Haha, not quite! I had mine finished last March, but forgot to post it up here.
Board felt very good, doesn't feel like it lost any stiffness or stability. Even rode out on a groomer back to base and felt just like it did before the cut. Skinned really well too. I'm definitely stoked on the board.


Nice job, looks great :thumpsup:
I am curious how the Highrize rocker will do while skinning on a hard or icy slope, it will take much of the skin surface off the ground, so there will be less contact surface between the skin and ground than on a cambered board.
Let me know :wink:
By now I am not much into splitting my Slackcountry UL but would like to know how it behaves as a splitty, so pls. keep updates during the season :wink:
Have a nice winter on the Split Slackcountry :thumpsup:

I was wondering the same thing about the highrise rocker when I first cut the board. Being my very first attempt at skinning last Thursday, I stuck to some groomed tracks in a closed section of the resort just to get the hang of it. It hung in there pretty well considering the packed groomer up until I tried to go straight up a 30-35 degree track and started slipping. Probably didn't have much to do with the rocker, more the angle I was trying to climb straight up without cutting back.

I'd shy away from splitting the UL boards just because of the carbon array. The pre-UL Slack that I have doesn't have the carbon array, just the carbon stringers tip to tail.

I'll keep this thread updated as I ride the board more and more.
