Firstlight: When will you be ready to work with clients to design and build these boards?

A splitboard version of this ski -- twice as wide, just as long -- would take things a step or two beyond Furburg, which, in my opinion, though size limited, is nonetheless on the cutting edge of off-piste board design.

Be patient Taylor its coming!

These will be out before Xmas.
Just ordering the core material and finalizing the FLST 5.0.

We will have a solid or split to choose from for JaPOW in Feb 2014.
The Tailwalker will be the next project after that. If there is enough base and edge material we will make some of these too!

So many things to clear up down here at the moment @ FirstLight
*FLST 5.0 nearly finished , just need to make it lighter
*Hardboot binding Ver3 nearly finished
board design finalized, rocker jig just needs to be adjusted and we will have some prototypes ready for early 2014 testing in Japan.

More info will be leaked shortly!

Awesome idea!

Rough Estimate: How difficult/expensive will these be to get made and sent to the U.S.? You are In Australia, correct?

These are experimental boards for powder only!
Will be testing in Feb in Japan.
They will have slider tracks instead of inserts.
I will let you know when they are pressed and post images then.
Thanks for the interest

The press will take up to 210 I think?
Let me get the cores sorted and tested and then full speed aHead for Orders.
We have pressed 186.
