Fresh out of the kennel, the Rome Service Dog is here to lead you to your safe space. This pow hungry rascal is built for finding fresh tracks and floating through the deep. Built with Rome’s new Directional Diamond 3D, plenty of taper, a deep sidecut and a tail that won’t stop wagging
Designed for all-mountain prowess and float in the deep. Rockered in the nose, flat under the front foot, with a positive cambered tail.
Taper is featured in directional boards built with wider noses than tails, helping with agile turns and added float in deep snow.
Designed to increase float in deep snow, improve handling in variable terrain, smooth turn initiation, reduce edge catch and complement all-mountain riding in all-senses.
One single rod of bamboo milled into the board's core in the nose for pressability and playfulness.
Fiberglass running in three different axes, built for torsionally rigidity and added snap.
Our most stable and predictable core, built with 100% poplar construction.
Fiberglass with two different axes, built to be more torsionally playful and flexible.
A new base material that features improved wax absorption, increased durability and the most bang for your buck.

Originally was looking at the StaleFish but ultimately decided on the ServiceDog because of the softer flex rating. My sister has a Party Wave and my friend a Slush Slasher but I decided on the Rome Service Dog because compared to their other boards the Service Dog can kind of do it all and in my opinion. It can be ridin everyday whether it's on groomers resort riding, pow days or party board type days.
I ride a 153 and I am 5'8 at 180 pounds and works well for me. I will say does feel like it rides like a 155 which is neither a bad or good thing, just something I noticed. That being said I'm a believer in its less the length and more looking at your riding style and weight for board size.
The top sheet on this board is a beautiful gloss finish and I know it's durable because I let my friend take it for a lap while filming. Not knowing he was going to crash into me from behind and while his jones top sheet(I was riding) got totally screwed up the one front nose corner of the Service Dog slightly pulled up and is barely noticeable with no structural damage to the core.
I paired mine with the Union Strata(mini disk) for extra flex and a Crab Grab(dog bone shape) stomp pad to match.
This board is extremely fun and capable. It's first voyage was at night in highly variable "cripsy-breaded" dust on crust. I think night riding tends to make you rely a little less on your eyes and tune in to how the board and snow feel. This deck was, from the first run, super confidence inspiring. It floated effortlessly in the deep/heavy stashes in the trees, stayed sure-footed blasting through torn-up chunder, and didn't punish me for laying into a turn on what looked like a side pow-pocket that turned out to be solid ice. I am a huge fan of the versatile directional tapered board shape. The bit of camber on this, combined with the nose rocker, really sealed the deal for me. The nose is especially fun to press and flex around on, but is also a huge help when you speed up and need to rely on it to hold an edge. I spent a little time riding switch as well: not a problem. I'm an aging lifer and am not setting up switch up for 40 foot tabletop jumps. You will be fine landing fakie or riding switch here and there. Lastly, I had never ridden a significantly short tail before, and I was surprised at how hard it could pop ollies, along with how cooperative it was when I landed weight-too-far-back a few times; it landing-geared me right out of trouble. This dog is for you.
From the first turns you'll know this is a deck, built to shred and destroy anything in your way. Basically bomb proof & nothing short of absolute fun. I love the poppy feel and pressability of the big spoon nose. Better yet you can rip this thing like a bat outta hell. Textbook perfect powabunga shred stick.
Great price point for a pow board.
It's a do it all, all conditions terrain stomper. Had the change to ride it in spring conditions and slushy snow. Held a carve nicely (both reg and switch) and buttered on the nose like never. Great experience, recommend even for a daily driver.
I'm 5'7" 140lbs and ride the 148 cm, i usually ride the Stale Crewzer 151 cm
