so what is it

my self, my rock board is an old (like '98) Option free + 163. this board has been in my arsenal for a long time (of course) mainly as my back up, but it hasn't lost it's camber yet.

I also have an Atlantis signiture 157 (from 99 or so) which is a bit short but I'm light and it rips in the tight gullys and big pow stash's. though it's smallish stature has kept it from being my primary ride it's a great tree board.

I just picked up a Ride Number 4 164. what can I say, this board rails. never thought I'b be on a Ride, but I got a deal I couldn't turn down. time will tell if it hold out to all the rockies can throw at it.

atomic radon. 154. (2005 model)

i got this board when i was an instructor and just got it because they proform really cheap. i just needed a board to trash in the park. i am quite impressed though, great board nice and flexy like i wanted for the park, but snappy too.

For powder days : Lib Tech Litigator 172 bought off a fellow splitboard.com member (thanks Ken). This board was cheap and rides really nice, it's fast and has eliminated all the float issues I was having with the smaller board it replaced.

Every other day : Rossi Premier 159. I love the way this thing rides, my favorite board I've ever owned. Has alot of "snap" and "pop" to it, very responsive.

An 04' Ride Timeless 168 with Burton Cartel highbacks

Fast and stable, turns well in the crud, edges well on ice.

I usually snag a pair of those from the shop 2 -3 times per year, they are pretty fun. Ski boots royally suck though.

Resort toys:

Never Summer T5 165 for normal days.
Never Summer T5 168 for deeper days.

Saving for NS T5 168 split.


Once you ride a NS you won't ride anything else. Seems to be a common trend in my group anyway. Lots of folks moving to NS from Burton, Salomon, Ride, etc..... All those seem to clap out after a season, but they ride OK when new.

Unity, Arbor, and a few others make bomber boards as well. P-tex sidewalls and solid construction is key.

have to agree with comments re: NS above. i ride a Never Summer infinity (female version of the NS SL) 151 w/drake matrix (lady) bindings inbounds. i was on a NS premier 150 before that. these boards are absolutely amazing. they're bomb-proof.

i've ridden over countless rocks/roots, and the base shows minimal wear. they're also super damp and ride super smooth. way more durable and high-performance than anything else i've been on. the premier was a SICK ride- i could absolutley CRANK on the groomers- but a bit too stiff for me...i'm a smallish female. the infinity is the perfect fit. it's a great little all-around board..i ride it in the trees, in the powder, in the park, on groomed, switch, etc. it shreds everything, everywhere. hands down the best board ev-ah! three 30+ seasons and still rocking strong.

woo! that was quite the rave. maybe i should post this in the reviews section!
