I've got a 180 Overspeed sitting in the basement. It was like driving a bus! :lol: The "easy grab" scared the cr*p out a me! :eek: The ridiculously convex base was like trying to snowboard on a sledding saucer. No edge catch rail slides, way ahead of its time. :eplus2:

I remember this board and other asym boards because I have been riding plates a long time. Used to ride a hooger 164 asym which I donated to the carving mueseum at Bomber. Also used to ride a Mistral 159 asym which is also in the mueseum.Also rode a kemper apex 160 asym and a hot logical. Those boards all had aluminum plates in them to mount the bindings on. You had to have the board drilled by a shop that knew how to do it and the bindings mounted with special screws in the plate. If you wanted to change your stance you had to have the board redrilled with new holes. It was a great day when they came out with the 4x4 insert pattern we have today! You would pick a stance and ride it.

Actually, you could also T bolt right through to the other side as well; after pulling bindings out of the hot a few times, the T bolt seemed to work better :-) Also, can then go with a 4 hole pattern as well - all good!

The look overspeed was back in 1990 in New Zealand; nice looking big long board; the Lamar trickstick is teh biggest joke right up there with the blacksnow mogul muncher and the K2 gyrator....

I had a Look Overspeed 175ish. The guy who had it before me hit a tree and cracked the nose. He got a new one and fixed the old one with some aluminum to give to my brother. It is a goofy asym board and he was regular so he gave it to me to learn on.

I struggled, but I learned with the advice of a level 3 rider at our mountain.

I had some Fritchi 2 peice bindings with the bails on the heel that screwed into the topsheet, but I ripped them out so I T-Nutted them. Then I drilled holes for some 4X4 bindings too.

I rode the board untill 4 years ago, I really liked it, it rails hard and is pretty stiff.
