The 2019 RVL8 Spliff represents the culmination of over 4 years of research and testing of rockered skiboards. RVL8 had been producing traditional cambered (raised up under foot) skiboards for 6 years when they made the first ever rockered skiboard in 2012, the Rockered Condor. Rockered skiboards offer the epitome of powder performance. By rockering (angling up) the tips and tails slightly you open up a whole new world of float, but most traditionally rockered and zero cambered skiboards struggled to perform well on ice or groomed (on piste) snow. There just wasn’t enough edge making contact to hold a fast line on hard snow. Enter the 2016 rockered and cambered 109cm RVL8 Spliff skiboards. With 3mm over 10cm rocker combined with 6mm of camber the Spliff is the best performing sub 110cm skiboards regardless of conditions. The true one skiboard quiver. The 2019 Spliff graphic is by veteran RVL8 designer Martin Azevedo.
Here are the first comments from RVL8 prototype skiboard tester Dave Stevens – “Another Home Run from RVL8. Wonderful stability, beautifully neutral handling, extremely comfortable ride, great edge grip, and that elusive ‘Big Board’ feel, all in a very cool format. Whats not to like?” ….read more

Branden Harding –
I have been riding Skiboards for over 15 years, Park, Powder, Groomers and the Ice Coast. I’ve ridden everything from the 75cm Samurai’s to the Rockered Condors.
These are the perfect do it all board. They have the stability and float of the larger 120 boards, but are agile and turn with little effort like the short boards thanks to their camber.
I am 5’10” 195lbs and use non releasable bindings.
I use them for everything from Park, to Powder and everything in between.
The spliffs have replaced my “quiver” of 3 different models and have been all I have skied for the last 2 years.
I can’t recommend these enough to anyone who skiboards and is still looking for the “do it all skiboard”.
