Review: Voile Women’s Artisan

I’ve got to admit that it was pretty terrifying dropping  over 2 weeks wages on the necessary gear to begin my splitboarding journey. What if I hated splitboarbing? What if the board was super sucky? What if I couldn’t get the hang of it?! Enter the beautiful Voile Women’s Artisan Split!

Sitting in my armchair, enjoying the afternoon sun, reflecting on a busy weekend of splitboarding at Temple Basin…and I realise that it’s all worthwhile. The early mornings, cold fingers & toes, car camping, the scream of my poor lungs when I’m slogging it out uphill, the sore muscles, the bruises, the teeny weeny bank balance….yep […]

You know what they say…’proper preparation prevents piss poor performance’. (By the way, who are they anyway??) If that is the case, our performance will be anything but piss poor. Our bags are packed, our kit is checked and prepped. Plenty of battery in the beacons and lots of delicious back country snacks ready for […]

The arrival of the very pretty Voile Artisan led to a very busy afternoon. As soon as I had unpacked the giant box,  I was collecting my things to head out the door for a very important mission which looked  a little like this: get skins trimmed buy skin savers buy a new shovel, probe and […]

and so the story begins…

this beautiful beast arrived in the post a few weeks back! literally months of research, planning and overall excitement went into even being able to find this board. due to genetics, I was blessed to be a woman, and a shorty who for the most part could not find a men’s splitboard to suit the […]
