That sounds like an awesome board BGnight. Cannot wait to see how it turns out.

Brooks, the specs sound good for you… please keep us informed as to how this goes when you hear from Sean/Donek. My understanding is that they can make fully custom shapes and flexes, but that the rocker/camber/nose/tail profiles are limited to molds they have built. So far, all the Donek freeride and split boards I have seen have had very short tips and tails, with an abrupt turn up on the tip. Perhaps they are building some additional molds though… The short, abrupt tip turn up would not work for me (this is likely due to their primary experience with race/carving boards), hopefully they will be able to make something with a more gentle tip rise for you.

I'm waiting on him to email me back. That sucks if he is limited to his current molds. How much goes into making a mold? If he can do everything else you'd think he's just copy some of the current, popular profiles so he can pretty much do anything. I guess I could go stoudema's route through Chimera. For some reason Prior doesn't excite me although they do offer carbon. Hmmm...

How bout a pic of your board stoudema?! :headbang:

Brooks: actually, you should just go to hard boots, maybe even alpine ski boots, this will result in much more of a perfromance improvement than any board upgrade :clap:

But, to get real... Have you considered Wagner Custom? You said you liked the Winterstick ST they made you. You could use that design as a jumping off point for a custom board from them. The had a rep at the Silverton Splitfest in 2012, and he told me they would make anything I wanted, for a price... so, not as affordable as Donek though.
