  1. That's funny- adding longevity to the board is the opposite of what I would assume to happen.
  2. I like the concept of being able to pick your tools, but magnets, titanium tools, no tool lock, etc makes it a pass for me. I could see it being popular, though.
  3. Yup to Ikon, most likley Loveland (they extended their buying period for renewals). Both look to have plans if the season is a no go.

    Risers

    Is Apex still in the snowboard buisness?
  5. Bwahahahaha- then my big boy should raaaaaail.
  6. If I remember correctly, radius on that was around 7.5m.
  7. Pretty sure there are more boot and board options I want to ride now than I did in 1995, a similar number of bindings and generally better riders. I think at this point we need to reassess what "thriving" means. I'm totally content, and with kids coming up I'm not worried about the sport when the greys stop ripping.
  8. My point was that we've been lementing the death of Alpine since at least 95, and... well... still not dead yet a quater century later. Good to see folks can still get riled up on the internet, though.
  9. Nabbed from Facebook:
  10. 1*base, 2* side, slight detune tip and tail. I've tried others, but in western snow I've never lacked for edge grip, can run comfortably base flat, and get more years out of edges without having to cut way into the sidewall
  11. Stuff I rode this year.... 145 Sushi*- fun, but not by bag. Sold it. 155 Prior SL- Zippy, no taper. Semi nestogia ride. 155 JJA Molina small and mounted with my own plate. Fun to ride with new folks when I'm putzing 163 JJA Cyress/ system- what a suuper fun board. Feels like a race board 169 custom Donek Incline - 22 waist, 11-13 side cut. Great getting my legs back under me, and great all arounder 171 Prior glass WCR*- predictable, but in an inbetween size/ sidecut range. Sold it 178 Coiler NFCE Ptex top*- lots of fun. Great board to help me push towards higher angulation at lower speed 180 Stone Swallow tail*- got a little riding, but we closed right at peak powder season 183ish (marked 185) JJA Cypress/ system- my current benchmark GS board 185 Oxess RG17*- super fun for me, very stable, very predictable. Sold it to mix things up 185 SG Titan*- Replaced the Oxess. Lots of fun. Added a Bomber plate. 185 Virus UPM WC*- I have a couple of days on it. Unlike any other 185 race stick I've ridden, I look forward to getting to know it more. I also had the pleasure to demo a 180 Liberation GS board, older 185 SG Titan and a 169 Stranda Shorty. All fun, and I'd be pleased as punch to own any of them. *I had the good fortune to sell a few and bring a few in this year. All great decks.

    Yo Lci!!

    Looks like Loveland emptied out there food services to hook up their employees with take-home boxes. Pretty rad.

    I'm sure they sell plenty of boards, but their camber profiles just generally turn me off (again, for my tastes and use). Sean is making some pretty sweet boards, so I'm cool.

    I've not ridden it, but looking at that board I thought it would benefit from a standard camber. I'm really not interested in rockered decks for my main uses.
  15. No plans, but I'll let you now. Hoping to get some runs on it, frst
