Current Boards in your Quiver

Current Boots Used?

Current bindings and set-up?

Snowboarding since

Hardbooting since

  1. Yup, selling this one. Though you can ride it with softboots it's really happiest with hardboots. It's one of the friendliest and most versatile HB board I can think of. It's very quick to turn and is nicely damp. Floats really really well in powder (if it can float in CO fluff it can float ANYWHERE). Really cannot say enough good things about this one. The only thing for me is that it is too narrow for my current use of softboots and that's why I'm letting it go. This particular board has been ridden approx 20 days. 23.5cm waist, ~10.5m contra sidecut, 180lbs rider. The base is 9/10, has 2 deepish marks on it (about 1mm deep) plus the usual scuffs on the topsheet. Never been ground yadda yadda yadda.
  2. SOLD---------------COILER STUBBY V2, 2019 , 175 LONG 20 CM WIDE 13/14m SIDECUT Bought the board brand new in 2019 with magnificent snakeskin deco with top carbonium, base look as it was new, no scratch or dig. Its short overall length with comparatively long effective combined with a moderately speedy sidecut is a potent combo for all around fun. It's a super fun ride which can handle a lot of your daily carving duties. If you want to carve while dragging your elbow in the snow this is your board. Really look like a brand new board. 595$ + shipping USD
  3. SOLD - I haven't been riding much the last few years so it might be time to thin the heard. 161 Coiler SL - ridden once. This is a copy of the board that Bruce built himself and won the nationals in ~2013. Sidewall engraving: T161SL 014DT - 6.8+11. The waist width is 20cm. SOLD - Price: $600 OBRO + shipping or pick-up in Denver.
  4. I’m selling this board for a friend. This is 165cm Coiler Race Carve Classic (RCC). It was built for a ~130lb female rider. She rode the board less than 5 days; she was never comfortable on it. The RCC is a single sidecut radius (not VSR). The waist is 18cm. The board was built during the 2007/2008 season. The price is $400. I will ship the board at the buyers expense. Buyer must take care of the logistics, send me a shipping label and I will drop the packages board off at the chosen carrier.
  5. I asked @Bruce Varsava at Coiler to simply tell me more about these new "Contra" shapes. Well if you've met Bruce you know you're gonna get everything you ask for and then some! One thing led to another and now I have taken delivery of two demo units to test in December. A 174, 20.5cm, avg 12.5m, and a 166, 20cm, avg 10.5m. I'll compare to my custom Kessler 175/20.5/10-14, and my stock Kessler 168/20/8-12. Those Contra sidecut numbers need explanation. Here was the gist of the email thread with Bruce, posting with his permission: " The Contra was designed from scratch as a board to handle a wide range of snow that we get from climate issues. It actually uses a lot of designs from previous freecarve models but puts them together in a unique package. Softer mid and tail allow for excellent ice grip and control on steeps. Bit stiffer nose punches through crud nicely. Sidecuts are different - not nearly as nose-grabby, and with less bouncing. Turns are altered more through angulation than fore/aft movement although a bit of that still helps. Kinda like but not quite an elliptical sidecut. Been working on them for about a year with help from the Montucky bros. Testing has confirmed that they work extremely well. I was out on a few occasions in rather shitty stuff and didn't realize how bad it was until I got on a Nirvana which is not too bad of a board but these surpass them quite easily especially in less than ideal snow. I was definitely bouncing around more on the Nirvana. . The Contra uses a mid tight sidecut similar to an elliptical but we have extra goodies thrown in here and there. @johnasmo is the real genius behind these sidecuts and has a system in place which allows for super consistent design and therefore consistent feel throughout the entire line. The Contra really gives the feeling that all parts are working in complete unison. First ride on one I immediately noticed it had a clean raceboard feel in a board that turns tight and biggest bonus is it works well in a stupid wide range of snow. I have had a few instances where I started a day on a Contra then went back to a traditional board and could not believe how shitty the conditions were. Get this feedback from a lot of riders. They just eat up the crappy snow we get all the time now. Grip is stupid high also as they seem to just hang onto almost anything. I bet you wonder how this all started (-: Each part of the Contra I have done before although the new sidecuts are a lot more involved. Never did all these things in one board so that was the goal to blend it all together. After seeing that a few other builders were designing boards with a mid tight sidecut and getting good results, I figured it was time to get to work on the freecarve boards. Last 4 seasons I was actually working on softboot and BX stuff which really required me to up the game in regards to my design system as softy boards are actually a bit more complicated to design. Softies are a great success story for me, sold very few raceboards last season and a lot of softboot boards so the design time was well spent. Now that the softy program is up to date, I used the new design system to work on the Contra and it took all of three prototypes to get a really nice board. I had to experiment with different ways to control stiffness along with the type of stiffness and when you get it right, it is exceptionally good. Reality is most guys need the easy rider boards which the Contra excels at. Not to say it isn't great for more skilled riders as it is, especially when it allows you to ride hard in sub ideal conditions. Contra sidecuts are a bit more involved so we just use one radius to describe them. However, the actual number to suit your needs has to be a bit tighter than what we are used to referencing from previous boards. The reason is that they like to stretch a turn better than tightening one so you simply get a tighter sidecut which will happily go faster and be plenty stable. I would say on average you go with .5 to 1m tighter than what you would normally want from any of my previous designs. Most popular has been a 12.5m so I'll go with that for the 174 demo. The 166 is a real sweet board with the 10.5m. One of my favorites! Some other exciting news as I just secured an autoclave which will allow me to use the hi end pre-preg carbon/glass similar to what a certain European manufacturer who makes a lot of black boards uses (-: An autoclave is a heat/pressure vessel which is what they use to press their boards. Unfortunately, the Covid issues have slowed this project down as I have not even been able to pick up the Autoclave yet. My only problem is I am old! Elbow just gave out yesterday and I'm starting to sound like a broken record complaining about injures but I'm a few weeks away from 59 yrs old and it is the reality of a lot of hard mileage on my joints. Held up better than hoped for last season just finished which was a surprise as I did about 95 boards since Sept. Plan is to do about 80 boards next season as I am supposed the be off now till Sept. With the pandemic on the go, no golf so I have been busy making up a few stock Contra's which will be available in fall. As of writing this I already have about 60 of the 80 orders for next season but won't be starting those till fall. Can I golf now, puuuulllleeeez! BV "

