As of now, only targets next winter:

54 US Orbit / 59 Nitro Banker

*maybe B Malavita Leather (w/ mtn logo on highback. That's all I want from it, really lol)

Though the CX is slowly creeping back on my mind, in the 58W. Or a 54W Custom even, one of the two as my fun/lively DD. But prefer this year's models, over next years for either of them.

165lb|8US B SLX|Ion Leather|56 Korua Stealth|57 T. Finder+|B mod-Cartel/Gen/GenX|Nitro Team x Drinkwater|ON

Mala Leather next year is a super dark brown-ish red. Looks really good in person.

I don't like anything. 🤨 

Maybe because i don't know exactly what i want. 😶 

think you said same thing last year.

maybe you dont like snowboard gear =I

Hehe. The only thing i bought was the Donuts. And wax/tools.

I have the Donuts and the Skipjack for freeride/pow/trees. So. I need a daily resort dick around board. 156-157 camber, on the stiffer side of medium, tight sidecut and as lightweight as possible. I kiiiiiiiiiind of don't want a twin but also not something overly directional since i have the other two boards. And while there are many boards i can't seem to find something i like. 🤐 

Niche Crux 156 19/20. Directional ttwin mid flex camber shit light. Amplid stereo 155 or 158, bit wider camber with a tighter sidecut, poppy and light as fudge.

You said you don't like Nitro but the Team is solid, the dual degressive sidecut makes for a super versatile turner. Also light but ww250 at 157.

Amplid UNW8 is super nice but super expensive. Same as the custom X.  Don't feel like spending 750 on a board.

Aah you want a super powerful board.

Almost bought an unw8 when it was available for half price in euroland.

As i said i don't know what i want. 😏 There are so many boards and can't make a decision. And there isn't one that truly stands out.

I will second the Nitro Team. Nice board. Really fun sidecut. They can be found very cheap end of season. Also the CustomX can be got for 25% off end of season if you look around.

Oh hey I know what you want! Nitro Fury 157. Stiffer than medium, really tight nice sidecut and mid wide even though the waist is 250 only (much wider than average at inserts). Same 2D specs as the diablo which is a lot of fun turning. It's twitchy on the heel edge when blasting over 50mph in non forgiving snow, but would absolutely be my all rounder if I was primarily riding mellower resort terrain. So much fun.

Current party platter dudes - what size are you riding?  I feel like I know I’d be better off on the 147 but haven’t been on a board that short since my skipjack surf hmm

i have the first year 143. kinda want next year's cause it'll be camber, but kinda don't cause they changed the tail and reduced the taper. every time i ride it i tell myself "if only this was camber," but i usually ride it on soft-to-slush conditions anyways so i guess i have other boards for that. idk why k2 has been in love with flat profile boards for the last few years. trying to copy B maybe? too bad the cool bean didn't get the camber treatment next year...

I have a PP 150 that i've been on once.  Chance I might ride it in Pow somewhere in tahoe this week.
