  1. Love the specs and they have a 21cm width. Was tempting until I saw it would be around $2k
  2. @Shred Gruumer You should sell stock "options" on your custom boards you order. Buy a share of ShredGruumer guarantees you first dibs for future sales for when you unload your one of a kind custom boards to fuel your next project. Great looking board!
  3. Looks like we got a contingency from the Ice Coast booked and confirmed.
  4. That was a great board, never should have sold mine.
  5. I am local to Wachusett and ride in VT as well. We have a small crew that races at Wachusett on Monday nights. PM if you want to ride locally before our season comes to a close.
  6. I just got back from an overnight with my son at Sunday River. Towards the end of the day my son and I were doing laps on White Heat's double black. It was only 3 1/2 groom widths so I was working pretty damn hard to tighten up the radius of my Contra. The trail has about 3 sections where the pitch increases and you don't have a good view up hill to see who is coming down. Every time I got to the top I made sure I was the only one on that trail because I was taking up the entire trail going down. I stopped at every new pitch pulled over to see if anyone was coming down. Towards the lower part of the trail it opens to a wider trail and flattens out to more of a regular black diamond trail. I had a skier blow by me a pretty good clip that startled me. I was on my toeside and he was about 2 groomer widths away from me, but moving fast. He yelled out "nice fking turns" as he blew by. Next lap he passed me again mid carve higher up where it was tighter. I caught up to him at lift and he was all stoked up at the rooster tail I guess I was leaving carving down. I thanked him and as asked him politely if he would please not pass me on the steeper narrow terrain so I don't accidentally slice him in half. He was a former racer and was actually very nice and agreed that he would have a tough time stopping if something went wrong with me. He did say that he was trying to follow me to watch. I asked him to please give me proper space and not pass me until the trail is wide enough to safely pass me, which he politely agreed to. I just wanted to share this because this was actually a very good interaction with a knowledgeable and good skier who agreed and realized that he was buzzing the tower a little to close for my comfort. After that he kept his distance and we had some good conversation on the lift.
  7. It is called a Coiler Contra.....probably the easiest board to carve on.
  8. Dave, does it have metal or is it glass/carbon construction? MCCS 22, be prepared for a take over from the Ice Coast!
  9. Great advice Corey. @Ebootis trying out my new Contra on Saturday, let’s see if we can get a nice clean line, maybe it is all about Bruce’s magic
  10. Nice Brian, love the hard work you have been putting into your carving this season. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
  11. Dang! OK most of us all have a Quiver addiction issue, but an outfit addiction issue we’ll that brings it to a whole new level! The only other rider that I know of with many outfits is @dredman?
  12. Great video and riding. I think I counted 6 different outfits?
  13. Hmmm tempted for my 17 year old son...
  14. Correct pre production and I recall the preproduction demos rode a lot better than 2nd gen production. That army style topsheet was only used in preproduction boards. The flex was a tad stiffer. If you’re looking for a Madd, this board will be e better than production Madds from 2nd and 3rd gen runs.
  15. Paging @Shred Gruumer he may or may not have ordered a dozen Oxcess over the years from Marcel.