The NSR and VSR have some epoxy on the sidewall to protect from boots rubbing the metal layer as you are skating. Photos below. I can send more detailed photos to those interested.
  7. Ouch but yes. The evidence is clear. I enjoy softboot riding more. If the day is perfect, I feel great and the slope is good I can link a carve or two but in reality it's hard work and I suck at it.

These are awesome boards and I really love them but I have not ridden them this year and probably will not ride them. 1) Coiler Nirvana Free Carve Balance (NFCB) 174 - 10/12.7/12, 20cm waist, made for a 180 lbs rider.

  14. I asked Bruce to build me a board in 2018 summer. My planned board is shorter, narrower and tighter in 160 x 19 x 12m to 165 x 20.5 x 12/13m. Finally, Bruce and I decided to make it longer, wider and faster. Therefore the produced board is ECVC 168 x 21 x 12.5/13.5m for my 168cm/135lb. I also ask my 3 years old daughter to paint the custom graphic for me. Riding History The board arrived in early 2019 in excellent build quality and the superb graphic is eye catching. It encarved "T 168 ECVC -6.2+9". I ride 4 days and 18/19 season. The board is damp and smooth which gave me courage to learn EC. Unfortunately, I twist my ankle of the back foot due to old boots being too large and riding too happy. I bought the new MS951 boots in the end of last season and have rode 15 full days in two trips in this 19/20 season. 19 days in total. Is it too late to post it in New Board Porn now? Flex The flex hits the sweet spot for my weight. And I particularly like the stiff nose. The board likes me to put pressure on the nose. I think I only had one not-so-serious nose dive in poor snow condition when there is a small pond of soft snow in the middle of groom run and I put too much pressure on front leg. Which is better than my other board with soft nose. I feel the board flex is quite constant from tip to tail. I feel confident, comfortable, stable & easier laying down carving even the slope is a bit uneven and curd. The length, width & radius are all to my taste. But if you ask me to do it again, I will probably make it longer in 170/175cm. Setting I feel wider stance width is less tiring. Therefore, I gradually increase the stance width from 45,46,47,48,49 to 50cm and will try to reduce it to 48 in my next trip. I also moved the binding to the front by ~0.5cm. I ride 52.5/47.5, 51/48 or 54/48. I am still trying to find the best setting. EC Performance I ride softboots for about 10 years, hardboots for 4 years. I am quite satisfied with my front side for the moment (though still has rooms for improvement). While my backside turn initiation is always a bit late, together with putting too much pressure on front leg (especially when the board return uphill), chatter happens often. Once chatter or the lost edge, my butts touch the ground for 1 or 2 second before regaining the edge. My pants and jackets are totally torn in less than 10 days because my riding style is everyday from first ride (8:30) to end of lift (16:30) without lunch for 7.5 days in a trip! (see attached image). After all, I learn a lot in this board and rectify my bad habit. Love it! Problem EC on 15-18 degree slope is ok. It is quite exhausted and tiring for EC on 19-25 degree slope. Perhaps, I will probably ask Bruce to made me a longer board? Another problem is that the MS951 is still a bit too stiff for pull-push though heavily modified. And riding without tongue is just too scary. I just found that the frontside edge, near front foot, has a 1mm dent at the edge corner. Finger can feel easily. However, I couldn't notice it when riding. It may be caused by skiers crash or hidden stone. Should I do something about it? Video Conclusion If you are a lightweight EC rider like me, I recommend Coiler ECVC to you. Question is welcome. Cheers!!

