Today I road a tesi8. 183 cm long 18.5 waist. Miller told me it was similar to an 8RW but it’s got metal in it.  Today’s conditions were really firm in the morning and super soft on the front side at noon. The board worked in it all. What I really noticed about this board is how well I could turn it uphill to control speed and then turn it right back downhill to gain it back

@kram that Tesi still got the lively feel under foot typical of other Thirsts? 

 

Yeah the whole quiet, lively, damp lingo I’m not sure I understand fully. I use the word stable to describe the Thirst boards, they can handle some variable conditions like an unexpected icy spot or a chunk of bad grooming. This board did everything I wanted it to do.   I got my order in. I’m getting one.

Ooh sweet mercy -- I'm hearing construction is quite different to established metal boards too

Genuinely curious as to why the metal? Pressure from the community that thinks they can spec a better board?  My 8rw already grips better than any of my metal boards and the noise it makes is awesome.

my wife gave me a really dirty look when I suggested using the stimulus to help our local board builder

Haha mine is magically transforming into a Superconductor! Stimulating the economy I care about.
