I'll be at Niseko Backcountry Lodge

@rooftop Ok cool. I am just around the corner from you. My factory is on the main road just down from the lifts. 

I will ask Yama what day/time he might be at the factory next week, and will let you know.

Hey @rooftop, Is there a certain day that would suit you best next week?

Hi All,

My name is Josh Mon. I own & operate Offshore.

I am new to all of this, but thought I would jump on and try and connect. Not sure if that is kosher, but being a small indie brand, it seemed like a good way to communicate with people interested in my boards.

Any questions, let me know. Happy to help out in anyway.

Cheers,

Mon

Awesome. Cheers Josh,

 I will be staying at Lodge Moiwa 834 for about a week from Feb 17. As posted above I’m interested in the Snurfs up 160. If there is a chance to do a few laps at Moiwa on one that would be great.

Also the “twin pins” on the Snurfs up. What are they? Carbon?

thanks

Hey @shredder,

Thanks for the welcome, and stoked you like my boards.

Definitely can help line up a test board if you are ever in the Niseko area. My factory is at the base of Moiwa resort. Where are you located/ride?

Cheers mate! I’m from Tassie- I chatted to you a few years back over email about demoing some boards down here when I was the buyer for the store I was working in, which has unfortunately closed now.

We are headed over to Japan Jan 2020, but I know Adam at Rhythm so maybe we can organise something for this Southern winter. 

I saw you have some boards at Twelve now too! Stoked for ya!

Hey @rooftop,

Ok no worries Alex. I will ask him what time he can make it to the factory, and try and line it up for you.

Hey @burkhart,

Definitely should not be a problem. Just keep in touch on here/social/email. Be stoked for you to try one out.

The "twin pins" and "punt pins" are both made using carbon and flax. We wrap the resin soaked carbon around the flax, in a sushi like fashion, and press inside a mold in the snowboard press. We then shape the pressed mix of carbon/flax/resin into the required shaped on a sander. The "twin pins" are smaller and are placed on an angle near the tail section to help with response, stability and drive through turns. The 'punt pins" are longer and are placed in the nose and tail areas to help with pop and stability. We developed this technology with Paul McGinty (ex-Ride/K2 Engineer, now working for Tesla), when we brought him over to the factory with Russ Winfield a few years back. It was mad few weeks of product testing different ideas, without much sleep. The flax fibres add a nice natural/damp feel, compared to just purely using carbon. 

If you have any other questions, just let me know.

Thanks for the interest in the boards!

Hey @shredder,

Yes, I remember when we were chatting. I was (and still am), very interested in the mountains of Tassie. Would love to try and get down and score both some waves and snow.

Adam is a good man, I am sure he will sort you out. Let me know when you make it over in 2020. Would be nice to meet in person and share some turns.

I hope you have been having a good summer!

Hey @rooftop,

Sorry for the late notice, but Yama will be in the factory from 5pm-6-pm today, if you want to walk down down and grab a board to demo.

Cheers,

Josh
