Kinda unfortunate name for a carving board...

Who knows about these babies?

Bryan?

Apparently custom made in Whistler by a place that has longer tradition then Prior... Killer hi-tech construction from what I've heard. Many exported to Japan.

I only know of a few rumours

The guy used to live and build on a very small scale in whistler, moved to the ?Kootenays? and apparently still making the odd board and skiis. I yapped with a guy that knew the guy a few years ago, so take with a grain of salt.

I think the only Hi-tec thing he did out of the ordinary was lace kevlar string back and forth between the edges,

that is all I know other than the odd board has been spotted on craigslist.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, Just want to add some info.

Carl, the owner of Skid, is living in Golden, and as far as I know, will still build boards/skis for people if they want them.

My 178 all mountain is still going strong after about 8 or so years.

Wow that woody nearly gave me one.

Beauty. Love the shape too. Looks kind of like a girl I used to........well never mind.

Slider, that shape is great, whats the waist on that, 22cm or so??

Don't remember offhand, board is in storage currently, when I drag it out I will have to measure.

It's a beauty, like a violin!

Pithy for that unfortunate transition from nose to body geometries...

Not sure what you mean by that?
