The snow's started coming down here so I started the annual tuning ritual. My turn for a little snowboard geekery. The boards range from a 124cm on the left to a Tanker200 on the right. The Voile is the newest addition, I'm dying to take it out but we've still got thin coverage and I don't want to destroy it the first day out...

I'm not as bad as Refried but it's definitely a sickness. Between these, 5 surfboards and 3 skateboards, my wife is nearing her tolerance limit...
The left five boards are for the wife/kids and the right 6 are mine. That sounds fair enough! The sad part is that this doesn't include the new 150 Fish that I'm picking up for my daughter or the new mid-size freeride board for me. Gotta keep up the current ratio!

Too bad I can't ride worth a damn :oops:

Jon, I'm over on Lopez, first stop on the ferry . I'll let you know when I cut this one. Just getting parts together now. I'm going to call Voile' tomorow and order parts, I don't know what I'll use for the pucks yet, I'd like to make this board with adjustable angles.

Thomas, I'll take you up on that. Refried, which island do you live on? I'm a half hour to the ferry dock in Anacortes, perhaps if you want a little help with the Wasatch I volunteer to come over!

have a 06/07 Tanker 200 'Maori' that I got from Sandy last season. Killer board, you're welcome to try before you buy. Although, if you try it, you're sure to buy it. I had one of the older Tankers and the new ones ride quite different, better to my mind.

Thanks for the offer, I went ahead and ordered a Tanker, just waiting for it to be shipped. I've wanted one for a while and heard too many good things about them.
I just picked up another swallowtail, a Wasatch Mojo, Don't know much (anything) about them, but I plan on splitting it in the next couple weeks. I wanted a swallowtail split but I thought the Voile's were a little short for my weight, and didn't want to pay for a Prior. Maybe I'll try making some parts myself this time, It will give me something to do while waiting for the snow.

Refried & John D...

I have a 06/07 Tanker 200 'Maori' that I got from Sandy last season. Killer board, you're welcome to try before you buy. Although, if you try it, you're sure to buy it. I had one of the older Tankers and the new ones ride quite different, better to my mind.

You're welcome to try the Dupraz 178 too if you're interested.

Hopefully, I'll add a split early this season as well as a new Happy Monkey 'everyday board'.

Best,

Thomas

Are there any changes to the 178ST besides the graphics? I've been thinking of trying to talk a friend out of his ( he olny bought it beause it didn't sell in his shop, & I waited too long), If the 195 was being built again, I would have to get that though.
I've been looking at the Maori since it came out last year, I really like tapered boards after getting used to my khyber. Was thinking about a standard Tanker, but the new board sounds real nice.
