You have some skills for sure! Thanks for the stoke! :thumpsup:

I just got off the phone with my SB partner and I think we will start cutting for next season soon.

Think snow!

Tiltedworld
Tailclips are banned on swallows :lol:
Makes the tail of the board flex all the way to the ying yang hooks.
Nice "loose" feel.
Cheers

Very interested in how you feel the two board shapes stack up against each other, going to do a review on how they ride any time soon?

Vapor
These boards are for sale on the "USED" rack :cry:
Someone will get to ride them soon, just not me.

Cheers

@ firstlight

you drill 50 hols and but 40 inserts - this is to much. better make exklusive custom boards-ajustibal is for series board s.

the swallow is good for climb up in switch mod. the benefit is a better, easyer skinn hook mod. - the atomic poacher youse it.

14 inserts for a DIY board :thumpsup:
