  1. No, sorry, this was sold in February.
  2. Perfect conditions to ride and practice on today - Very Fast Hard Frozen granular you can dig into with commitment. Wogo did extremely well in these conditions today. Lapped Spillway for most of the morning, lower Gondola a few times, Sluice twice and then hit Upper Comp with tired legs twice. Snow on Upper Comp seemed to be best, although a bit chewed up by the time I got there. I may start there tomorrow if it's groomed. Also was trying out new foot beds made by @Beckmann AG. I had custom foot beds made at a ski shop in Stratton at ECES in 2014. Didn't realize how much my foot still mov
  3. It's all good. I chose to come to Sugarloaf this year for the challenging conditions and terrain to try to improve. I guess I'll get more than I asked for tomorrow... Rode the 2" wet new snow today when the lifts finally started at 10:40am after the wind hold. Both Hay Burner and Kings Landing felt like there was frozen granular or firmer stuff beneath the snow. Should be very fast and very very firm tomorrow morning, if the lifts spin. It's supposed to be pretty windy and cold tomorrow.
  4. I'll be up riding Sugarloaf March 1-5. Yellow coat, lime UPZs, some Coiler strapped to my feet
  5. Practice good form and good technique with angulation, over and over again on any terrain - muscle memory. Hip dragging eventually is a by product of great technique. If your goal right now is hip dragging without getting the technique behind it, you'll probably just be forming bad habits/technique to try to get to this goal. These then will be hard to unlearn/undo. And you can develop good technique on a green run to get you there. My home "mountain" is below, all 300 bad a$$ feet vertical of it. It's a 5 minute lift ride, and 30 seconds of carving down. Our "black" run would be lab
  6. Is dingbat back again!? When are you coming back to BEast? I'll probably be up that way later this month but with restrictions in MA, won't be stopping there. Next season?
  7. Hey Bricky, I haven't received a PM from you in case you thought that you had sent it. Khanh
  8. 171 Coiler VSR AM - metal construction, ptex top sheet. 18.5 cm waist! Yes, it's a carving board, not an all mountain board. Or that's what I bought it and used it as. Turning radius, xtra tight, probably low about 10m average. Built for a 140 lb rider. T171 VSR T AM 012 AT1 - 6.1 + 5 Light marks on the base except for the worse shown. When I bought it there was a ding near the logo, so I marine epoxied it as shown. I had it tuned once, base has structure. $225 + shipping
  9. 167 Nidecker Proto - the all mountain version that carves very well. This is the last iteration of the Proto, about 2011. Carbon construction. Top sheet is in good condition, some light marks from when I bought it. F2 binding marks, and slight soft boot binding marks from when I bought it as well. I pretty much hard booted only on it. Base is good, light marks except for the included photo. It's 22.5 cm waist, SCR about 9m - 9.5m or so? Comes with stomp pad and tail protection as seen in the photo. $250 + shipping
  10. There hasn't been many reviews or other info on the WogoCoco so I thought I'd share my brief experience with it at MCC. These are only my experiences and thoughts, so your mileage may vary. My build is a 174 19.5 cm waist and I asked Bruce for 11.5 SCR. He said he offered 11 or 12.2, but would see what he could do. Therefore I don't really know what I received. Before riding it I was reading comments for the Contra cores and folks saying you need to ride centered and perhaps move your bindings a bit from centered on the inserts. Also I read comments that they don't turn as tightly as
  11. We have Sean Martin to thank for these great photos of us enjoying ourselves at MCC.
  12. Ask for hip dragging and you'll receive hip dragging
  13. 174 Wogo 19.5cm waist - I asked Bruce for 11.5m SCR, and he said he didn't offer it, but he'd try. Not sure what I got, I guess we'll see 174 A/T - 21cm waist, 10.5m SCR. It's intended to be for just light pow/crud/changing conditions. It's a carving board first, A/T second.
  14. Bruce came through with the boards for me to ride for the first time at Whitefish/MCC. 174 WogoCoco and 174 Contra A/T
