Everyday thrash about board... '01 Ride Timeless 167 used, aboves, and still up to anything I throw at it..

Hardpack, nothing fresh, make the most of the time in the resort board: '05 Ride No. 4 164.. Gotta a good deal on this last year.. No regrest.. Softer than the Timeless, but a bit more nimble and forgiving...

Pow, OSIN 4807 178... The powder boat...

deeper days a 167 salomon fastback(04-05) w/ nidecker 800's
then depending on conditions either a 160 salomon L.O.F.T.(05-06) or a 161 salomon faction(04-05) both w/ nidecker carbon 900's

i really like the salomons plus i get a great deal so i am biased.
i loved never/option in the passed but have not been on one for years.
NS didn't do to well for me, but that was years ago also, some of my friends love them.

this could be a new thread, but how many days, on average, should a board take before it is shit? 50, 75, 100 more?
of course excluding rock damage.

amen to all the Never Summer believers. Older Legacy 163 for rocks and rails, last years Lecacy 163 for all around riding, new Titan Tx 169 for big days and big mountains. I can't break the boards, but I have cracked some edges and managed to compress an edge my second day out on the Titan. The P-tex sidewall does make it easier to repair though. My old legacy probably has over 350 days and still rides like a Caddy on cruise control. One day, I'll hook up with a NS split. One day...

Hey, all-

Riding an '05 Rossi Jeremy Jones in bounds.

(Long time lurker, first post. I wasn't going to register until I got a splitboard and had something to add. Well, I got the split......just in time for a whole bunch of January rain here in the east. I'm crossing my fingers for February and March.)

I broke the core on my Salomon Fastback 174 so now I'm riding a 5 year old Burton Canyon 168

i'm in the market for a new everyday board, but the lack of decent comparative information is very frustrating...the Couloir review was good for that.

i'm also having a blast on the 160 Fish

Nidecker Carbon bindings on both, Burton Driver boots

Isn't it great when you strap into a solid board after riding the split. Feels like there is nothing on your feet.

Burton BMC 68 - now a rock board

Winterstick ST 66

Nitro Natural 61 - this board kicks ass and is really light

Salomon Sequence 58

K2 Ambush 175 for most days
K2 Fatbob 159 for deep days, which is what I've been riding most of the season here in the PNW.

I'm keeping an eye out for a used ride yukon, around 165. Maybe I'll have to check out a neversummer board after hearing so much good stuff!

Steepwater Steep 171. Narrow, stiff, way long sidecut and lots of taper make it both very quick edge to edge yet ultra, ultra stable - can ride dead flat on the base at any speed in most any conditions without it getting even remotely sketchy. On deep, soft powder days I ride a Donek Incline 168 - floats a little better than the steepwater due to slightly bigger nose and softer flex throughout.

Go to race board for groomed is a Volkl Renntiger173. Very fast and stable, yet rips big carves at speed. Nitro SC 160 slalom board for carving around human pylons, slower, of course. F2 Breezer 158 for kicking around, a mellow narrower boardercross type stick, it gets the nod for backpacking in places I don't want the split.. Nitro Pow 178 swallowtail for deep days, NOTHING beats a swallowtail for 3+ feet of pow! Hardboots and plates all around on everything. Bomber TD2 Intecs for the racy boards, flexier plates for the others.
