This boot may be mightier than the board. The reason is not just that Terje Haakonsen picks this one above all others, but that the fluid flexing design incorporates only the top tech developments—from the latest in liner science to the ultimate Vibram® outsole. Top of the list this season is the NEW S4 Bombshell—a superlight full S4 shell construction for ultimate rebound and long-lasting response.
