  1. Hey TL What model year? What's the waist? SCR?
  2. Damm! I can't believe this beauty is still up for grabs Will somebody buy this before my willpower wanes!!
  3. Focus! Breathe! Reach/Elbow to Knee,! Hold It,.......Keep Back Straight,......Hold it!, Hold It!, Rotate/Shift Weight!.....Annnd Repeat: Focus, Breathe, One More!....just one more and I'll stop for a break!
  4. Great info guys!! So any comparisons?? So it's not as stiff compared to Doneks or Virus of similar length and purpose??
  5. Hmmm...so the XT model has a 22 waist - correct? It seems SG boards don't rate the boards stiffness or recommended rider weight ?? I'm 225lbs of Hard Charging Carver that likes a somewhat softer flex "than recommended for my weight" board.... is a Full Race Titan a Race Plank or can us mere mortals bend it??
  6. Hey Coma....do I have this right? ......your saying you ordered a New K168 from Ivan at iCarve for 30% cheaper than the SRP of $1440?? Dude! Congrats!!
  7. Hey Shred Don and Shane at Alloy said the DO series boards are incrementally 15% stiffer as you go up the board lengths....so the 165 is 15% stiffer than the 161.... and the 161 is 15% stiffer than the 159 I'm a 230lb big boy and I loved the 161....but I like a softer board you can ride all day.... not one that destroys your thighs after just 2 hours of riding. I would buy another 17/18 161 if I found one!
  8. Hey Dredman Couple of questions: Please remind me how many made registrations/showed up to last years event?? Also...what happens if we don't hit 50 registrations by Sept. 1st??
  9. i might take a position in southern UT at Cedar City, which looks like 40 minutes to Brian Head....... looks pretty good for carving from the website trail map Any you guys ride it and got the beta?? A good place for pow? family mellow uncrowded mtn. or tourist destination crowded?? Any other relatively close resort choices from Cedar City??
  10. Jack....are you saying that if I love my UPM BP V2 4mm lite....and I Do! ....that I'm gonna be OMG!!! with a UPM Donek or Vist plate??
  11. Wow! That just freaks me out! I'm no Engineer but surely the length of the board with and where the Plate was attached and the effect as a fulcrum (the Perfect Storm!) at 50mph contributed to.... Design Failure???
  12. It's purely a visual thing - no difference in performance - just don't like the latter model flat black top sheet I thought the shiny top sheet model was the Bomb!, and yes it made it Super Slippery without a Big Stomp Pad!
  13. I'm looking for a Turny Little Bandit and I Want On Of These SF162's!! I'm 225lbs and like a softer board. Don't need a stiff piece of lumber that I can only ride for a couple of hours before my legs give out! Been there- Done that! Mark, can the stock board handle my petite 6'2' 225lbs. ????
  14. $1440 Man! For that K Alpine Ride It's A Steal And Soooo Worth Every Penny! As another K devotee I can't say enough about my K168!
  15. Daveo - I had a 161 Demo I got from Don and I can say it's a Turny Predictable Little Bandit!! AND I'd say if I could find an unmolested carbon 2017-2018 (the shiny topsheet model) D O 161 I'd by it in a heartbeat! You seriously gotta try this board! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!!
