Has anyone tried this board? it would make a sick split...
I picked up a Bataleon Camel Toe on sale at %50 off...to be honest it was the shape that reminded me of the Hovercraft, which I have yet to test but yearn to own, and the price that lead me to buy it. The triple base nose I thought, might be a good idea.
So the next morning I head up the mountain to try it in some slackcountry. On the groomer it was a bit weak, also the Switchback bindings with no highback on them didn't help it carve.
But the moment I left the piste, things changed. A smile came across my face. The snow varied from nice powder to nasty wind blown ice, and this thing was able to effortlessly glide over the icy rubble then float, nose high, in the deep powder, letting me slash violently or make big sweeping rooster tails through the pow.
It was my first time riding without highbacks and the feeling is awesome.
If I could find another at a decent price it have it split, no second thoughts.
