Swoard Extremecarver 3rd generation 168cm Medium flex. $400CAD + shipping or best offer (was about $300USD when I wrote this post)
Excellent condition, as I have only used it on rare occasions on perfect groomers early in the morning. It's been sitting in my locker for a few years, so it's time for me to get rid of it.
$200CAD + shipping (was about $150USD when I posted this)
Rossignol Sushi 145cm (one size fits all). Very wide (28cm) and short powder board with swallow tail.
I have only used it once. I've already got a powder board that I like, so this one needs to go
A little run on one of my Fullbag longboards, specificaly tuned for carving. We filmed this at sunset, late last fall, after an afternoon of slalom skateboard practice. First experiment filming with an iPhone on a gimbal. It was cold, sub zero celcius, thus the winter jacket and snowboard helmet. I will try to add more little clips of pavement carving on skateboards in this thread, once in a while.

I haven't kept up with where board technology has gone since 2013. This board was built for me in 2010. It is titanal construction, has rocker tip & tail, camber center, and variable side cut radius. I requested a specific design to be a general all-mountain board with a side focus for harder packed to - ice riding. It has approximately 50 days on it. My specs - 150 lbs. I found the board slightly stiff if i wasn't on top of my game and had been slacking in the off season and staying conditioned overall.
If you're looking to trade, I need something that isn't going to beat me up if I haven't ridden for a year or two. I currently have an O'sin 3800 that hits the spot. Something similarly versatile will work. Shoot me an offer.
So yeah, you can't buy these cameras in the UK, but you can get them in the USA and as a citizen of nowhere I'm good with that. A couple of years ago GoPro produced the Fusion and I couldn't imaging what I'd want such a thing for - a camera for producing VR, or videos I have to click around in to see things. That did nothing for me and I passed it by, wondering what the fuss was about. Eventually GoPro and others worked out how to use and sell the 360 technology: it's not about "VR", it's about not having to point the camera at what you're shooting, about being able to re-frame the video in post production. It's 100% the future and it's going to kill more traditional approaches I'm sure. For now, the quality's limited, but this is from my second day with the camera and after a quick slightly drunken edit of a single take. The snow on this run wasn't great, and I almost lose it at one point, but it's a start... and this was pretty easy to produce.
Snowboarding, oh yeah, that's a dump truck that the snow is about 10cm on windblown crust. We found better snow later, but the light was best when we were up there.
