K2 Hypnotist snowboard 2024 review

The Lowdown

The 2024 K2 Hypnotist Snowboard is K2's true twintip board for park and pipe riders. With a twin camber profile that packs a punch, the Hypnotist is noted to be a powerhouse when it comes to freestyle and park. Don't be confused - this board can also take you all across the mountain. On the stiffer end of a flex rating, it is stable and strong enough to tear up groomers.

The Review - 4.8/5

Amazing! The snowboard is playful with a ton of energy. This board feels like it you could take it anywhere! If you are looking for a one board to do it all this might be it! Clean graphic and fun board. I did notice that it is not super surfy but close. Overall more people need to try this board. I want to try the next size up. It was a refreshing change up for me.

Who Is It For?

The K2 Hypnotist Snowboard is for the playful and freestyle rider that wants the versatility of an all-mountain board. For the one that you can always find in the park trying out new features and carving up runs. Skill rated advanced to expert, this board is for a confident and aggressive rider. Those that are looking for a board that packs a punch will enjoy the Hypnotist.
