  1. Smooth and nice footage.....Like Milk and so on and so on.......looks like a carver's heaven ........ Yep !.......but too short !...........
  2. Nice board shape and color Bigwavedave !......But may be some more crafting specs and infos are missing, don't you think so ?.... Please, tell us a little bit more.............. Ha !........and the board colors just perfectly match with the wood just behind........ ! Time to start a boards wall of fame man !!!

    Only three snowfalls this winter here, so only three powder days that only last for maximum 48 hours because of the very strong winds or the rain......a globally bad season for the moment .......this year, you really had to be at the right place at the right time......Last Saturday morning March 7th's joy, worth the climbing for the run down....

    Uber Funny

    A man entering a rental shop............. Rental Shop Owner : Hi mister !...................Skiing or boarding ?......... - Uhhh......... - OK ! .........Goofy or regular ?
  5. PATIENCE , PATIENCE , and PATIENCE !..........but for less important other reasons than yours Barryj !......... Only 2 snowfalls here in the whole winter till now !.....and only 2-3 days left after each snowfall for "good" snow conditions...............and I'm generous !...... Then strong rain or very warm weather followed by cold foggy nights that we don't even remember what carving on corduroy is..... You just hope you got sticky rubber band socks on or a dentist that made you a strong filling or you may lose it on such a boilerplate snow we got here !......
  6. Would be interested in a back to back review with one of the planks your board is laying against.......................just to be sure.....!!!
  7. Looks like you guys had had tons of turns and tons of fun in a very friendly ambiance............ Looking at this photo album put a smile on my face and make me wish we had such of an event like this over here.....Thanks for sharing !

    A bit late for posting............tracks from 10 days ago............! Leaving the first one, always has something special...............................
  9. Right Nils. The rider's names can be found right at the end of the movie in the credit list.
  10. Slightly off main topic but echoeing well what Mr. Beckmann is saying. (even if more ski boot orientated) May also work for the "Booster Strap" Topic in this forum. Long but worth the read I think. https://skimoves.me/2015/02/13/the-shocking-truth-about-power-straps/ For those interested in biomechanics riding planks, that website is goldmine.
  11. My 2014 163 REV (20 cm waist) was my first metal board......Waow !.......Previously had a 2006 glass 171 FC (18cm waist)..... Well........no comparaison of course !..........I ended selling the latter !..... Stock REVs are race orientated, large variable SCR.... Proteus are more poppy freecarve orientated with a stock fixed SCR.... When I bought my REV i was hesitating with a proteus....but my REV has was a fixed 11,5 SCR prototype and I wanted a race construction feeling........ I do get now both of both worlds under my feet.......Like a race construction feeling mixed with a turny and predictable Cadillac ride.... But take care, even with a short turny radius, the REV stays a race kind of board that want some input to give you some reward but waow.....with the right amount of it......very fun board, great edge hold, that can also be a freecarving board if you're not too lazy.... If Looking towards a Donek ride, talk to Sean, he's the man, and knows his boards better than anyone of us here, depending on his customer's desires....You cannot go wrong with him......Have fun carving the hell of it !....
  12. Apparently made in Poland, I just saw it written on one of their boards yesterday in the shop.....That was on a special edition board, soft boot "carving" Bullet Train Plus model.... Pretty decent construction quality but nothing impressive. Medium/hard longitudinal flex. Nice minimalist look and marketing...........! The board seems to have a metal layer underneath the topsheet.....Titanal or not ?......website says "Titanium" (!!!.......) Judging buy the price and the "noise " when knocking the board, it finally doesn't look so damp like a true Titanal layer can be....but I might be wrong as I didn't try that board.......I'm just judging by the look and the hand. To be honest, I'm not drooling about that kind of board.......It is of course, a totally personal point of view.
  13. Hi JohnE, I'm just starting riding it....Been on glass Inclines for 13 years considering softboot gear....After some time on it, I will post a review on the forum. Thanks for the interest !....
