle context has been a popular trend recently, with Markus Keller’s Burton European Open pipe runs on a 183 Nitro swallowtail board immediately springing to mind.

If anything, it’s definitive proof that their drivers are so in control that it doesn’t make a difference what shape their board is. Watch as ben hits rails, kickers and a whole array of creative features on his swallowtail board and aspire to have the kind of board control he has.
