Just picked up the first ever Winterstick Squaretail Plus 170!  My USASA auction prize.  With a nod to the old Roundtail Plus 170, hehe…

170cm long, 21cm waist, 9-12-11m "Roboid" VSR sidecut, high camber, full Titanal/carbon, extra torsional stiffness between the feet.  We'll see if it can measure up to my beloved Kessler 168!  Based on their metal 162 I tried last winter, I'm optimistic.  Gonna be a good winter!

Great looking board Jack. I hope it rides well for you and that you enjoy it.. Are you going to take it to Montucky Clear Cut? 

Thanks!  You bet I'm bringing it.  I think I would call it a "short" board for out there though.

A question I never knew the answer to is: how did this western (Utah, I think) brand wind up in Maine?

I can't do the story justice but suffice to say Dimitrije has not been involved in many years.  The company has a good relationship with him and pays him homage.  One of the current BMP owners, Tom Freemont-Smith of Maine is an old friend of my wife's - small world.  Great guy.  Maine Olympic hero (and my fellow longtime Sugarloafer) Seth Wescott bought in to the company in 2014 and helped move the manufacturing to Sugarloaf.  Pretty cool having a custom snowboard shop in my back yard.  You can read the story here, it's a pretty quick read: https://www.winterstick.com/history-of-winterstick/

@boardguru is mentioned in the story though I'll let him introduce himself if he wants!

It seems that Dimitrije had personally driven up from S.L.C to deliver board number 13, the first board to be sold to a customer

Do you still have that board Mick?

Unfortunately no. I gave it to a skater friend name of Arnie Hoag who like me had the 'sticking fever. Passing on the stoke to get more people into surfing snow. Back then there were very few people even interested in it. When we would get to the road at the bottom of Cardiff Bowl at Alta people would look at us like we were aliens.
