Very nice designs Per the usual I continue to be disappointed with "powder" boards in lengths that won't work in my local snowpack. 150cm, really
I know, I know let the mud slinging begin!!!! Point is; Size + Age (beat down joints) + Low Density Pow + Short Boards = Not Fun In other words I'm not into crouching, being tense when I ride, or having to ride a wheely all damn day. I prefer to stand relaxed over my ankles and the board while carving with very relaxed and subtle body movements. My goal is to ride chilled, not appear as though I'm taking a dump in my pants while evading swarming bees (arms flailing).

Cool shape, indeed. It appears to be a tapered directional hammock from the video...no specs on the site, yet. I acquired a 164 Lib hammock over the summer and am waiting to give it a go on a powder day. The 100 yards of groomed stuff around the lift may make for some anxious moments. We'll see. Anybody pre-ordered? Taylor-How tall are you? I just did some quick math. A 180 is roughly a 10% increase in length from 164. The Hammock has a waist width of 30.5, add 10% for a 330 waist. That is a huge board, even with a proportional width of 315-320. Just wondering.

I'm 6'3" and 215 lbs. I love the float and speed stability of big boards. And I really dislike riding little boards - feels like riding a kiddy tricycle. All personal preference, of course. 180 is not that big for me, especially with the quickness of a reverse sidecut deck like this. I think it'd be a particularly kick-ass backcountry tree board (and there are some lovely woods just up the hill from your house that come to mind...)
