I'd hoped to take a demo out during the Wasatch Splitfest last year, but was committed to riding another deck at the time.

At any rate, nothing turned up in a search and I'm wondering if anyone has had any pow time on this board?
Interested to hear your thoughts, especially anyone with traditional swallowtail experience to compare to.

Cheers! :guinness:

LAte reply, but better late than never! I have had a euphoria since last winter and it has been a fun addition to my split quiver. I mostly ride it with white wave pads and no-board using it. That being said it is super fun floaty and a blast to ride! The outside radias takes a minute to get used to, as in catching an edge when relaxed and least expecting it! Other than that it is a blast.

Only downside i have seen is in the approach. I use my same skins as my other set-ups and they are less than ideal. Outside radias board with inside radias cut skins leaves a bunch of the edges exposed. Leads to an awkward and modified skinning technique. But since i bought it for deep lower angle high avi days in mellow terrain its not too bad. Exits can be pretty interesting though! Lets just say this board seeks and needs fresh snow. The outside sidecut means no- hardpack or tracked out snow at all.

Overall its a sick board to add to a split quiver and great for getting out and surfing up the white wave :headbang:

Thanks for the info!

Based on your experience I'd probably pickup a solid and hike to my lines, sounds perfect otherwise :D

Fawcett's website claims an upcoming 172 reverse sidecut board that looks pretty interesting.

Taylor I've checked this out a few times with increasingly diminishing enthusiasm. Just another cart before the horse website...

exhibit A:
"We plan to build our snowboards in three batches during the 2012 season. To help us plan each batch, we'll open an ordering window during which we will accept pre-orders. Our first batch of Tribute 164 snowboards is ready now. All pre-orders have been shipped and we are taking new orders for our current stock.
Order: Tribute 164 now until November 5, 2012 Expected ship date: Now!"

Ah. I didn't click that far through. Sounds hokey.
