  1. 2014 Skwal Riding Festival - looks like fun

  3. Welcome to the club! Sounds like you had a great time on the board. I can perfectly relate to your lactic acid and unused muscles syndrome. Going to pick up my Thias next week. What board did you get? What happened on your second day out?

A few days ago I was prepared to say that production imperfections were long forgotten and acknowledge to the forum that my skwal riding has improved immensely with the softer flex and the 10m sidecut since receiving the CODA - which it has. The most recent problem, my CODA 4x4 insert hole pattern is off kilter not allowing binding screws to sit properly within my CATEK lower plate 4x4 pattern. Also, the insert depth below the surface of the board is so great that it will not allow one to obtain a three full thread turn engagement. Last night I discove

  11. Don - thanks for taking the time to describe Thias binding set-up, much appreciated. CHEERS! Mike
