Chad is such an inspiration. I had almost forgot hes doing academy. I'll keep my eyes out for these for sure. 

Edit. Just checked out the website and it sounds like he's been with academy a long time. I don't remember it that way. but I'm often wrong. So. yea.

The kind of snowboard that ticks all the right boxes. However i haven't seen a Graduate in any EU shops. Maybe they haven't stocked up the whole lineup yet.

They are made by NS and all boards that they make are crazy expensive here in Euroland.

Some boards that are available are in the 450 euro range. No idea about the quality but the price seems about the same as many other MFGs.

Yeah Sims pricing is reasonable, but for some reason NS are stupid expensive, not that they have anything I'm interested in.

I imagine that's Otterstrom.  That's the base of his model, and he does that first chair circuit in CO every year.

The specs on the 163 wide graduate are damn near perfect for me, its good to see tip and tail over 31. It would be nice to see the amount of camber. I would never buy a skateboard without seeing a profile shot. I still don't understand why every snowboard sites doesn't lay a board on a fucking table and take a pic. I understand why Lib doesn't.

Looking at what to buy as an everyday board i am kind of torn between the 158 Graduate and the 156 Capita Outsiders. And it seems impossible to decide.

Let me help you

Since this is a science based site built on hard evidence. There has been plenty of input on Capita boards, besides the fact there are just about as prevalent as Burton and Lib on my home mountain. The only place I have ever seen an Academy board in the wild is in Tahoe. You need the Graduate.
