  1. Always room for a split tail on the board porn string.... Here's "Candy" my new thirst PC 181
  2. I'm going to bump if you were waiting on me, ordered a new pair of RC12's from Dan Yoja. Having never worn UPZ's I wanted to start fresh with all UPZ and textbook size appropriate. Cheers!
  3. All the big snow resorts need to make lots of snow to cover holders and terrain features, plus wait for the slope springs to freeze up before they can open. They also try to make enough snow to store for use throughout the season, before Christmas week.
  4. Ok, with your "softer boot" preference, pre UPZ, what is you feeling on the '12s?
  5. I can really see how crooked I am there....Tons of manipulating this Summer to eliminate T4 Syndrome and straighten me up, actually an inch taller lol!
  6. Just took delivery on this new thirst Powder Carver 181 and this board is simply gorgeous. While all six of my thirst boards show exceptional build quality, unique graphics with the 3-D textured nylon topsheet, this PC, in Candy Apple, is truly a work of art. The keyhole tail is fully fabbed, not saw cut, with fully wrapped edge around and inside the tails, properly sidewalled. The "hook" should throw a rooster tail when in deep, and the tail is carbon fiber reinforced against breakage. The idea for the PC was to be a "Bucket List" board, the one board to bring when you can only bring one board. While every thirst model, (With the exception of the 9 SW) does well in powder, this model has powder in mind, obviously the tail provides the sink to allow the rider to stay in a normal stance/ position in bottomless freshies. Mark took his 40 some years of build experience to create a true groomer carver, incorporating his quasi-isotropic core, proprietary WARP sidecut and functional tip shape. While it may be awhile before I stretch her legs, I will be thinking much about just that.
  7. Interested! I hear that these run large, I typically wear a 28-28.5 Deeluxe, what is your US shoe size? Do you also have the OEM Liners?
  8.

  9. Ski Brule is opening this Friday November 8th!
  10. You'll love the thirst SF162 for more turns per run but also for the relentless grip / thin pencil lines. Not sure on your rehab, but all thirst boards are designed to keep the rider calm and centered, making for longer days with less fatigue....particularly for us mature, spare part enhanced Carvers.
  11. Hi Arne, Did you look at stem cells for the knee, or was totally trashed? Left knee arthritis is making itself known this Summer...
  12. Dave, let me know when you need the plans for the PVC snowboard rack in your new truck! All those beauties deserve a proper board hauler, LOL! The XC is an interesting fit in the thirst lineup, going back to this past season, due to marginal conditions, made me really appreciate having one. I may need a green and gold thirst ???? to maintain the rivalry....
  13. This will be my 6th season on the right and 4th on the left, never felt better or stronger. I chose the BHR procedure as there have been minimal post surgery issues and once healed, there are no restrictions. A full replacement is still possible if ever needed. Downside is a more invasive procedure and a 14 week recovery to function, takes about a year to be pain free, but that takes work, focus on range of motion, strength, etc. Get your head around that first, buy a new board for daily motivation :
  14. If he was the guy I sold mine to, contact info I would have would be near 15 years old. Looks like he's in the middle of a move, could be long distance, I'd give home some time to settle in.
  15. That RT looks familiar .....
