As you may know a Caldera is formed when a volcano collapses in on itself after millennia of volcanic activity, creating awesome natural powder bowls which can make for some of the best powder stashes that mountains have to offer. In the same way, the Caldera has been tweaked, toyed with, and painstakingly designed, iteration by iteration to be the perfect, easy surfing, pow shredder for riders of all levels.
The wide rockered nose is unsinkable and at home in the deepest alpine pow fields, chutes and tree-lined gullies or ridges. Take a back seat and turn quickly off of the tail when dropping steeps and deeps or move slightly forward and you have a board that allows you to make graceful turns in pow and lay trenches on banks and groomers.

Board Specs & Sizing
ONEBALL Bio-Green Wax – All Telos Boards are shred-ready straight from the shop and are responsibly waxed from the factory with ONEBALL Jay Bio-Green Wax, made from renewable, soy beans.
ELECTRA Base – Telos high-speed, graphite infused, sintered base with die-cut logos is ultra-durable and helps eliminate the use of highly volatile solvents and chemicals used in typical inks. Solid color materials help to keep your bases looking fresh and the tighter molecular structure helps eliminate the possibility of unforeseen core shots from those gnarly backcountry sharks!
SURF CONTROL Core – Poplar and Paulownia core with X-Wood technology and Carbon fiber stringers provide additional pop and performance. Lightweight and perfect torsional flex for the surfy feel you want while riding the white room all day. Each core starts from raw lumber in our factory which is cut down to specifically calculated strips and laid up by hand with each piece exactly where it needs to be for Ultimate Flex, Feel and Durability.
FIBER-FleX Construction – Lightweight triaxial fiberglass construction makes the Caldera an ultra-playful and fun pow surfer. Full layers of fiberglass laminated above and below the Poplar and X-Wood core create a lightweight and durable combination that absorbs anything you throw at it while giving you just the right flex, stability and fun.
PERMA-FleX Resin – Telos proprietary resin that we’ve developed and used since the 1990s is still the only NO-VOC Resin used in the industry today. Many companies claim to use “Bio-resin” that may use sustainable filler materials but still also contain Volatile Organic Compounds that are harmful to our environment. Telos Perma-Flex Resin uses non-harmful specially formulated elastomers that not only locks in the camber and flex for the lifetime of the board but has the highest tested bonding strength of any other resin used in the industry today.
DIGITAL PRINTED Topsheet – Durable plastic topsheet, Digitally Printed using solvent free inks with smooth matte finish for a classy and timeless look.
SEAMLESS POLYURETHANE Sidewalls - Polyurethane sidewalls give you just the playfulness you’re looking for and the confidence to hold your edge on hard carves.
ALUMINUM TAIL Protection – Specially designed aluminum tail protectors give added protection and durability in the backcountry.
- CERAMIC EDGE Tuned – All Telos boards come with factory tuned edges with detuned tips and tails.
