Known for its exceptional performance, this board boasts a formidable combination of tip/tail channels, a aggressive rocker, and brand new dual stitched carbon stringers. The result? Unmatched explosive pop and unrivaled grip, making it a standout among our extensive board lineup.

The Asylum V6 package includes the board itself, along with 4 x 1.75 (1.9x15.2cm) fins and a convenient grab handle. This formidable freestyle favorite has been specifically designed for aggressive riders who crave the rush of going big, riding fully powered, and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. The Asylum V6's stiffness has been strategically optimized with our state-of-the-art dual stitched carbon stringers, which provide immense pop and outstanding flex and rebound characteristics. To further enhance its performance, this board features tip/tail channels and chined rails that offer exceptional drive for upwind performance and unmatched tracking in all conditions. Whether you choose to ride the Asylum with or without fins, you can trust in the legendary construction and durability that it offers.

The Asylum V6 has been purposefully crafted for riders who yearn to take their skills to the next level. It is a board that will never leave you feeling restricted, ensuring that you continuously progress and evolve as a rider. Thanks to its durable dura-light base and Atomic Wood Core, the Asylum V6 is one of the toughest twin tips ever created. This high-performance freestyle board is the go-to choice for Carlos Mario, former GKA World Champ. The dual stitched carbon stringers are responsible for its exceptional rebound and pop, providing ultimate capabilities for freestyle tricks and big-air maneuvers. Our sustainably grown Paulownia wood gives the board its lively and springy character, which is a quality that our boards are renowned for. The vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood's grain, offering stability, consistent flex, and explosive pop. The light, flexible, and durable inserts maintain the board's underfoot flex, ensuring a seamless and consistent feel from tip to tail.

The innovative manufacturing process used in the creation of the Asylum V6 infuses the rail into the board's core in a single shot, resulting in unparalleled dampening and durability. By incorporating channels that expertly redirect spray away and down, the board's belly channels reduce the surface contact area with the water. This, combined with the chined rails, helps prevent catching an edge during fast and precarious landings. The Asylum's channels are precision-cut using the latest laser technology, delivering cleaner takeoffs, smoother landings, improved responsiveness, exceptional grip, explosive load-and-pop, and unmatched upwind drive.

In order to support sustainable practices, our wood providers are FSC approved. This means that our products are sourced from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits for the future. With the Asylum V6, you can ride confidently, knowing that you are utilizing the latest technology and materials, while also contributing to a better future for our planet.

In summary, the Asylum V6 is a top-notch choice for riders seeking big air and optimal performance. With its array of cutting-edge features, such as tip/tail channels, an aggressive rocker, and dual stitched carbon stringers, this board offers explosive pop and exceptional grip. Designed for aggressive riders who crave the thrill of pushing their limits, the Asylum V6 also boasts legendary construction and durability. It is a board that riders will never outgrow, providing a platform for continual progression and a truly unforgettable riding experience.
