    those old gnu’s were a beast to ride 😀

    i’m just diggin all the new/revived shapes out there

    agree on the first light shape and DPS skis

    the fawcett boards and venture euphoria are board i really want to ride.

    bc boards really need to have less sidecut

    i’m sure barrows has lots of good things to say in this thread, but i didnt read ’em 😀

    Off-piste designs for off-piste riding: Given the choice, I’d take (and split) one of these old bad boys over most production splits currently made.

    Although clearly not as refined, it’s hard not to notice the similarity between the DPS ski and Adam’s design with that of the last Snurfer’s sold by Poppen. Not that it matters, just find it refreshing and interesting some of the ‘old is new’ stuff going on with design. Squared off tails and noses, convexity, huge shovels, asymetry, big, reverse and nul sidecut, no high backs, no binders, no edges, wood bases, sorels!

    Fun stuff :headbang:
