I guess I'm the second Dan to write a review of the Thirst 8R Warp. For consistency, we both agree on pretty much everything about this board. If it sounds like plagiarism, there's a good reason. I rode mine for the first time two days ago at Park City. I was a little nervous as I used to have another brand of board the same length that gave me fits trying to ride at such a crowded resort. I always just assumed I must not be a good enough carver yet to manage a board that size without ALLOT of space. Really brought my confidence to an all time low. But by the end of the second run on the 8R Warp my confidence was coming back ( and then some.......SLOW DOWN)! This board felt so predictable, stable, and maneuverable, I was soon looking to try things on it that I hadn't thought to do before. It just became more fun every run. As I started getting tired I really began to appreciate the light feeling underfoot this board has. Flickable is another appropriate description. No noticeable issues with dampness. I had one very bad run down a manky area that had frozen into a minefield of thousands of piles of "Close Encounters..."mashed potatoes. Brutal! But I just picked a line and went. Other boards I've ridden would have gotten through also, but the added confidence this one gave me was comforting. And it's worth noting that this board is surprising at how fast it is. Not normal fast. But surprising as in "...Oh Crap, how'd I get going this fast so quick?!" Caught me off guard a few times. But the more I pushed the limits of where I thought edge hold was going to start failing, the more I started to realize that as long as I didn't get lazy in my form and maintained weight where I should, this thing just doesn't let go! And the poppy feel as I was exiting turns had me start to look more for lines with little rises I could grab a little air off out of turns as it seemed so much easier than I'd ever felt on anything else. So, just a really great, fun board that does what you tell it. And that's how I feel about it after just a few hours! I'm really looking forward to getting to know my 8R Warp better.
