    The swallowtail looks awesome! All the new top sheets look great!!!!!! There have been a few days this season I could have used the swallowtail :thumpsup: . How fun would that be?
    It’s great that we can always count on Voile to step it up a notch (or 2) in the name of FUN! 😀 :bananas:

    I know what I’m rock’n next winter, cause you aint lived til you’ve surfed an ST! You’ll wonder why you’ve been riding giant skateboards in the snow. (Unless of course your into that sort of thing) 😉

    My regular all mountain board is a Rad Air 200 :thumpsup: and I would like something a little longer but that’s getting custom and at least a grand…. :thatrocks:

    Nice to see the flagship return… My first split was almost one of the original 195’s, but it just seemed too “built for a specific purpose” to have as my only split in Tahoe. I grabbed a blemished Prior 172st instead, and have been quite happy. I acquired a used but not quite abused Voile 166 in the meantime for less than ideal conditions, so now I can dream about upgrading my Prior to the 195st for those special days… :mrgreen:

    Even this last weekend in Tahoe, by the end of the day Sunday I would have been stoked to be on a 195 instead of my solid O-Sin 178… Sure, it may only make it out a few times a year for me, but those times….

    I was emailing Dave from Voile about something else the other day, and tagged a quickie on the end about the 195:

    His reply:

    Not sure on price, will be a small production, should be up on site by end of summer when we have some stock.

    I’ve only got 178 ST and up in the arsenal. I have 2 195’s and have been bitchin to Dave, Mark and others that we need a small run on the 95s. Thank f%^&king that we finally have em’ back. In the Wasnatch I use both 4 to 5 days a week. My first 95′ has 150+ days…Voile makes great boards. End of the summer, Huh….I want another now… :rock: :guinness: :bananas: :thumpsup: :headbang: :banghead: :clap:

    Hey Dave (Voile)
    Any chance of getting some swallowtail love next season?
    How about something like this, an RX/ST hybrid 178 with the new top sheet?

    You want something LONGER than a 200? You must have a brain tumor…

    You turds can keep your 195cm Swallowtails. I’ll ride my 158 Hovercraft and slash all the spots you wankers are too slow turning to even think about!

    I know, it’s a lot of board, but when it’s double overhead and barreling you will be in the lodge sipping hot cocoa.

    Russman,
    Sorry man your opinion doesn’t carry any weight for the riding experience I’m pursuing. Just as mine clearly won’t change your experience.
    After thirty years riding everything from a snurfer to asym alpine boards, I’m pretty confident in my choice of board for the riding I do. I’m not looking for the latest board, just another ST for the quiver.

    I’ve done thirty+ tours this year in mostly shit snow conditions exclusively on the 195 swallowtail. For me it comes down to the ride, not the float. The ride is completely different than a non-directional skate deck. I don’t like the way those feel under foot.
    It has nothing to do with the ability to turn either. Its how fast you go on an ST, properly initiating the turn and committing to the line.
    Most riders who choose a swallowtail intend to ride long, fast lines and sweeping turns. I like that style as well, however I don’t have a problem riding trees. Going through trees is a matter of commitment and skill.

    Bottom line…. The post is about the Voile swallowtail. (We get it, you love the Jone’s boards and JJ is lucky to have the kind of loyalty you’ve shown)
    Less people snatching up swallowtails just leaves more of them for us turds & wankers. 😉

    Hey Snurfer 🙂

    I totally just meant that post to be poking fun!! If you think about it, we’re all turds and wankers!!

    Anyway, I would love to learn more about giant boards…. I tend to prefer big, fast, powerful turns in open pow… I’ve never ridden a 195 swallowtail. Maybe I should check it out!?

    When you’re riding a board like that, you can probably open your throttle up SUPER hard, huh? The level of high speed stability is probably off the hook?

    No worries Russman… You strike me as being passionate about your riding and write ups, so I figure you would probably really like the swallowtail. Definitely not for everyone, and can be weird if the rider fights the board. On the other hand if you go with it, the feel can add another dimension to your riding. I’m definitely short on the freestyle side of things myself, mostly due to age and creeky joints.
    Anyways happy shreding!