  18. Ok...here’s a review of my new baby After years of searching for the perfect soft boot carving board, and coming up short, I decided to have one built for me. Best snowboarding decision I ever made! Thank you Bruce Varsava from Coiler Snowboards.
  19. 173cm Titanal Coiler VSR (Variable Sidecut) with 23cm waist 7.2 + 6 if you speak Bruce This board is a great ride, extremely fun and still super forgiving. Great for a rider with big feet or for working on your extreme carving technique. The board has a black topsheet with a ghosted coiler logo along it's length. The board is in good shape, it has some wear at the tip, tail and in front of the rear binding from the bail. Pictures show board with storage wax. I am thinning out my collection to make room for some new rides. Believe it or not, I actually prefer even wider boards! Asking $500 for board and bindings. Shipping extra, will deliver in Collingwood area.
  20. Built in Spring 2010, this is a 2011 model 177 VSR M+ Turbo, Bruce's full code is T177 VSR M+ Turbo 011AW1 - 6·5+6 "Mahani" is one of the prettiest Coilers ever, top sheet has some minor scuffs 8 out of 10, bottom is a 10, in storage wax. She has under 8 days on her and needs to go to a new owner to be properly utilized. NEW PRICE $475 This board needs to go, financing two new thirsts - shipping not included.
  21. Board - Coiler Titanal 164 VSR TC (spring 2010 vintage) VSR - ~9m - 11.5m 13.5m Specs - 164 x 23.5 (it's wider and a bit more versatile) Bruce's code: T164 VSR TC 010AC1 - 6.3+6 Price - $300 (shipped to US 48 - added $20, i'm going to take a bigger beating on shipping than thought.). Will take trades for O'sin 3800 or something similarly versatile Contact Info: albertcmcastro@gmail.com I haven't kept up with where board technology has gone since 2013. This board was built for me in 2010. It is titanal construction, has rocker tip & tail, camber center, and variable side cut radius. I requested a specific design to be a general all-mountain board with a side focus for harder packed to - ice riding. It has approximately 50 days on it. My specs - 150 lbs. I found the board slightly stiff if i wasn't on top of my game and had been slacking in the off season and staying conditioned overall. If you're looking to trade, I need something that isn't going to beat me up if I haven't ridden for a year or two. I currently have an O'sin 3800 that hits the spot. Something similarly versatile will work. Shoot me an offer. Pictures: It carves... I used to carve. Lol...
  22. For sale - Coiler 163 SL titanal - built for Jack Michaud and I'm the second owner. Its got a 10-13 M variable sidecut with a 21 cm waist and is super versatile. Edges are 1% base and 2% side bevel. Good all mountain board, slalom board and great edge hold. Made for 170-190 lbs or so I think I've included a sidewall pic if you understand Bruce's code. I'm more than that but it handles great for me too. Broad range in this one I'd say. @ Jack M may be able to chime in too. It's in good shape, the usual nicks and scuffs. Just thinning my quiver to make room for a new board. $395 USD plus shipping. I'm in Canada, but I ride out of Sugarloaf so I can also ship from Maine 04619 depending on timing. (Does not include bindings.)
  23. 2018 Coiler SL C 165 $500 shipped 20.5cm waist, 9-10m scr, made for 185lb rider, nose 27, tail 25.4, 1.6cm taper Board is in like new condition (9.8 out of 10). No dings or scratches.
