K2 are just spiting out great boards this season. Simple Pleasure, 87, Cool Bean, Party Platter and Manifest. 

Though I haven't seen any new gear in person yet, the Overboard looks like the most interesting new board for this season to me.  I bet that will be a ton of fun for the smaller-to-medium sized guy looking to buck the short-fat trend by going long and skinny-tailed.  There's no replacement for edge, and with all that taper it will be heel to toe.       

Speaking of the Overboard, have you seen the specs on the Korua Bulldozer? Like a Overboard but on gear. Even the name gets me going.

Dibs for when you can't stand the ski board self-loathing anymore.

Stiff hard charger that likes to giver' ...So...If you like to rip a groomer a new asshole at mach speeds and beast off rollers like shit for brains. Mine was fun AF but I don't have a big enough mountain to ride it where I am. If I lapped JHMR regularly I'd have happily kept it.

i bought one a couple months ago.

there was a used carve air 149 for under $200 shipped. i slept on it (literally, by accident) and it was gone in the morning. oh well, not like i really needed it. with its twin shape, but wide, i though it'd be fun for groomer carving. i have happy hour, and although it's a "park" board, the raised flat profile with the rockered tips actually rails pretty good -- it's just not wide enough and my heels dig (even with my baby feet). the width of the carve air seems like it'd be the solution to this. i'm' sure i have plenty of other boards that also solve this, though.

The simple pleasures is the updated version of carve air, so if you already have one there isn't really reason to have one when the SP is wide and twinnish already, with taper that makes is initiate turns better with a more versatile shape.

I just received a brand new Simple Pleasures 151, 2018...

I noticed there wasn't a K2 official 3d, so I decided to open this one (for Doc's joy 😀 ) 

 

So, the board looks great, top notch quality, it's a little bit stiffer than I expected (my daily driver, last year was a Super 8)... I hope that after the break in period it will become softer

The base looks super serious, it seems very high quality.

can't wait to test it

 

Have you gotten a chance to ride the SP? I am torn between that and the Super 8. Rode the CarveAir for a season (sold it over the summer) and have the Assassin as a DD. Curious your thoughts between the two
