Surfs Up

Back in 2013, the crew at Bataleon Snowboards got to know legendary San Clemente surf shaper Bill Stewart after wandering into his shop post Trestles surf session. That chance meeting later led to beers and the discovery of a prototype snowboard in Stewart’s home man cave that he had hand-crafted in 1981 but shelved after a frustrating first attempt to ride it at Big Bear. The board featured a strikingly similar profile to Bataleon’s 3BT, or Triple Base Technology, which divides the nose and tail into three sections—a flat center base, and up-turned sidebases on either side of the center.
