I'd contribute, but I'd seriously embarrass myself.  Nice to see a bunch of guys laying down on the job.  Kind of look like a bunch of millennials ( don't most of us wish we were millennials).

Pretty shots of you guys.

This is my contribution to the board-bending chronicles. Taken at ECES by either Bob Jenney or Sean Martin some years ago:

OMG Becky look at that flex!  Must be a Rappers Board!  

This is what happens when you are straight lining down a vacant green run and come over a rise and there is the Action Photographer... throw some turns fast!

My shortest board is 171... those little boards make you turn too much! That is exhausting!

I saw this photo on the Thirst site and was hoping you'd post it here. I was curious to see  this view as it shows a smooth arc with no kinks or flat spots under the bindings on these boards.

Virtual Plate.  Something special about the Thirst Flex and sidecut match up.  Not sure what it is... Do like it a lot.

Crappy photo of the best heel side turn of my life!  Bending it in 1996 at Sierra at Tahoe.
